Embarkation, well this was our 5th cruise with NCL never a problem, same goes for getting off the ship. Public areas were plentiful and spacious with great views, something for everyone was active to quiet from sunny to shady. Cabin Balcony Room 9 mid ship - Carpet needed to be replaced, across hall from the Internet cafe, we thought that might be a problem was it was not. The safe ...

An Enjoyable 12 Day Repositioning Cruise - NYC to Miami

We were poking around on NCL's "Hot Deals" page and came across this 12 day repositioning cruise. Norwegian's DAWN serves the New York City market during the spring and summer but gets "repositioned" to the Miami market for the winter. These cruises are popular and come with some pretty reasonable prices. A couple clicks later and we were in. This was our third cruise and our second on ...

We are a middle aged couple doing our third cruise our first trip with Norwegian Cruise Line and we came away with a positive impression of this cruise line and it's ship Dawn. We are sold on the freestyle concept offered by Norwegian as this suites our personal tastes more so than our previous trips with Princess and Carnival. There was nothing we can honestly say that was a disappointment on ...

We are two 50'somethings who have cruised 7 times on Royal Caribbean and decided to try this repositioning cruise on the Dawn for a change. We went the cheapest route possible, in an inside cabin, and for what we paid I had no expectations whatsoever about the ship. I viewed it as just a vehicle to get me to 8 beautiful ports of call and whatever was good about the ship, would be just a benefit. ...

Our first experience with NCL was less than perfect and we were not sure if we should try it again. My sister was on the Dawn in March 2009 and said that we would "love it". Weather: The sail out of NY was quite comfortable for November and the sunset was fabulous! The next 14 days were mostly calm seas and sunshine, with some beautiful white fluffy clouds just to add interest to photos. ...

It was a great itinerary. Our ...

This was our third NCL cruise - prior cruises being the Bermuda cruise on the Crown and a Caribbean cruise on the Spirit. We had enjoyed both of these so much that when we decided to cruise for a third consecutive year, there was no doubt that we would be booking with NCL. The 10/28 repositioning cruise on the Dawn had a wonderful itinerary. It left from NY, stopping at St. Thomas, Barbados, St. ...

"An excellent morning, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, this is Jimmy your cruise director..." This became the morning standard during our 12-day cruise on the Norwegian Dawn. We were traveling as a family of 10, with 6 first-time cruisers and 4 novice cruisers on their third sailing. I have found the reviews on Cruise Critic integral in gaining some perspective prior to sailing, and I hope ...

Despite the late start, rough seas, itinerary change & missing San Juan - we had a great time!!! Our embarkation wait was long but it went smoothly. We arrived at the pier around 12:00 and waited in the Latitudes Area. We sat down for lunch in the Venetian before 2:00 and were in our room before 3:00. I was disappointed that the sailaway party was in the Spinnaker instead of on the pool deck ...

This was our third cruise (the two prior were on RCCL's Explorer and Voyager), our first (and probably last) with NCL. Overall, we had an enjoyable vacation, but there were a significant number of things that were displeasing about our experience on the Dawn. I'll provide the 'laundry list': The itinerary itself - NCL left a somewhat garbled and cut-off message on our answering machine less ...
