The food was cold at every station, even the fine dining. Cold and served raw hamburger. I was quarantined from gastroenteritis complications. Symptoms of hot and cold runny nose soar throat brain fog muscle break down fever loss of appetite cough diarrhea, vomiting. I was so sick the ship hospital cost me 4K. So I paid for something that ship infected me with! I was also treated with disrespect ...

We have been on many NCL ships, including the Dawn. Our cabin was great along with embankment and disembarkment and service. The ship was very clean and personnel were very friendly. However, we are not picky eaters, but when the best thing for lunch was a hotdog, you know there are poor choices. How do you screw up the food on a cruise !! The selections on the buffet were just not good and we ...

Had great difficulty getting reservations at the speciality restaurants. Travelling with friends, there were six of us. Kept telling us they couldn't accommodate six. Kept telling us to split up. Why, when you are travelling with friends. Service was poor in a lot of areas. Did not measure up to the other NCL cruises we have taken and we are platinum members. Entertainment was certainly not ...

It all started when I made reservations with an NCL AGENT for an 11 day cruise in southern Caribbean because we wanted to see St Lucia. . The agent told us that the Norwegian Dawn was a small ship but was remodelled ad looked really nice! He told us the cabin was going to be deluxe and great location ! This info stirred me sexy from getting a balcony cabin.he did not book our cabin but waited for ...

Background information: We booked our cruise vacation at the very last minute on the 6th of December, less than 3 weeks before the sail date of 12/22/2019. I have traveled with Royal Carribean (Bahamas - December 2012) and Princess Cruises (Alaska - June 2018) and would have preferred to cruise with Princess since I was thoroughly impressed with them - great quality for a great price from ...

Fun Chanukah/Christmas Cruise

A very good cruise with a very good itinerary The embarkment at Tampa was slow, and it was confusing which port to go to (port 2 is supposed to be Carnivial only but we left out of there). It was a Holiday Cruise. Christmas decorations were fun, christmas show was adorable. But being Jewish, I was impressed with Hannukah. I expected the menorah in the atrium, and even the nightly ...

Disappointment with accommodations

Chose cruise based on itinerary, date and price. Our inside cabin 11579 was little more than a closet. No chair or anywhere to sit except bed. I was embarrassed as friends could not visit as No standing room either. No bathroom ammenties included and the worst toilet tissue ever, we bought our own. We felt like second class persons on this cruise while many of our friends enjoyed upgrades to ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary being that it was going to the Panama Canal. We booked it in Feb of 2018 for what we considered a reasonable price, however the port fees were well above the normal probably due to the fees charged to go through the canal. This was our 7th NCL cruise and our 20th cruise and we have been cruising since 1995. The ship was very nice, however there was ...

Food was mediocre at best, Buffet served virtually the same food every day, Cabin door rattled constantly and the closet drawers wouldn't stay closed. False & misleading advertising regarding their "free offers." Security was nonexistent: bands of teens (4-6) terrorized some passengers. # African Americans (2 women + 1 man) and 1 Hispanic male were surrounded, physically threatened and insulted ...

I have chosen this cruise due to having good experiences on most of NCL ships, and it left from NYC which was good for me. 2 days we both wanted to take a shower and no water for showering. The last morning very early only cold water for a shower. Note: in order to get warm water the left dial had to be on 50, yes 50. 30 something shows red for danger. At times while taking a shower the water got ...
