Had better cruises with norweigan
"wanted a short cruise and have always loved Norweigan and recommend it to others. This cruise offered very little in entertainment, things to do were lame (such as games). Found the elevators in the morning..."Read More

Post cruise report: To start, I have to say the sanitary precautions on the cruise were outstanding. Every single day the crew washed down all the walls, doors, railings, etc. in every corridor, you couldn't walk two feet without tripping over a hand sanitizer dispenser, and the "washy-washy" (really, they say that) staff were constantly spraying your hands. They were worse than the perfume ...

Me my wife and 20yo son decided on doing a family cruise. Our son is on spring break from UF and he wanted to do a cruise for his break, and it's been 5 years since our last cruise.We chose this cruise because we live 30 minutes from the port of Tampa. Embarkation: We arrived at the port around 10:30am. We parked the car in the parking garage across the street and carried our bags over.We ...

This is my first cruise, and honeymoon. I spent a good amount of money on the room with the specialty dining package, drink package, and excursions. From what I’ve been told the food is really good and drinks plentiful, I guess we will see. Day 1: Onboarding Arrived at Tampa Port via Uber, nice lady, she was distraught by the law enforcements persona, the way they “directed” her. Exiting ...

Just off the Dawn. This was our 12th cruise. 10th with NCL. We have done this itinerary before, but this was what was available from Tampa, a day after a wedding we attended. No issues with service from staff, from stewards to waiters to bar staff, all good. We had the 3 day SDP, and went to Moderno, La Cuchina, and Cagney's all were good. We did one night at Bamboo, our first time it was ...

this was an easy local cruise because we live in the Tampa area. So it is convenient. This time we used Terminal 2 which is small and does not accomodate the crows on enmabkation day. The ship is old and in need of updating and cleaning. The food was very good in the Buffet. We though that the Bistro has gone down hill as has Cagneys. Moderno was very good. The ship layout is not good and is ...

Relatively good cruise. It was our longest but it was over before we knew it. The embarkation process was problematic. We had to sit in wheelchair access section and wait to be called. That section was in the direct line of the sun. I was sunburned before I got on the ship. Plus there was a computer problem that shut down the the baggage check just as we stepped up the the conveyor belt. It was ...

We have been cruising with NCL for 19 years and we are Latitudes Gold members. We took this 14 day cruise because the itinerary looked fabulous. Overall the quality of this cruise was only average and NCL in general has declined. Gone are the towel animals, lobster/shrimp dinners, midnight chocolate buffet, and other perks that simply made the cruise special. NCL has chosen instead to up charge ...

This was our 9th cruise with NCL. We were looking for a relaxing vacation with warm weather to some ports that we hadn’t visited. We were on the Dawn several years ago. It is a mid-sized ship and easy to get around. We booked an aft suite which had a great balcony . By booking a suite we had access to Moderno for breakfast and lunch daily. Suite guests also have a butler and concierge which makes ...

I am going to start with the positives. The staff was wonderful; professional and friendly. We didn't do shore excursions so I can't comment on that but the ports were very nice. We ate only in specialty restaurants. The food was excellent and the service was superb. The entertainment was great especially the Rockaway Duo who performed nightly in the atrium. Fitness center was good; many ...

We have sailed multiple times on Norwegian and also on other cruise lines. Most of the usual items on this cruise were fine. Housekeeping and dining room staff were lovely, polite, accommodating and efficient. It was a good itinerary with a nice balance off sea days and ports. The Dawn, while in need of a refurbishment, was clean and had the right amenities. The entertainment, especially the ...
