At port in Cozumel
Three sisters from Kentucky and Randon Lauron, guitarist/vocalist from Phillipines.
Gatsby’s is best hangout, but super crowded since it’s the only good nightlife option.

Underwhelming

We take one or more cruises a year and usually travel on Norwegian because of the freestyle dining. This voyage was below average starting from embarkation (that was delayed over 2 hours) to poor supply management (they ran out of some wines, liquors, mixers, and even supplies for the splash academy) to below average cleaning crews, and bad communications, especially at disembarkation. The ...

This was our very first cruise on any line; we had great expectations for a terrific experience. It turns out that our cruise was not what we had hoped for from the moment we arrived at the pier. We had informed NCL of our expected arrival time of 11:30 on November 2nd many weeks before our arrival. Our cruise documents indicate NCL was aware of our arrival time. We could have taken a later ...

Went from NY to Bermuda and back aboard the Dawn. Embarkation they had many issues and we waited at the terminal for over 4hours. Disembarkation was a breeze. Was my 2nd time on the Dawn but, first time to Bermuda. I love the layout of the Dawn and the first time I went on the Dawn, January/February 2019 the staff were wonderful and, I had hoped to see some familiar faces however, it had been many ...

We love Norwegian and Bermuda, This trip we picked a smaller ship, the Dawn. After sailing on the larger ships I imagine we had a high expectation. This ship the food at the complimentary restaurants was not very good. The buffet was not good at all. The higher sit down restaurants were of but very few. Most of the servers didn't understand English. The staff was very rude or dismissive most of ...

My brother and sister in law won a cruise each. So we teamed up and went with them. Not free for us but pretty good. We had been on the Dawn 5 or 6 times before with a great experience each time. To start off the gangway machine was broken so we sat around in the NY terminal with no one explaining anything. We wound up going in on deck 4 instead of the Atrium Deck 7. Over 2 hours waiting to ...

We just arrived back from the 7 day cruise from NYC to Bermuda on the Norwegian Dawn. This was not our first trip on the Dawn, we had caught it out of Boston about five years ago, and the ship is sadly showing its age. Arriving at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal on Saturday November 2nd we were met with a slow and really disorderly boarding because the gangway had been damaged by high winds by ...

Good cruise, lousy embarkation and disembarkation

Been on 11 Norwegian cruise and this was good except for embarkation where passengers left the ship four hours late and the Norwegian check in computers were down for over two hours. I arrived at the Cruise Terminal at 11:30 am and did not board the ship until 3 pm. I was supposed to be on the ship at 12 noon with priority embarkation. Those who did not have Latitudes ranking boarded ship after ...

we were with 3 other couples all looking for laughter. three of us needed walkers or wheelchairs. embarkation was a disaster. no wheel chairs available. we were the last to get onto the boat. we were told we would have easy access. boat itself is no way handicapped friendly! going over seams at doorways were all but impossible. met a very young lady in elevator going to 12th or 13th deck ...

I have had 110+ nights cruising and this was my first time sailing with NCL and by far the worst experience. Ship was not kept clean, public bathrooms were always filthy. Food was some of the worst I have ever had cruising. Staterooms were lacking in comfort....tiny tv...only a single electrical outlet (in this day and age when we all have smart phones, smart watches, ipads and laptops that need ...

Dawn Haven section

We sailed on 11/2/19, we decided to upgrade to the Haven. Big mistake. The up charge was not worth what we received. No priority embarkation, staff at the pier was rude and discourteous, no special service in the room or from the butler. Butler did bring our meals when requested. Room service would have done the same for a fee of $8 per delivery, which is much cheaper than the Haven up charge, ...
