Very different from the mega ships - Some good, some bad.

If this had been our first cruise it probably would have been our last. Finding the larger ships quite overcrowded we decided to try one of the smaller ones, Dawn, to see if we liked it any better. I have done ...

Not up to par with expectations.

I’ve been on 15-29 cruises in my lifetime, all of which were Royal Caribbean, and Carnival and I loved them. The food was phenomenal and the night life was amazing and fun. I had never been on a Norwegian, so I ...

Disappointing

We chose this cruise because it left from Boston and we could avoid flying. From the moment we boarded the ship, it was one disappointment after another. There were 3 of us in one cabin and when we booked, we were ...

Worst cruise yet

We enjoyed exploring Boston before cruising down to Bermuda. Let me start with saying that we had a very poor experience for a cruise that was fairly expensive. The embarkation and disembarkation was very slow and ...

Misses the mark on several key items.

We took the cruise on the Dawn out of Boston because of the ease of getting to the port and because of the price of the cruise. There were several sales and we felt like it was a good deal for the vacation. The old ...

Poor food, complacent crew. Good entertainment.

We booked this cruise on short notice as it was a good deal and we didn't have to fly for it. We knew on short notice wouldn't get a great cabin but we didn't really care. We have been on over 20 cruises on other ...

We live an hour outside Boston, we have been on the dawn more times than I care to mention. It's the simplicity of going on that cruise is why we do it. But, Norwegian needs to get a different ship in Boston. We ...

Bermuda: great! Dawn: left a lot to be desired

First, the positives: Check in was efficient. Cabin was very clean with reasonably good storage, steward was very helpful, music was much better than I expected, with lots of live performers rather than recorded ...
