Our first cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

While the ship and sailing company were chosen for us, as this originally started as big group/family trip, I wouldn't have chosen any other for our first cruise experience. The ship was fun, full of entertainment, food was delicious and abundant, but most of all we are extremely pleased with how incredibly clean the entire ship was maintained! We had the pleasure of being able to enjoy the ...

Very good cruise and experience. To see the fall colors was spectacular and the daily tours were well organized and wonderful. We ate in the specialty restaurants 6 nights of the 13, and the Cafe other nights. We also enjoyed O'Sheenans for lunches. Originally from upstate NY, we just had never been to the provinces, except Quebec. They were delightful and all so different. Returning to ...

DINING/DRINKS/SERVICE: We paid for the Meal Specialty Dining Package, Adult Ultimate Beverage Package and the Prepaid Service Charge. It was money well spent and a great value. We were able to eat at four specialty restaurants and the food in each was excellent. The Venetian Main Dining Room also had great food. Some of the desserts were better than what we had in the Specialty Restaurants. ...

We chose NCL due to affordability and its casual atmosphere. We especially enjoyed these entertainers: Harry 0 the Irish guy, the Ukrainian aerialists, Jose and Patti, and the Elements show. La Bistro and Teppanyaki both A+. Cagney’s B (tough filet mignon), Bamboo C (over-seasoned), O’Sheehan’s B+ (good breakfast and lunch, other times not enough servers), Venetian and Aqua B (tough red meat, over ...

We chose this cruise because our daughter and son-in-law were going along and the time frame fit their schedules. We have cruised on Norwegian many times but never on the Dawn. Prior to going, I read several negative reviews and was hesitant that we chose the right cruise for their first time. We had a wonderful time. Our cabins were always immaculate, there was no smell anywhere as I had ...

I really like Norwegian ships. I have only been on several, but plan many more. The ship was clean and the food was good. I booked the last minute as a solo traveler. I did not have any of the specials (food or beverage packages). The comp restaurants were great. The Solo Hostess made the experience fun and interesting. She made sure there was a solo meet-up every day. Made sure we had ...

We have been on the Dawn twice before this trip but this is the first time since it was refurbished. We had gotten a good price and it included prepaid tips plus three other choices of extras. We chose the Drinks Package, Internet Package and $50 per Port Excursion Credit. Since we are Platinum, we received vouchers for two alternative restaurants as well as the other Platinum perks. We chose an ...

This was our second Norwegian cruise and our first "cold-water" cruise. It was also our first experience cruising in a suite. To start, as others have pointed out, the ship was wonderfully refurbished although the layout remains quirky. That said, by day 2 it was easy to figure out where everything was and the best way to get their. Next the staff, start to finish, outstanding. El, ...

We had a tough year, so we were mainly there to rest, recharge (we all slept 12 hours the first night) and see the leaves change. it was so nice being greeted by roal who had been our concierge before on another ship. our butler had been cabin-mates with our past butler. the cruise director always made a point to stop and chat with us. our cabin (we stayed in the emerald penthouse) was ...

We have sailed with Norwegian seven times before this cruise to New England and Canada. We have done this cruise from New York but did not get to experience Prince Edward Island. Sadly we didn't get there this time either. Weather cancelled our successfully entry into this port. Thankfully, the crew was very skillful in navigating through the storm with its 85 mph winds and 20 foot seas. The ...
