Time of year and cruise itinerary. Ports of call were about what we expected but found the tendering to be very tedious . Snacks or light food in the late afternoon could have been more varied. The crew were very polite and helpful. The entertainment for the most part was top notch and Harry O 'Donoghue present a very funny and entertaining program. In addition we had dinner with him one ...

We are in our 60s. We took the cruise because we wanted to visit new places up North before it got too cold. We knew no kids would be onboard as school started that week. So 8/31/19 12-day cruise was a Grandma & Grandpa crowd. Entertainment was great, & staterooms too. But food onboard gets a 3 out of 5. Soups were poor. Brown watery cream of mushroom soup. Minestrone was not a soup but a clear ...

I had only been on one cruise prior to this voyage and I can honestly say it was an exceptional trip. The ship was exceptionally decorated, the public rooms and restaurants felt more upscale than advertised... having said that the layout of some spaces left something to be desired. The two-story atrium where the champagne bar is located is not well devised because the Havana Cigar Club lounge, ...

Overall, we enjoyed the Dawn. Food We ate in three specialty restaurants, both main rooms and Garden Cafe. The quality of the food was consistently good. Our biggest complaint was the lack of variety for the breakfast buffet. Le Bistro and La Cucina were both excellent. Cagney’s Was ok, with my steak being too thin and over cooked. The food choices and quality in the main rooms were ...

Honest review from a 40 year old guy who works in public service and says it like it is. The Dawn is a nice ship and looked perfectly fine in all areas. I did not notice anything that needed immediate attention or to be fixed. Staff was polite and helpful when we needed something or asked for something. Our cabin steward Michael was great. I kept calling him "Sir" and he would say - "it's ...

We sailed on Dawn in December 2018 out of San Juan, and had a chance to sail again to NE/Canada in May 2019. Booked an inside on deck 10 midship. Plenty of storage for two, the round table under the TV is in the way and too large for this cabin. It was bumped right up against the bed on one side so my husband was fine getting in and out but not for me when I had to get out of bed. They need to ...

Loved the itinerary for this cruse and a chance to escape the Florida heat. Saw a lot of mixed reviews for this ship so we were a little concerned. First trip with Norwegian and overall we were very happy with our experience and will try them again for sure. The ship was great. It has been renovated and they did a nice job. It is an older ship but overall very well maintained. If you ...

I was travelling with a group of 13 ages 55-65, the ship is very nicely refurbished not the neon colors like some others. Dining options are good, there is the Venetian which is the main dining room, the Aqua, another nice dining room but more intimate, O'Shannesey's Pub a fun bar and restaurant and the buffet. We ate at the venetian for breakfast most days, as we got to warmer climates ...

There were only two instances keeping this from being the perfect cruise. First was the extremely hard sell after my massage. It made me so tense that the wonderful massage I got was null. My husband experienced the same with his massage, plus his therapist tried to do upsell in the middle of his massage. It made it to where he couldn’t relax after that. When getting a massage a person does not ...
