NCL GOUGES PASSENGERS. NO REASON TO "FEEL FREE" ON NCL

Review for Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Southern

NCL used to be a very friendly cruise line with great guest services. However, during our most recent two cruises with NCL (one before and one after the Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions), they have shown they know how to ruin a cruise. This southern Caribbean cruise, our third recent cruise, is no exception, just a significant number of frustrations, disappointments, broken promises that add up ...

It all started when I made reservations with an NCL AGENT for an 11 day cruise in southern Caribbean because we wanted to see St Lucia. . The agent told us that the Norwegian Dawn was a small ship but was remodelled ad looked really nice! He told us the cabin was going to be deluxe and great location ! This info stirred me sexy from getting a balcony cabin.he did not book our cabin but waited for ...

Fun 5 ports of call cruise on the NCL Dawn with one irritant in O’Sheehan’s

We really enjoyed the cruise. Normally we prefer the larger “fun” ships with NCL such as the Epic, Getaway and Escape but with five ports of call and only one day at sea it really didn’t matter not having the waterslides and other activities found only on these ships. Some (negative) general comments first. Although we still enjoy cruising with NCL, we have noticed increasing costs and ...

Summary of my recent Norwegian Dawn cruise 2/7-17/19

We chose this cruise because of its remarkable itinerary, as did eight of our friends- in a total of 5 cabins. Although not as relaxing as our previous amazing Epic transAtlantic cruise 11/4/18, it was a wonderful opportunity to stop and see islands I had not yet ever visited before to decide if I want to return to them again, despite being so busy almost daily. I had never previously been to ...

Mediocre cruise but great ports of call

We chose this cruise for 3 main reasons: cost, ports of call and our time on a future cruise credit was expiring. If you like a casual atmosphere in dining times, options and dress, this is the cruise for you. They have 3 options for breakfast, lunch and dining that don’t require extra costs or making reservations. Shorts and t-shirts are acceptable in all venues, including dining, which ...

Great size ship. Not too big. Norwegian Ships always provides first class service, amenities, food and entertainment. The ports of call were varied and safe. The excursions were awesome. Couldn’t beat the weather. The registration and de-barking process was swift and efficient. The speciality restaurants were as fine as the best in any City. The waiters are extremely well trained and ...

This is our fourth cruise with Norwegian. I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the cruise line. I like the smaller ships like the Dawn because you do not have to make reservations for the shows and the main dining. I have had really good experiences so far on all four of our cruises with Norwegian. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. This trip had a great itinerary. Nine beautiful Southern ...

Had a great time, but NCL needs to take it up a notch.

The Ship is nice. I like the layout and the pool deck layout as well. The food was good and 99% of the staff was really amazing. I had the following issues. We were seated in Venetian the first night and after 15 minutes had to find someone to help us because no one was. Then we got great service. After dinner we went to the pool deck to look around and noticed a lot of the lights strung ...

This is the first time cruiseing with NCL and our experience was great. My only down side was the age range of the cruisers since we are a younger couple. My big plus was how great our room was and how clean and how the turn down service was amazing. Our stateroom steward was Eko Miftakhul Najib he made our cruise experience great. Also the cruise director was amazing and keeping the party ...

Southern Caribbean Island Introduction

This cruise visited 6 islands in addition to Puerto Rico and was a new itinerary for us. We like the smaller ship and were familiar with the general layout of the restaurants and activity areas. Our restricted view cabin had great storage but was small and had no chair or small couch other than a stool at the desk/vanity, so I guess one sacrifices storage for seating. We had four dining ...
