Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

I was a last minute solo traveler, scoring a good deal on the NCL website. My last NCL cruise was in late 2019, so I had some basis of comparison regarding my 2019 NCL cruise on the Joy and this 2024 cruise on the Dawn. The Dawn seemed to be lacking in staff members. I saw crew members stretched really thin in both the restaurant and on board activities areas. They are also trying to ...

7th cruise on NCL, which can officially be named my favourite cruise line (been on RCI, Celebrity, MSC and Costa). So my review might be a bit biased. But, as always a great time onboard and a hard time on this last evening knowing tomorow morning is the time we (almost) all dread : disembarkation. The Escape is a very nice ship, very clean and modern. Well maintainend, but it's kind of a new ship ...

As a 40year old who has cruised multiple cruise lines, my first experience on a NCL boat makes me consider selling my NCL stock because as a shareholder I don’t believe NCL will be able to entice the next generation of cruisers with the way the operations are run. • La Rochelle Port o We had a private tour scheduled for La Rochelle that we missed 1hr of the 2.5hr tour because the shuttle ...

A PLEASANT SPRING BREAK

The NCL Dawn is a nice sized ship with 2,340 passenger capacity. It was launched in 2002 but refurbished in 2021 and still looks good. The main lounge is the Bliss but we preferred the smaller Gatsby’s , which always seemed to be the most popular. Unlike many ships, there are no lounges on the top decks, which is a shame, so we preferred the Norwegian Spirit, Jade and even the Sun. Two ...

Lovely new ship

There is a lot to like on this new ship. The layout is great with lots of cozy outdoor areas and the decor is fresh. The suite we had was very nice with one exception: no view from our balcony (a club suite) because all you saw was a piece of white steel. Side balconies have lovely views as do other suites higher up. Service was good and personnel were friendly. As much as I liked the ship I ...

First and Last NCL Cruise

We are seasoned cruisers and always look forward to a new experience. However, NCL is a total nightmare to deal with, from start to finish. We booked the cruise and airfare through NCL the beginning of January. Ten days before our sailing, all of our flights were changed, leaving us scrambling to board the ship on time. We spent an entire day trying to rebook flights, calling NCL and both airlines ...

DON'T BELIEVE ALL OF THE NEGATIVITY

Don't understand the harsh reviews this boat has received. Yes, the buffet and central atrium area small and the food quality in the buffet is average to good but that's the case with all of the major cruise lines. If you're looking for a 4-star dining experience in a cruise ship buffet you need to be looking elsewhere. The main dining room was solid. The staff was very good, the balcony ...

Food was mediocre and entertainment was so so

I was so disappointed by the food. I had one very good meal at Moderno, but the rest of the meals were very disappointing. I cruised on a competitor in 2022 and there was no comparison. It is sad when the buffet is more appealing than the main dining rooms. The noodle bar mentioned in some reviews was available only for three meais over 11 days. Supoy paella and pad thai were major misses in ...

Still our favorite NCL ship, the Escape has something for everyone. Service was excellent as always. They’re were 2 main problems Fueling in Barcelona caused us to leave over 5 hours late. This shortened our time in Cannes, France and all excursions were cancelled. Upon returning to the ship in Cannes which was our only tender port we were greeted with very long lines and no protection from ...

Worse cruise ever !

Cruise was a major disappointment for us. I understand that NCL can not control the weather ( we had high seas, 40-60 knot winds, and temps between 40-60F for 10 of the 12 days). Where NCL failed was in the maintenance of the ship. The ship is worn and tired, worn carpets, worn mattresses, and the common areas just plain old worn out ( we actually saw a light fixture on the pool deck held on ...
