Overview

Extensively renovated in 2016, the 2,340-passenger Norwegian Dawn includes guest favorites like the Los Lobos authentic Mexican cantina and The Cellars wine bar.

While younger cruisers can take advantage of kids and teens clubs, play in the dinosaur-themed kids pool or hang out in the video arcade, adults can relax in six hot tubs, test their luck at the casino or get treatments at the Mandara Spa.

Passengers were impressed with the variety of the 14 dining options, including eight specialty venues that range from a sushi bar to a Brazilian steakhouse. More casual spots include the newly refurbished O’Sheehan’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill, which is open 24 hours a day.

The ship's accommodations also received a makeover; notably, the expanded Garden Villa Suites can comfortably sleep up to seven passengers. Other lodging options include Mini-Suites and Balcony, Oceanview and Interior category cabins. All staterooms come equipped with flat-screen TVs and minibars.

In 2018-19, Norwegian Dawn departs from Tampa, Boston, Miami, New York, Quebec City and Puerto Rico for sailings in the Caribbean and Canada
