Great time despite the older demographic!

May 24th, 2019

We love the Dawn, 2nd time on her. Staff was wonderful and food was excellent. We felt the influence of the older crowd (avg age was 63, we are all 30) on the entertainment and music, but still had tons of fun. I probably wouldn't do this itinerary again, especially not in May. The weather was not great and a lot of ports weren't quite up and running for the season. But we are still glad we went and would take another trip on the Dawn if the right itinerary and right time came up! The other couple we went with were so impressed they booked another NCL cruise with us!

The good in cruise was erased by poor room quality and dangerous shore excursion

This was a huge disappointment! We are avid cruisers and expected much more. The value was missing from the get go! Very old and tired room with many defects. For the price our travel agent charged us is a big question?? Why the Dawn took a premium cabin and let it disintegrate is ??? Rust, paint drippings dirty balcony, shameful drapes and sliding door. Julie our steward tried but the balcony was the General Manager miss.

Great cruise with family. Daughter and grandson. Short drive to Boston and on ship. Bermuda was perfect, maybe a little hot. We did go in july. 7 year old Granson loved Splash Academy. The kids were first time cruisers and they liked it so much we are doing another cruise to caribbean next Feb. Small ship and easy to get around. Going on Norwegian Escape in Feb trying a bigger ship for now an 8 year old grandson. Food was great with anytime dinning worked out great for family.

Fantastic Quick Getaway!

This was a great cruise experience. Went in this cruise with my husband his mother and my mother it was our 1st NCL experience and it was fabulous. There was always activities to do on the ship. The shows were great and the food was excellent in the speciality restaurants ( we had the dining package).The buffets however were always crowded and their food was always cold so we avoided that area and the MDRs were just ok nothing to brag about.I would definitely sail NCL and the Dawn again!

Great time

Disappointed

Booking through Spirit was easy. Cruise was not valued for the cost. The initial price is a teaser then you get ripped at the ship IE $16. bucks for a beer, good food and good restaurants had an extra high cost. The private island Sturip cay was a dump.Will try another line next time.
