  3. Norwegian Dawn
I'm not sure how the cruise director maintains his energy, even when no one is looking, but his staff and the wardrobe changes kept everyone entertained all week. There were a variety of beautiful places to dine but a lot of mediocre food choices mixed in with the nice ones. The choice of activities was great and there was something for everyone so you were never bored. One unexpected highlight was the dance classes where you learned everything from salsa to waltz, something I've always wanted to try. The downside is the sales pitches and charging for every little thing even when you think it's covered in one of the packages you purchased. I'd rather pay a few hundred dollars more to not be sold water. The shows and entertainment were an unexpected highlight and the finale was the definition of spectacular. From comedy to aerial acrobatics we were captivated every night. I would cruise with Norwegian again but I'd book sooner to snatch up a larger room.

The staff were all amazing

Cabin Review

Family Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin O1 5018
The person who maintains the tiny space,Liu, is amazing but selling things like water on a ship in the middle of the ocean is appalling. The cabins use space well but the size should be more apparent at booking so we know what we're getting into.
