Norwegian Cruise Line Norwegian Dawn Bahamas June 24, 2006

This was a great cruise to go on. They do everything right on Norwegian. I think there Freestyle dinning is a lot better than traditional dinning. They have a lot of different kinds of foods and restaurants. The Venetian and La Trattoria are the best restaurants. Venetian, Aqua, and Impressions all have the same menu for dinner. The Venetian is a lot better place to have breakfast and lunch than the garden café. The Garden café had only okay food. The main dinning rooms had a lot better food.

The cabins are a little on the small side at only 160 sq ft for an ocean view cabin. It can easily hold three people comfortably but it is very hard to sleep four people in one cabin. The cabin is very clean with a good amount of closet space and a nice size bathroom. There is also a good amount of lighting.

The entertainment on the ship was very good and there were no complaints. The only bad show was South Beach Rave which was all dancing. Our cruise director Matt Backer was very funny and his comedy shows were the best. The stardust theater was very nice . It had plenty of seating but I wold recommend getting there early so you can get a seat on the lower level because the balcony can have some bad views. Second City was the funniest show of the cruise. They had a lot of good entertainment.

Embarkation and disembarkation were pretty smooth besides the wait to get on the ship on embarkation. If you are going out of New York I would get to the port early. I Would definitely recommend this ship and cruise to a lot of people.
