Since its first voyage in 2002, Norwegian Dawn has delighted guests with its Caribbean tours. Her special affiliation with the port of New York is illustrated by the Statue of Liberty adorning the port side of the ship, and indeed NCL cruises enjoy a productive relationship with the New York Giants American football team. The 91,000 tonne, 965 foot family friendly experience also takes in Florida and Miami on its journey, with extended stops at selected points to allow guests to experience the Caribbean islands in all their glory.
Norwegian Dawn – What to do
Each of Norwegian Dawn’s bars offers something unique. From the quintessential English pub atmosphere and authentic ales at the Pearly Kings to margaritas at the popular Salsa Bar, each bar showcases its own themed entertainment, often in the form of live music. The showpiece of the evening entertainment this Norwegian Cruise Line ship has to offer is found in the Stardust Theatre, hosting nightly shows to take the breath away.
Children are well catered for on board Norwegian Dawn, with the 5,500 square feet of fun found at the T-Rex Childcare Centre the ideal place to leave the kids while you head off for a relaxing day of sunbathing on deck. The children will be well looked after by Norwegian Dawn’s specially trained team of staff, with an entertaining jungle gym, movie theatre and other well co-ordinated activities laid on throughout the day, as well as a fabulous swimming pool complete with water slides to ensure your children will never be bored.
With your offspring taken care of for the time being, it is time for you to head off for a day of comfort at the Oasis Pool. Take a seat up on deck and enjoy a cocktail at Topsiders or an ice cream at Sprinkles. El Dorado Spa and Beauty Centre, with its saunas, steam rooms and soothing pools and hot tubs is the perfect way to get away from it all.
Norwegian Dawn – Where to eat
Dining on board Norwegian Dawn affords unparalleled culinary choice, from steaks at Cagney’s, to French cuisine at Le Bistro, to Asian fusion at Bamboo. The main Venetian restaurant is also very popular with guests, as are the regular on-deck barbecues.
Also featuring in the line up are Italian delights at La Trattoria, light bites at the Garden Café and late night snacking available at Blue Lagoon and through Norwegian Dawn’s 24-hour room service.
The staterooms of Norwegian Dawn
Choose from eight different accommodation options to make your stay perfect. The Inside Stateroom is NCL's cheapest option, and whilst you pass up the opportunity of an ocean view the room is as spacious and comfortable as you would expect. The Oceanview Staterooms can come with or without a balcony, whilst photographic evidence reveals the Mini-Suite is much larger than its name suggests. The Romance Suite is ideal for couples, offering butler and concierge service to add that extra special touch. The Penthouse Suites and Owner’s Suites are where the sea views start to get a little bit spectacular, while the Garden Villas, with their private gardens and hot tub, are the ultimate luxury.
