Our first Norwegian cruise, 12 nights with only one sea day and visiting 9 islands. Hotel aspect of the Dawn was all good, Freestyle dining enabled us to select our own style and time of meals, ship comfortable, staff excellent and cabin spacious (basic balcony) especially the bathroom. Only disappointments were that there were no ‘serious’ talks about destinations, only selling shore excursions, so it was difficult to work out what you could do onshore alone. Also the music onboard was all similar, rock/pop/party, and very loud with non stop flashing lights. More variety, blues, jazz, classics would have been appreciated.
