- The Norwegian Dawn is good for the whole family, reunions, or friends, but not for a formal environment.
Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review
The bed was large and the balcony was a nice touch, but we were disappointed by the single electric outlet.
The key card opens the door and even though the Balcony Staterooms are fairly spacious for a cruise ship, it's difficult to get into the room, especially with a big suitcase. On the right side is the tiny bathroom, on the left closet and storage space. Walk farther in and the room opens up a little, featuring a large, queen-size bed. Between bed and wall are about three feet of space. A french door with a child lock opens to the balcony, which is as wide as the room. At the end of the closet is a little vanity with mirror and the only 110-volt plug in the room.
The Balcony Stateroom has a very comfortable queen-size bed. There is a sofa beside it that can be used as a spare bed. In front of the sofa is a small coffee table. A larger table with chair is in a corner, directly in front of the balcony door. Above it is the TV with a couple of movie channels, several news channels, and some Norwegian information channels (like the captain's log, the bow camera, shopping advice, and the daily activities). On the left side of the bed is a simple night stand.
There is only two major problems. First, the room has only one 100-volt outlet. Another problem is the closet size, large enough for two, but three people's luggage might be stretching it. Second, if the sofa bed is unfolded it's difficult to get on the balcony.
The tiny bathroom has just enough space for one person. The sink and mirror are in the middle, with the toilet on the right and the shower on the left. Wet clothes can be hung up on the line in the shower. Handles to help passengers move around are placed strategically all over the bathroom.
Closets & Storage
The closet offers several shelves, drawers, and storage. It's also the place to look in case of an emergency, as it stores the life vests. Look underneath and you'll find a small safe. The closet itself is fairly spacious, with plenty of hangers and a built-in shelf, but we don't think it will accomodate three passengers.
In the closet, above the drawers, is a coffee machine and the mini bar with soda, beer, and wine (available for an extra charge).
The balcony is as wide as the room, with two sun chairs and a little table for food and drinks. Don't leave your door open when it's very humid outside or you'll sound an alarm. From the balcony you can't see your neighbors, but you will hear them.
