Norwegian Dawn

Serving as an example of the very best in freestyle cruising, Norwegian Dawn offers endless choice - from dining and relaxation to thrilling shore excursions. With options for every budget, this spacious ship is eager to ensure that all guests are able to indulge and unwind to the fullest.

About Norwegian Dawn

Offering more than a dozen different dining options, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Guests can feast on everything from teppanyaki and Brazilian grills to French bistro cuisine, on top of the more traditional cruise buffet restaurants. There are poolside cook-outs accompanied by a variety of live music, and if those don’t take your fancy, you can take more tranquil interludes with cocktails or coffee in one of the 12 bars and lounges onboard.

Staterooms and suites come in all levels of luxury, with even the most affordable options boasting comfort and style. Whether you’re splashing out on one of the largest suites at sea, with concierge and butler services to accompany your private balcony and luxury bath, or keeping it simple at an inside stateroom, you’ll travel in class.

By night, watch Broadway-style shows in the three-level theatre or try your hand at the extensive casino activities. Live music ranges from Latin bands to torch songs, and if the British-themed karaoke pub isn’t for you, maybe the signature White Hot Party nights will be.

Unwind in the spa, sauna and steam room, or take a dip in one of Norwegian Dawn’s numerous pools and hot tubs. Sports fans can enjoy outdoor golfing and multi-purpose sports courts, and the whole family will love the man-sized chess game and shuffleboard.

Whether travelling from Boston to Bermuda or chasing the Caribbean sun this winter, you’ll be spoilt rotten onboard Norwegian Dawn.
