tim c - I felt sad when I read of your unpleasant experiences on the NCL Dawn, moreso because she has become one of our favorite cruiseships. I guess every once in awhile there is an unpleasant cruise. (I have never really had a bad cruise in over 55 years of sailing!) Still, it can and apparently does happen - on all cruiselines from time to time!
This does not mean that you should give up cruising or lose touch with us here at cruise-chat. There are many other cruise opportunities out there for you to enjoy-including future NCL cruises.
The best cure for such a cruise is to keep on cruising and to stay in touch with us! We are, after all, shipmates-and we need to hear of both the good and the not so good!
Cruising remains for us-the best of all worlds- Keep at it -It will become so for you too!
