Default Norwegian Dawn cabin question - Deck 5 oceanview
In the process of booking a 2-night cruise to nowhere on N. Dawn for this coming October. For a number of reasons, we decided on an unobstructed oceanview with picture window. There will be three of us, so one of the upper berths will be used (most likely, by me). We're OK with the set-up, but I have a question about location. The available cabins are on Deck 5, either under the casino, or near the show lounge. Any experience with cabins in these areas as far as noise?

Many thanks.

We're thinking of booking the Dawn to Bermuda over the summer. Just based on the fact that it's a cruise to nowhere an that Fall in New England is so chilly, my concern would be that this is a very Casino intensive itinerary. Not much to do but eat and gamble.

The casino is my concern, also, especially as I'd be sleeping less than three feet below it! My plan is to get to know the ship (haven't been on this class before) and find a window seat from which to watch the ocean. One reason we opted for the oceanview is that a balcony in late October sounds cold, even to me. My guys will do most of the eating!

We were originally booked on N. Dawn to Bermuda for August, but circumstances caused us to change plans. We're now on Maasdam from Montreal to Boston in July. It's just so hard to watch these ships leave without me on them.

Lisa.....For the most part the NCL Dawn is a quiet cruiser. The Oceanview Staterooms wherein a noise problem might exist are located on the Port side and are under the Casino. I suggest a cabin on the Starboard Side and closer to the Midships elevators...You will then avoid both the Casino and theatre crowd noise! The Dawn is a favorite and We have our fourth cruise on her scheduled in Dec. 2012!!! When You set sail from the Black Falcon Pier I recommend getting comfy in the Spinnaker Lounge on Deck 12 forward or the Star Bar on Deck 13 Midships!!

Bon Voyage,

BillyBuzzy

Thank you, BillyBuzzy! (I was hoping you'd see my question.) I'll make sure to go for the starboard side, as I had suspected that would be quieter. Interestingly, the midship cabins I'm being offered are slightly less expensive than the forward ones, which makes me believe that those are the ones below the casino.

As for Spinnaker's Lounge -- it will be gone by the time of my sailing, at least from its present location. The area will be replaced by suites.
