 The Itinerary

Norwegian Dawn takes passengers on cruises to Bermuda, Canada and New England, and the Caribbean.

On a Caribbean cruise on Norwegian Dawn, you can swim in gorgeous turquoise waters and sun on white sand beaches. Weekend cruises on Dawn allow you to leave everything behind, if just for a couple of days, and sail, take in a show, and dance.


Dining on Norwegian Dawn is a thrill. With Norwegian’s “freestyle cruising,” you have access to more than 14 restaurants serving casual, fine dining, and snack fare. There are buffets, traditional eateries, cafes, and more for your culinary pleasure. Dawn has something for nearly every palate. For smoothies and juice, you can stop by the Juice Bar. The Aqua Main Dining Room is where you’ll find healthy and light meal choices. In the Venetian Main Dining Room, master chefs prepare extraordinary dishes especially for you. Freestyle cruising, also known as freestyle dining, is a system championed by Norwegian.  Rather than fixed times for meal seatings, you can eat when you get hungry, visiting any of the several restaurants that are on board the ship.
