Will a current COVID test be required if both vaccinations have been administered?

Asked by: Jimpoe
NCL recently updated their announced plans for health and safety requirements. All adult passengers now will be required to show evidence of having been fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to the embarkation of their cruise.

Does the Dawn have an observation deck similar to the Joy

Asked by: Krollsm
Unfortunately, no it doesn't. You can click on the Deck Plans link above to view the ship's layout. There are several lounge areas on the Dawn, but not a forward facing observation lounge as found on some other ships in the NCL fleet.

Can you pre-purchase a SPA PASS for Entire Cruise ?

16 Night Transatlantic - NCL Dawn

NCL may alter its rules and practices once cruising resumes, but prior to the suspension of cruising Spa passes needed to be purchased on board.

Does the Dawn have any rooms for single travelers?

Asked by: Melton
There are no Studio staterooms on the Dawn. These are the rooms found on some other NCL ships which are designed for solo travelers. It is possible, however, for single passengers to reserve an Inside, Ocean View, Balcony, or other stateroom, There usually will be an additional charge for doing this, but it sometimes may be waived if the cruise is not fully booked.

What is PrivaSea?

We have a balcony room.
Asked by: aegrant2020
PrivaSea is a term NCL uses for cabins where the hull wraps around the balcony. It usually happens in the forwardmost cabins. There's a window-like gap of maybe 4 feet square left providing a view from the balcony. It limits your view somewhat, but provides more privacy than a normal balcony in that your neighbors can't see around it to see what you're up to on your balcony. You can look at the pictures of most ships to see what they look like from the outside. Pay attention to the forward cabins on either side of the ship. You can find a view from inside by going to the Breakaway Haven Forward Facing Penthouse. One of the pictures looks out at a PrivaSea balcony.

ammenities for suite guests?

We are booked in a Aft facing penthouse suite with a large balcony. Under the FAQ it says suite guests get additional ammenities depending on the catagory: What are they? Is there complementery dinning for breakfast and lunch in a speciality reateraunt?
Asked by: Buddy186
It has been a couple of years since the last time I traveled in a Suite on a Dawn class ship, so the amenities offered today may be different from what we experienced. All Suite guests are welcome to enjoy breakfast and lunch in one of the specialty restaurants, usually Cagney's or Moderno. The coffee maker in your room typically will be a Nespresso or Keurig rather than a Hamilton Beach. The soap, shampoo, and conditioner available in your bathroom will be an upgrade from what you might encounter in a standard stateroom, and your Butler will offer you an array of hors d'oeuvres each afternoon.

How much does it cost to see a medical person on the ship? Like for sea sickness

I could not find any info online about medical help if needed
Asked by: Bethandmollie
Each NCL ship is equipped with a medical facility, and a doctor is on duty 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, NCL does not publish the rates for medical services and most costs are not covered by most health insurance plans. A visit to the medical facility for an issue such as sea sickness can run into hundreds of dollars. If you are concerned that you may need to visit the doctor while on board, it would be a good idea to look into purchasing travel insurance which specifically covers medical expenses.
