We have cruised Norwegian several times and DCL once. I hated having to account for my pool towel on Norwegian.....it was really annoying. They were frequently NOT available to check out on the pool deck and the room steward kept forgetting to leave us clean ones when he cleaned the room. It was really annoying. I loved that I could just get as many towels as I needed on the DCL ship. Having said that, DCL is MUCH higher priced than NCL. And, I can sail NCL out of NYC, eliminating the airfare expense. I can do a 7-day cruise out of NYC for less than it would cost me for a 4-day on the Dream (cruise only), PLUS the cost of airfare. Sometimes the decision is a no-brainer, but I just loved the DCL Dream so we are doing a 4-day this coming March. However, it's only because we were already planning to go to WDW that I am doing this. I doubt I would fly down to Florida JUST for the cruise.
