The Pros: Excellent food, productions, activities and the ship was very clean! The new renovations were lovely, and items that needed to be fixed were being attended to. I assume they are listening to folks' comments! So-So: I ... Read more

The cruise from Boston to Bermuda on the Dawn. The service on the Norwegian dawn was not great. We had to always go up to a very crowded bar for a drink. The waiters never came around to take our drink orders. The Staff seemed miserable ... Read more

We love this itinerary, for us it's very convenient living only 45 minutes away, no airports to contend with. We pull right up to the porters station unload the luggage and then we walk up the "to ship" escalator. Very easy, very ... Read more

My overall experience was very good. It was a little disorganized when we embarked...but not necessarily related to Norwegian. My wife and I were happy with the cabin. At first we were thinking that the 5th deck would be too low, but ... Read more

Crew members went above and beyond expectations. Great time with 21 friends and family and made new friends. Wish we would have had more time in Bermuda as I wanted to visit at least one more beach. I would definitely do it again. No Sea ... Read more

We chose this cruise as the departure port was within driving distance. My husband uses a wheelchair and flying is difficult for him. We were in handicapped accessible room 8626. The room and bathroom were fine but the room has a narrow ... Read more

This was my 12th or 13th cruise, second with NCL. I chose it based on the size of the cabin and rate for this trip to Bermuda. We had a Deluxe Owner's Suite, Cabin 12500. We also had the the Ultimate Dining Package and Ultimate Beverage ... Read more

We sailed out of Boston, our hometown, with 2 other couples for a fun week of vacation - the first time cruising for 4 of us, all in our early 30's looking to have a good time. The ship venue is very nice (a remodel took place in 2016 ... Read more

Have cruised many times on the Norwegian Dawn, departing from Boston. We live in Maine and it is so easy to get to the ship by Concord Bus line. The Dawn has done a complete renovation and is beautiful. All fresh carpeting, curtains, ... Read more

This is my husband and kids 3rd cruise and my 4th (2nd on NCL). We got a great deal on the Deluxe Owner's Suite (#12000). Being a family of 5, we are either forced to get 2 cabins or a larger suite (you'd think suites, being larger, ... Read more

Great expectations ...... not realized. This was our 4th cruise with Norwegian and second on the Dawn. We were excited to hear about the refit of the Dawn but came away with the feeling that it was fresh lipstick on the same old pig. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was our home port and easy access without flying in the night before. Getting on the ship was not too bad. We were told to arrive between 10-10:30 which we did and waited until 11:30 to board. By 2 our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of prior great experiences on NCL cruises and we wanted to experience the "fall colors cruise" of New England. The ship has been recently refurbished and is great (except the Venetian dining room ... Read more

We did BTB cruises, Canada, then Bermuda. We had sailed on the Dawn before she was refurbished, and she's definitely been spruced up! They've added a Mexican restaurant that opened July 1, and it's gaining in popularity. We ate there ... Read more

We are a group of friends who travel together every year. We thought a cruise to see fall in Canada and New England would be fun. We chose between Norweigan and Cunard based on price. We should have chosen differently. Everything costs ... Read more

I spent pre-cruise nights in Boston, and post-cruise nights in Quebec City, on this Canada/New England cruise. The independent stays really enhanced my cruise experience as i was able to explore the two cities in depth rather than spend ... Read more

Was not impressed overall. The staff always seemed unimpressed at their choice of employment and even were as candid as stating since Oceania took over things have been on the decline. The bartenders were probably the least friendly staff ... Read more

We wanted to visit Eastern Canada and New England in the fall. We chose this cruise to avoid a lot of driving between the Maritime Provinces and for the fact that it cruised from Boston which eliminated the need to fly. From the Midwest, ... Read more
