Our Family Cruise on the NCL Dawn
Destination: Western Caribbean
We ate breakfast in the Garden Cafe everyday with the exception of one day we went to the Venetian. The service was great but the food to me was the same, so it was easier to go to the buffet everyday. We varied for lunch-Blue Lagoon, Bimini, Garden Cafe and were never disappointed. I thought my younger son was going to turn into a chicken wing he ate so many of them. For dinner we mainly stuck to the pay restaurants, as nothing appealed to any of us in the MDR's most of the time.
We only made it to one show, the magician, who I thought did a good job. I swore this would be the cruise that I made it to the White Hot party, but it will have to be the next cruise.
Our favorite spot was the Pearly Kings Bar with Chips Ahoy the bartender. They offered 2 for 1 drinks from 4-6 pm everyday which made for a good relaxing spot at the end of the day.
We did notice the chair hogs, but not as many on this cruise. I did see some blue dot supporters too. The hot tubs were cool on the first day, but after that they were perfect.
One note about this cruise, there were only 60 cruisers under that age of 16 years, and the majority of the cruisers were 60 years old and up. The ship is in good shape and the staff very efficient. I would definitely sail on her again. Less
Cabin review: MA11652 Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin 11652-Mid Ship Mini Suite with Balcony. Good size and well appointed. Bathroom has a tub. Ample drawer and closet space. I had to crawl over my husband to open the closet. Below the Garden Cafe, but heard very little noise from it.Read All Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony (MA) Reviews >>
