I must say, since this was our first cruise, we didn't know what to expect. Getting on the ship was not difficult at all. Once on, we were able to go up to the top deck to relax before we sailed. Everyone was in a great mood, and the cruise staff was more than happy to assist anyone, or answer any questions.
If anyone on this cruise states that they didn't have a good time, it's because they chose not to have a good time. There were activities to do throughout the day and night, and there was something for everyone.
The food that was served, was very good. We did not eat in any specialty restaurants, but the food served at the complimentary restaurants was great. A large shout out to Wayne McCoy, who was our favorite waiter in the Venetian...the Blue Lagon...and the Garden Care (yes..all three) what a nice man and a great waiter!!!
The staff on the Dawn were great. With the exception of one man at the front reception desk (I didn't get his name), the staff went out of their way to make sure everyone was treated great. Our cabin steward, Jose, put a different towel animal in our room each night. It was fun to come to the room after watching a show, going to one of the many parties, or being in the casino, to walk in and see what kind of towel animal we were given! Our room was always clean, and my daughter's bed was put down every night, and put back up in the morning!
In the Garden Cafe, we were greeted with "Washy Washy, Happy Happy". It was really very fun, as they sanitized your hands when you walked in. Even the bus staff in the restaurants went out of their way to be friendly and helpful.
Another giant shout out to Jonathan, Jo Jo, and Justin, who work on the cruise staff and were part of everything going on. They are the best.
The cruise was better than we imagined. AWESOME vacation~
