Ship Facts: Norwegian Dawn Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Dawn Deck Plans
Fun in the sun after a stormy ride!

The cruise started under stormy skies, with a tropical storm approaching. Seas at one point were 18-27 feet with gale force winds. This caused the closing of the Promenade deck, so we stayed indoors for the trip to Bermuda. There was plenty to explore on the inside of the ship, so that was fine.

First thing, get yourself a soda package before you start getting charged individually for soft drinks.

The food was good, but I didn't eat in any of the standard dining rooms. I typically started at the breakfast buffet, which had a nice selection of healthy choices daily. The hibachi restaurant was a great option for dinner - be sure to make reservations early to ensure you get a spot. There are only two tables/grills available for each seating. The food was well worth it!

The ship arrived in Bermuda at the Naval Dockyard. Great spot for exploring, shopping and dining.

If you miss the ferry ride back, you can always take the bus - it just takes a bit longer. Better than trying to rent a moped, as the roads are scarily narrow, the locals drive very fast, and those from the US will be challenged to get acclimated to driving on the 'wrong' side of the road. Better to let the bus driver manage that!

Back on the ship the entertainment was top notch, as was the service. I had the best room steward ever, Marcel. Each day he greeted me with a smile and would check in frequently to make sure I had everything I needed. Truly outstanding!
