My Wife and I have cruised on the Dawn 2 years in a row Dec 2012 and Dec 2013 and have enjoyed the cruise and the Staff very much. We found out the ship will be moving to New Orleans and we have never been there before. We live in the "Redneck Riveria" Panhandle of Florida and can still drive there so we maybe trying it from New Orleans some day. We like the Tampa Port parking and easy access. We are again going out of there this Dec but on our first cruise ship we lived in the North and went out of Baltimore on the Carnival Pride 2 times to the Bahamas. That ship will now be in Tampa this winter and we will be back on it in Dec. The NCL Dawn was a great ship and we had the best times on it. We do not drink alcohol and it seemed like only a few times we ran into drunks. Security is great. We got interior room by the crews area and meant so many nice crew we felt like we belonged there. Sade the Giftshop lady was the greatest and friendliest lady we have had the pleasure of knowing both cruises. We will miss her. I really enjoyed the Mayan Ruins and was lucky enough to climb 2 of them. Cozumel was beautiful on the beach trip like living in a picture postcard. I took close to 1000 pictures all over on this cruise. I would recommend The Dawn to anyone. We traveled like 1st class but cost was not that much. Really Enjoyed the 2 cruises. Thank you Dawn Crew, we miss you!
