NCL DAWN Boston to Bermuda May 16-23, 2014
We arrived at the Black Falcon Cruiseport about 11:15, we were in a suite with the adjoining mini suite. The mini suite was for 3 under 21 year olds, so we were all allowed to board together. We had a very quick snack in the little "suite reception room" and we were brought right on to the ship. We were probably in the Bimini Lounge by noon having our first drink.
Because we were in a suite we could have breakfast and lunch in Cagneys on sea days, while in Bermuda, we could have breakfast and lunch in LaCuccina. We never paid extra for any of the fee restaurants and we had very good meals in Aqua and the Venetian. The kids had lots of late night snacks in the Blue Lagoon and at the Garden Buffet.
Our concierge was great, John DeSouza. Our butler, Mansour was very good and I cant say enough about our room steward, Chris. Every afternoon we were brought a tray of cut up fresh fruit, More chocolates and all sorts of treats No wonder I gained 8 lbs.
Best bartender on board, Chips Ahoy in the Pearly Kings bar, he was great. Remembered our names, what we were drinking and made us feel at home. That is also the site of karaoke most nights... So much fun. Be prepared to hear 3 people a night sing Sweet Caroline (Boston favorite).
Cruise Director "Dingo Dave" was alot of fun.
We went to the Not So Newlywed Show (very funny) the Perfect Couple Show (also very funny) and one show in the Stardust, it was a 70's and 80's show......GREAT!! There were a couple of others offered that we didnt go to.
Casino---ugh, didnt win, and now the Casino is open while in Bermuda from 9 pm to 5 am.....
Pool--didnt use it
Bermuda--Went jet skiing right off the ship, KS Watersports, there were 9 of us, two groups, we had a ball. My brother was staying at the COCO REEF resort at Elbow Bay so we took the bus to visit him. The next day we took the ferry to St George and then the small bus to Tobacco Bay for a couple of hours, then we took the bus to the Swizzle Inn.....had a blast there, then we took the bus to Hamilton and the ferry back to the Dockyard. The last day we hung out at the ship and around the dockyard.
Bonefish Bar--Fun place, we were in dance contests great DJ, even though he kept refering to Big Papi as Victor Ortiz..... Less
