Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review by frodobaggins: Under construction!!!
Overall Member Rating
The first cruise of the NCL Dawn out of Boston bound for Bermuda was a major disappointment. First off the ship left a bit late, the crew at the Black Falcon Terminal should take their act to reality TV. There were more people standing around on the pier supervising than actually handling the luggage.
This first cruise of the season was delayed by 2 weeks while the boat was in dry dock, it would have been nice of NCL to tell its' customers that all the work would not be completed for some time. At one point there were 2 elevators midships that were not working and when the construction cut a water line forward this put another elevator forward out of commission and flooded the forward stairway for several decks. This also put several restrooms in public areas out of service. Not all of the shops on board were open and some were still under construction. As we were leaving the ship a crane was loading several containers onto the ship, good luck to those on board.
The More crew was terrific but the food in the Freestyle restaurants did not have a good variety and the Garden Cafe selections were lukewarm if not cold. Worst of all no milk or creamer for coffee on the final day of the cruise. Less

Cabin review: BA1082 Mid-Ship Balcony
Good location, but a little far from the stairways. Carpet a bit faded, but a new flat screen TV. Just make sure the doorway between adjoining balconies has been secured, I had to prop a chair against it to stop it from banging during the cruise to Bermuda. I did ask a crew member about it and he said they was a problem with relocking it.Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BA) Reviews >>

The only plus is that you can park your car 2 blocks away, pay less than $120 for the week and walk off with your luggage to get your car on the final day.
Poor Coverage of American Spor...
Still as Good As Ever.
