This was our first re-positioning cruise and we weren't expecting the majority of guests to be a part of the over 60 crowd, as we are both under 30. This is one of Norwegian's older ships and while it was clear they tried to update ... Read more

We had been on the Dawn last year so we knew a bit about the ship. It is a nice size ship, plenty of activities and there is a lot of variety for food. We had the dining package so we got to eat it all the specialty restaurants. Our ... Read more

This was a repositioning cruise ending in New Orleans. Perhaps this may explain the apparent lack of knowledge by the personnal staffing the main desk regarding general information about the next(s) port. This ship is in need of a ... Read more

The crew were very good, cabin OK and the food satisfactory. The entertainment and shows excellent. The ship usage of space and some NCL policies created problems. The space usage on the ship was something of a mystery with ... Read more

Our cruise left Boston on October 30. The first three days were nice, getting to know the ship and activities for the cruise. Dingo Dave "cruise director " and his staff did a great job of keeping all occupied with activities ... Read more

This was our second time on the Dawn, we were not overly impressed 2years ago about the pool layout, and the lack of Great outdoors. However, this trip surpassed my expectations. Embarkation was fast and seamless. We had fantastic ... Read more

This was the 2nd cruise we had taken on Norwegian. We have cruised 2 other lines. Norwegian falls far below what I expect of a cruise. The bars were grossly understaffed, with a particularly long wait - 15 min or more - at the Topsiders ... Read more

First time on the Dawn and I enjoyed the trip. However there were a few areas that will stick in the back of my mind. We were in cabin 10512, we met our steward upon arrival to the room. Seemed like a nice guy, however, did not turn down ... Read more

This was my fifth time to Bermuda and the third time on the Dawn. Knowing the layout of the ship sure helped to get to the shows and events around the ship. First of all, Dingo Dave is a blast, he had me laughing and he seems to really ... Read more

Taking the Dawn from Boston to Bermuda is the easiest vacation ever. We drive less than an hour, park next to the waiting ship and hop aboard complete with our own pillows and a case of bottled water. No planes, no tours to book, no ... Read more

This was a girls' trip, booked mainly because I tripped across a great deal almost a year ago. We booked an obstructed oceanview room (8082), which was even better than I anticipated. It was a sideways cabin, so it was much roomier than ... Read more

As an 8 time NCL customer - we were delighted with the one week cruse to Bermuda. From Boston - it was an smooth check-in and finding our cabin ready to be occupied was a plus at 1:30 in the afternoon. NCL likes to have many of its ... Read more

This was my 10th cruise on NCL but my first out of Boston and first to Bermuda. I have been on the Dawn twice and it is not overwhelming like some of the newer larger ships. Embarkation/disembarkation was easy and smooth however the Boston ... Read more

We are just off the Norwegian Dawn, Boston to Bermuda. This is the 2nd time doing this cruise and we would do it again in a heart beat. Embarkation was painless. We were on board by noon and our room was ready right away. Dining ... Read more

Overall, the cruise, ship and accommodations were good, but not great. There were a number of little irritations that detracted from overall cruise experience. Freestyle dining sounded attractive in concept but failed in execution. Aqua ... Read more
