Boston to Boston

This was our 20th cruise with NCL. We choose this cruise because we live about 50miles inland form Boston. We have been on the Dawn multiple times. We like the crew and the layout of the ship. We have found we ...

Incredible 2 Weeks of Sun and Fun !

This was the first time this cruise was offered, Boston to the Caribbean and back to Boston. The 6 sea days, 3 down and 3 back were something, including the Nor'easter that had the boat really rolling for about 24 ...

Norwegian gets most things right

We wanted an early winter mini-break so booked a 9-day out of Boston on the Dawn. We have been on the Dawn before and found the re-furbishing a major disappointment, and the reason for four stars vs five. Space is ...

Warm Getaway

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and price. First time ever chose the transfer and hotel package - will not do that again. Hotel was fine but transfer was awful. It took several calls and we almost ended ...

Dawning of the ship of mediocrity

In some aspects the Dawn excelled, In some she didn't do very well. For the most part I'd say our recent trip on the Dawn was middle of the road mediocre. First of all the cruise was far from full and had just ...

Great ship for R&R

I picked this cruise up at a good solo traveler price when I was looking for a relaxing vacation. As it was a repo cruise, it had some sea days which I wanted to see how I liked and was my first cruise over 7 days ...

Loved this cruise, itinerary and all of the wonderful service.

We have been on the Dawn before and really liked it. This cruise we won a bid and got upgraded to a suite. The service was impeccable. Our stateroom was incredible. The only negative would probably be the food. ...

Too much smoke

My husband and I joined his brother and girlfriend on this cruise. The port of Boston was very convenient for them. I had been on the Norwegian Pearl earlier this year - and found the Dawn a bit disappointing. While ...

First Time on Norwegian - Very Positive Experience

We would definitely choose NCL again. The variety of ports was very good and the time in ports was just right (all day). The only drawback with leaving from Boston was the 3 days down and 3 days back with no sea ...

Lots of activities, good food, and what I needed most - relaxation.

We like the freestyle cruising of Norwegian. There is no appointed place or time for a given room. The list of things to do is extensive on sea days and even enough to keep most busy even on port of call days. ...

Will probably not book again with RC.

We cruise once or twice a year but this was our first with RC. What we liked: - The variety of foods available in the Minstrel dining room and Windjammer Cafe (help yourself dining) was almost always tasty and ...

Things aren't improving on RCI

This is the annual repositioning trip from Boston to Southern Florida done each October after the Fall Foliage season in N.E. is over. It is "peopled" by many New Englanders who use it as a annual vacation or even ...
