  3. Norwegian Dawn
First time on a cruise. With a hurricane in the forecast for Bermuda we were a little concerned. The Captain sailed an extra day at sea, and then stayed an extra day in Bermuda, so our concerns were for naught. We booked a Penthouse Suite, great choice. Both the butler, Ceasar and our room steward Michael were top shelf. Cagney's for lunch and breakfast was a great deal. Going up in the glass elevators we could see the lines on the deck below, at Cagney's, no lines, no waits, great meals. Le Bistro was our top choice for dinner, the steak and the rack of lamb were fantastic. Plenty of choices for entertainment on the ship. We bought all the seasick stuff, our cabin was in the very front of the ship, never needed it, smooth cruise. The cabin was great, plenty of room, had breakfast in the cabin a few times, Ceasar did a fantastic job. On time and the food was still warm. Afternoon snacks, fruit, desserts, finger sandwiches. We're not big drinkers, but the wine we enjoyed was about $50.00 a bottle. A couple of drinks before supper $18.00. The $300.00 on board credit was great. (Book 11 months in advance). We were escorted by our butler, Ceasar, from the Black Falcon Cruise Port to our cabin. He took the time to explain all about the ship. Being a working stiff, I called room service once for a sandwich, not wanting to both Ceasar, he delivered the sandwich, and reminded me that he was there for us, nice touch. We've already booked for next year. (Another $300.00 credit)
