Hidden charges & hidden rules

Sail Date: May 2014
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: Boston
we just finished a cruise on norwegian dawn to bermuda for 7 days. this was our 47th anniversary. our room steward, muhammad, was excellent. waiters and other sevice people were also excellent. we travel mostly on carnival and i have to say the food on the dawn is a little better than carnival and they have more selections.

problem no. 1 - first night i wore shorts to venetian restaurant and they were welcomed. next 6 nights my bermuda shorts were not allowd and like others wearing bermuda shorts we were turned away. only problem there was on 3 nights i saw men wearing dungarees allowed in this restaurant. really dungarees over bermuda shorts on a cruise to bermuda. maitre d allowed this.

problem no. 2 - we left on friday may 9th and on may 10th i went to the spa and used the gym, steam, sauna and showered and shaved. my wife did the same on monday, except shave. 2 nights later i went to the spa and was refused entry unless i paid $30 for the day. head supervisor More nikki strandraw was the woman who stop me from entering. i have been on 6 carnival cruises and there are no hidden spa fees. i read everthing about norwegian dawn rules and there is no mention as to spa fees. fittness center is listed as a no fees.

for a great reasonable meal at the dockyard head to freeport seafood restaurant just past the clocktower mall. for a great adventure take a bus ride to hamilton. i was on a ride in disney world like that. Less
