Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2014
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

The embarking was the worst so far. Tampa could take a few lessions from Miami when it comes to this the line to get on was winding outside an even in December its hot in Florida. The cabin was great we sailed as always in a BA mid ship cabin very clean and our steward was very attentive. The food on the Dawn was sub par for all the dining options except for the specialty restaurants they didnt disapoint and my fav. on this ship was La Bistro!

The ship: In one word dirty, the common areas unkept and the restrooms un clean definatly not what we had experianced on our other two cruise's with this cruise line. The entertainment was just ok we went to all the shows and walked out on two of them.

Ports of Call: We had a great time at our ports of call

Port Reviews


Port was a little scarey hung around the shopping area, danced with the locals then went back to the boat for lunch and enjoyed the sun deck for the rest of the day.

Belize City

The best excursion I have EVER taken. We used a local service and man it was worth every penny I paid and then some. After we hiked 45min through the jungle we had reached our destination the water was cool and the cave were ever cooler!! Excellant trip excellant guide he made sure we saw everything we needed to and he was generiously rewarded!!!
