  3. Norwegian Dawn
We travelled from Boston to sail on the Norwegian Dawn and stayed before the cruise at the Radisson Hotel in NYC on Lexington. This was a beautiful hotel and had a great location, away from the craziness of Times Square but close to everything. Embarkation was good but we waited in line for quite a while but we are patient people so this was no problem. Our cabin was very nice with a balcony which we used a lot even though Bermuda was extremely hot. There was a surprising amount of space in the cabin to store our clothes etc and our room stewards were just wonderful. Nothing was too much of a problem. We realized that the ship was docking in the sleepy part of Bermuda but we would suggest that you find a better itinerary than this one. It was so quiet at the Dockyard and every day we had to catch a bus or ferry to get to a good part of the island. If you are looking to get away from the world then this one is for you ! Entertainment in the main show lounge was very good and we enjoyed the shows however we have to say that the duo in the cocktail lounge was not very good. All he sang was Neil Diamond and when we actually asked for a request he told us to wait until they did their main Neil Diamond show ! Needless to say we were all "Neil Diamond" out by the end of the cruise ! His girlfriend in the duo talked more than she sang - Luckily the ship was big enough to provide a variety of entertainment and we enjoyed the pianist very much. Dave Heenan the comedian was fantastic and we think he is the best be have ever seen. The food was outstanding and we did not have one bad meal - the service was prompt and every crew member we met was very polite and accommodating. Disembarkation was very good and quick. We loved this beautiful ship and would definitely sail on NCL again and on the Dawn - but with a different itinerary !

Beautiful Ship/ Bad Dock !
