I wanted to write this review while it was still fresh in my mind. Just got off ncl Dawn Boston to Bermuda 10/7/16-10/14/16 this am. The crew was incredible as usual. Very friendly, outgoing and eager to please you in every way. Our room steward was great. Even though we had to leave Bermuda a day early the captain did everything possible to keep us in warm weather and blue skies as much as possible. Saturday night and Tuesday day were extremiley rough seas. The captain and crew still made these days enjoyable.

The not so good: we had only 400 kids aboard and it felt like 1,000. The main pool and jacquzz's were packed with kids every day. No adult could ever get into or want to get into either one the entire cruise. The children were mostly unsupervised by there parents. FYI, if a child needs to wear swimmies or a life jacket they should be in the kiddie pool.

I have been on summer cruises Boston to Bermuda with less kids in the adult area even though there were twice as many kids. We ended up getting the spa pass which nice for peace and quite but I do not feel I should have to to enjoy a pool and hot tub. We will probably never take another short cruise to avoid this situation again.

Cabin Review

Cabin OA

Too far forward. Very noisy due to main theater below and rough weather causing major huge banging noise of waves hitting the hull

Embarkation in Boston was a breeze.
