  3. Norwegian Dawn
We chose NCL Dawn for its adventure into the Caribbean. Especially for its eastern stops in Aruba, Jamaica and Georgetown. Stops we hadn't ventured to yet. Loved the experiences. Overall it was a excellent vacation throughout its voyage. The Norwegian Dawn she was a beauty. Restored to her amazing grace of the sea. Embarkation went smoothly. Arrived in Boston at our pier time of 10am. Got our reservation checked in. Getting on the ship was smoothly. Enjoyed lunch ,relaxed and before you knew it. She was at sea. First night aboard we had dinner at Cagney's. Dinner and Wait staff was excellent. Every night there was a different show. We especially enjoyed Patti and Jose. They were our favorites. The Grand Atrium was where they were. The Elements performance was outstanding. The Dawn performers were amazing, talented group of people. We went off The Dawn at her ports of call. Favorite one was in Jamaica. We did the 4x4 Safari to Dunn's River Falls. The experience through the area and to taste and feel the cultural atmosphere is wonderful . And to walk up the Dunn's River Falls. Excellent location and experience. Disembarkation day. Port of New Orleans. We chose the walk off with your luggage. It was the most smoothest transition from ship to port I have ever experience. We did it early. And it was smooth . Got off the ship. Through the long, never ending terminal. Grabbed a taxi to our hotel and we were checked in at our hotel before 10am...
