  3. Norwegian Dawn
Me and my husband are first time cruisers.-Went with other family members (which were seasoned cruisers. What a delight. Getting on the ship, getting off the ship (went like clockwork. The whole cruise staff was wonderful. The cabin was larger than expected, and very clean and colorful. I was told to get a balcony room, and glad We did. My husband wore the patch for sea sickness--and only felt the motion of the boat leaving Boston the first day. , After that, it was smooth sailing. We would encourage everyone to book reservations for All the restaurants on the ship. Before you leave. We did, and boy a lot of people were scurrying to find reservations . Food was excellent. Cagney's Steak house was our favorite. Bermuda was beautiful., and snorkel beach excursion was awesome. Great value for the money. The Dawn is a beautiful ship. And would highly recommend anyone to Feel Free to Explore and cruise on this trip fr/ Boston. The only thing I had to say on the negative side, was the pool (only one pool and small). Did not have a chance to go in, Too crowded and the hot tubs too. with Dancing, Drinking, 18-30 somebodies. Will most certainly go on another cruise on Norwegian. We have to start saving. !!

    Snorkel Beach was a short walk fr/ the ship--Great value for the money. Beach, umbrella, chaise lounge, snorkel equipment, and 1 hr of paddleboarding, a/o kayaking. The water, , fish, was amazing.
