  3. Norwegian Dawn
Ship was chosen to coincide with our anniversary. Very Old ship and even with 6' swells we were rocking and rolling. Moved very slowly to give us two full days going and two full days returning. Would have liked to have had more time in Bermuda. Staff tried to make trip as pleasant as possible. Food in specialty restaurant was overcooked and very bland. Buffet had large variety and most passengers ate there. Pool was always crowded and hot tubs were constantly filled with people. Even tough to find a lounge chair during the heat of the day. Dinning was at one end of the ship and entertainment was at the other end. Paid $69 for three (3) games of bingo that paid $125 each. For our anniversary we received a small cake 4" x 4" and singing waiters. Only four (4) elevators to a group and many times they would pass your floor because of overcrowding. Highlight was room steward making us a towel animal each evening and completing his room prep very efficiently and with a smile. First experience with Norwegian and we will not be giving up our membership on Princess.

Bermuda was great - Dawn was lacking!
