  3. Norwegian Dawn
This was our 2nd cruise on the Dawn, first time to Bermuda. The parking lot near the ship was $175 for the week but was right across the street. We had a 12pm embarkation time and the dropping luggage and initial security check was quick. It took about 20 minutes to get thru security and check in. We did opt for drink package and shore excursions. I felt the drink package was worth it, it beats coming home with a bar tab. The drinks were not watered down at all. We did most of our dining in Venetian and Aqua, they both have the same menu but I’m not a fan of the buffet. It’s crowded and the food is ok. Patti and Jose always put on a great show in the Atruim. The Elements show is a must see. Lots of things to do but be prepared for fees for many. Most staff were very pleasant and always greeted you. We had an obstructed picture window deck 8. It was mid ship and close to everything. The room was always clean. My only complaint is that smoking should not be allowed on pool deck, the port side was always full of smoke when you walked through. Most stores are closed on Sundays when you arrive in Bermuda but the dockyard has shops and restaurants that are open. Bermuda is expensive to eat, but we wanted to try some local flavor. Horseshoe Bay is a must see. Overall it was a great relaxing cruise and that’s how vacation should be. We will cruise again on Norwegian.
