Sailing from Boston is very convenient as we live in the area and we love Bermuda. Theses two factors led us to choose to sail on NCL Dawn. We loved the casual dress onboard. It was a very relaxing cruise with Good food and service. Bar, lounge and atrium entertainment was excellent. The theatre entertainment could use improvement. Dancers very good but in need of production improvement. Bingo and Deal or no Deal Game are just money makers for NCL. Large prize bingo is a coverall which must be done in 47 numbers. I felt there should be $500 coverall for each day given the cost of bingo cards. Venetian Main Dining room ( aft) is much prettier and brighter with large windows than Aqua Dining room which is midship. Embarkation and disembarkation were very efficient. When first getting onboard the Venetian is open for seat in dining and well as Gadren buffet. We opted for the Venetian and it made the day very relaxing instead of crowded and harried at buffet.

Wonderful time

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA
Sliding doors need grease. Extremely difficult top open. Overall good room. Shower is nice rectangular walk in. However, room it is small. We have chosen a mini suite for our next cruise
