  3. Norwegian Dawn
There were many older people on this cruise but everyone was nice and they knew how to have a good time. I would not recommend for younger crowd. The staff was wonderful which is the norm for NCL. I have cruised this line 6 times and each and every time have had a great experience. The shows were very good. The food was tasty and the portion sizes just right. We took a mid-ship inside cabin and although small we are only in the cabin to change and sleep. Also, there is not much to see if you get a balcony on this cruise. Quebec City and Halifax were beautiful and so clean. I recommend the 2 hour nature cruise excursion in Bar Harbor. It was informative and you did actually see wildlife and you still have time to check out the City. The Bay of Fundy excursion was kind of a bust as it was boring although you did get a decent lunch and get to see several different areas. Pre-cruise we stayed at the Grand Times Hotel in Quebec City. Very reasonably priced, large room and bathroom. You will need to ask for extra towels at check in as they only provide one towel:) The check in process after midnight was efficient and the staff very nice. We took a cab from airport to hotel and from hotel to cruise ship. This hotel only takes you to the airport.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IA 10661
Small and cozy kinda like a nyc apartment. If you only want to change and sleep this is perfect.
