Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Balcony

If this had been our first cruise it probably would have been our last. Finding the larger ships quite overcrowded we decided to try one of the smaller ones, Dawn, to see if we liked it any better. I have done Breakaway, Escape and now Dawn with the same NY to Bermuda itinerary. Both my Escape cruise and Dawn were at full capacity which lets me make a better comparison.

The Good:

*Ability to get elevators was vastly better on the Dawn. I don’t understand how Escape and Breakaway have the same amount of Elevators for twice as many people and think that’s a good system. You’d still need to wait a bit on Dawn but it was nothing like the other two.

Cabin Review

Balcony

I loved the enclosed balcony. My sailing was cold and rainy and still we could sit on the balcony thanks to the bit of enclosure. I didn't find it impeded with the view at all. The room itself was dated and needed more outlets.
