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 ... Read more

When we booked our cruise we were assigned a cabin on the ninth deck. We received an email about bidding on an upgrade. So I decided that I would put in a very low bid and see what happened. To my surprise a $50 bid got us an upgrade to a ... Read more

Overall the experience was very good. The Norwegian staff were excellent. They were extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the food on board as well. La Cucina was excellent as well as Cagney's. Los Lobos was a let down for us. We had ... Read more

This was our first time on-board the Dawn since the upgrade. Everything was excellent. The best money spent on the cruise is using the facilities at the Spa. We ended up there almost every day - relaxing and meeting new friends. There ... Read more

Convenience to Black Falcon Pier... no air travel... that is the only selling point that I have for this cruise. My wife and I take this cruise each year (20 in all). And for the last 6 years this cruise (NCL Dawn) is just a rerun of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because neither of us had been to Bermuda and it was a good deal within driving distance from home... The good: No lines for anything, 3 minutes for check-in! I suspect this ship was less than half full because, ... Read more
