I must say I was a little skeptical about going on a cruise vacation when one of my girlfriends suggested it for our girls vacation. The prior cruise a few years ago I had gone on was not a fun time at all. It was on a different cruise ... Read more

We have taken this cruise every year for the past 6 years, as it is so convenient for MA residents, and we love Bermuda. The entertainment itself was fine the first time we took the cruise, and the quality of the entertainment is good, ... Read more

We booked this cruise to join extended family on vacation. Everyone that worked on the ship was friendly, helpful and a lot of fun! We had an inside stateroom and slept 2 adults and 2 teens with no problem. The room is small, but you don't ... Read more

Had a great time. Crew was very friendly and attentive and most work very hard to make your trip very enjoyable. Shows could use a refreshing but still entertaining. Garden buffet was good but a lot of the same selections every night. Los ... Read more

We did a Bermuda cruise out of Boston on June 9-16. We liked the Friday departure and the price was much better out of Boston. This cruise spent almost 3 days in Bermuda. We arrived in the afternoon on Sunday and stayed through 5:00 PM ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we live in Massachusetts, meaning no flights or hotel expenses. Bermuda is an enchanting Island which we have cruised to many times, and always find interesting things to do and see. We arrived at Black ... Read more

Once again we had a fabulous time on the Dawn. Embarkation went smoothly. We hired a company to transport a group of 10 and were dropped off right at the pier. This year we went the 1st week in June. Weather was great. The seas were ... Read more

We picked the cruise for the convenience of not having to fly to the port of embarkation (Boston) and the destination (Bermuda) which is our favorite island. We sailed on the Norwegian Dawn on June 2nd from Boston. Very convenient going ... Read more

First Family cruise but won't be our last! My Family of 4 with the kids ages 6&8 really enjoyed the time away. We chose to put down technology, and enjoy the view from out penthouse balcony, see shows at night, have family pool and ... Read more

The Norwegian staff go out of their way to make the cruise as pleasurable as possible, from your dining, entertainment, room and excursion experiences. Bermuda was an absolute paradise. My husband and I felt most comfortable eating at ... Read more

The cruise was ok. We had a great time with friends. I feel that Norwegian has gone down hill some in their service in the restaurants and the food itself was not what it used to be. We had a great cabin and Steward. I loved the ... Read more

Nice cruise to Bermuda. Pool deck was packed most days with folks knee deep trying to get their drinks from the bar since beverage servers were not to be seen. Entertainment was great, food in the buffet was good, and service and food ... Read more

I love travelling out of Boston - the Pier is user friendly and the check-in goes quickly. I have some mobility challenges. First trip back on the Dawn since it has been refurbished and it does look and feel fresher. I was in a 2br ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we live in the greater Boston area so no flights were needed. We picked the first week in June because we thought there would be less children on board (before schools get out but there were still more than ... Read more

Chose this cruise as we wanted to go to Bermuda and the access was better in Boston than it would be in New York. Have taken one cruise out of New York, and that will be the last, and I didn't have to drive to the cruise port as I have ... Read more

We were met by our Butler and concierge who were nothing but wonderful to us the entire time. But really what made our vacation (besides beautiful Bermuda) was our room steward. He really was so amazing with how attentive he was and how ... Read more

The Norwegian Dawn is a "well run machine". The staff is exceptional; particularly housekeeping. The food is just OK; even specialty dining. Teppanyaki was the best of all the specialty dining restaurants. The thermal pass is a ... Read more

This is our fourth cruise on NCL, 3rd on the Dawn. We love the fact it leaves out of Boston and that we need not fly. It means our vacation starts sooner with way less stress. I bought the spa pass for the week and it was worth every ... Read more
