Norwegian Dawn is a tale of two cities. On the one hand, the fitness center, spa, and many of the restaurant areas are very nice, very updated, and very usable. On the other hand, the ship is suffering from a ...

Service was not great.

The cruise from Boston to Bermuda on the Dawn. The service on the Norwegian dawn was not great. We had to always go up to a very crowded bar for a drink. The waiters never came around to take our drink orders. ...

Seems to have improved since our last time on NCL

We chose this cruise as the departure port was within driving distance. My husband uses a wheelchair and flying is difficult for him. We were in handicapped accessible room 8626. The room and bathroom were fine ...

Great destination in Bermuda but mediocre cruise in getting there and back.

We chose this cruise because it was our home port and easy access without flying in the night before. Getting on the ship was not too bad. We were told to arrive between 10-10:30 which we did and waited until ...

Better but could still use some improvement.

I have reviewed this ship several times, as we take this cruise every year, but I think that an update is in order as this is trip was after the recent dry dock. Overall the ship looked great. Nicer décor ...

This was our 4th trip on the Dawn. We like the size and and layout. The renovations were purely cosmetic - new carpet, wall decor, curtains, etc. There was still window glass cracks, rust on the balconies, etc. No ...

Good cruise; would prefer more time off the boat.

We chose a cruise for a family trip with 27 people ranging in age from 1 to 84. The good points on the boat were the cleanliness and the staff - they provided great service. We had a promotion of a free ultimate ...
