Not Dirty Dawn, But Extremely Disappointing Dawn

I booked a last minute porthole cabin on the deck 4. This cruise jammed five ports into seven days (Halifax, St. John, Portland, Bar Harbor, and Newport, which was canceled due to weather). The Dawn's ...

Hot cabin (not the good way, as in a sauna), poor service, bathroom issues.

We chose this cruise because of the length of the trip, the reviews from our travel agent and time schedule. The embarkation process was smooth, the fact that we arrived 3 hours after the initial process help a lot. ...
