First Time on the Dawn

This was our first time on the Dawn, and it more than met our expectations. We wanted to go to Bermuda, but not on the bigger ships. We have sailed many other NCL ships, (Starward, Magesty, Norway, Jewel, Gem and ...

Not bad but not outstanding

I live in the Boston area so a cruise out of Boston and/or terminating in Boston is a plus (minimizing air travel is always a plus). Embarking/disembarking was typical for an ocean going cruise as was the cabin and ...

The Fun went from "Maybe" to "Scabies"

I chose this cruise for my boyfriend and I because it seemed like a good bang for your buck at the time. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of flying and thought this could be a fun alternative. The cruise itself was super ...

Casual cruise with the best staff ever.

The crew was exceptional in every respect. The fresh fruit was to die for. The specialty steak house was perfect. The usual staterooms were adequate if not too large. 165 feet was one with a balcony. The toilet ...

I found inaccurate charges on my bill when I got home. Getting it straightened out is taking months and the customer service people are not real helpful. I have cruised on the Dawn 5 times. It is a nice little ...

Bermuda was great - Dawn was lacking!

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 ...

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 ...
