NCL Dawn Cruise from Boston to Bermuda - July 4th to July 11th

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2014


I loved the NCL Dawn.  Great ship...and AMAZING people.  Leaving from Boston was really great because of the people.  Being from New Jersey, I have a lot of options for cruise ports (Bayonne, New York, Baltimore, etc.).  However, we chose Boston and what a GREAT choice!  Everyone was extremely friendly and pleasant.  The cruise staff was awesome.  Specifically Stephen (Assistant Cruise Director) and Leo Fernandes (Aqua Dining Room).  They really were AWESOME people.  They were extremely friendly and very personable, and made you feel like family.  I know that it's part of their job to be friendly and talk to people...but they really go above and beyond their job!  They are TRULY genuine, good-hearted people.  I can honestly say that the only thing I was disappointed in that they do NOT do on the Dawn, compared to other cruise lines, is dance during dinner.  Every other cruise that I've been on (Disney, Royal Caribbean and Carnival), they entertain you by doing a dance during dinner.  And usually you have your same waiter each night for dinner.  Soooo, we just requested Leo when we were at Aqua.  ;-)  If Leo and Stephen come to New Jersey, I hope they will look us up....they treated us GREAT, and I would love to return the favor.  Thanks NCL.  GREAT VACATION!  ;-)

Some good some bad

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2014


We arrived to find our stateroom was still dirty and had items from the last cruise. Our room was warm and we had the air conditioning worked on 3 times with no improvement. There was inconsistant info regarding dress code for restaurants. There was miscommunication about reservations leaving people waiting in long lines. There was limited seating around the one pool on the cruise. Very little for the kids to do on the deck.

Excursions were overpriced and limited. We went for a fraction of the price to the same beaches on our own. People on the island were friendly and helpful.

The food was good and service was good. The shows had good variety (magic, acrobats, comedy, improv, song and dance).

We thought it would be better.

Okay

Food was not the best - I'd say it was like the food I got in college. 

Our room smelled really bad. 

Activities were fun. 

Drinks were great. 

Magician was horrible.

Common Courtesy

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2014


The staff was very polite and met all of my needs. The Captain and staff with their expertise made us feel that there was not a hurricane outside our balcony.

The biggest fault was ths SMOKING.  I WAS UNABLE TO ESCAPE THE SMOKE ON MY BALCONY AND THEREFORE IN MY ROOM.  I PAID EXTRA TO ENJOY THE BALCONY AND ENJOY THE QUIETUDE OF THE OCEAN BUT THAT WAS NOT WHAT I EXPERIENCED. I was unable to use the outside pool and needed to pay extra for the Spa.  Many of the talks were given in areas where smoking also kept me from attending. I was unable to walk the track or play shuffleboard due to smokers.

 

It would seem to me that there should be places for smokers as the cigar bar which cut down on smoke.  In this day when we know second smoke causes cancer and is not beneficial to those who have allergies that the needs of all could be met better than they are on the Dawn

 

I have been on other Norwegian cruises in the past and have been very pleased that is why I suggested to my daughter that we cruise on the Dawn.  On both the Alaska and Carribbean cruses I did not notice any smoking.

Just as everything should be

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2014


The 6/27 Boston-Bermuda sailing of the Norwegian Dawn provided a completely relaxing, enjoyable and hassle-free vacation experience.  From an embarkation process that was easy and efficient to an equally efficient debarkation process that had me and my luggage off the ship, into my car and en route home in about an hour, the entire week was characterized by things being done well and very consistently in every venue on the ship.  The ship itself was immaculately clean and in excellent repair.  The cabins and bathrooms were clean, fresh and appealing.  Every staff member was welcoming, friendly and helpful.  The breakfast buffet was a feast every day, and the food and the service in the various restaurants was very good to excellent.  Despite carrying 2700 passengers that week (more than the "normal" double occupancy capacity of 2300), the ship and hotel operations maintained high standards for service and responsiveness.  The only thing that would have been better would be an additional day in Bermuda.

Bermuda on Norwegian Dawn

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jun 20, 2014


The service on this ship was very good.  Our room attendant, Gusti, was always around with a pleasant greeting and kept our stateroom in very clean shape.  At the restaurants, the service was also very good. No waiting for any of our food or drinks and all were served by very pleasant people.  The only waiting you can expect is at restaurants that are inclusive on the cruise.  This is just the same as if you go to a restaurant at home without a reservation.  They hand you a pager and send you to a bar (but with a complimentary glass of champagne ).  This I did not like.  This being my 10th cruise, and the first time at free style dining, gave me my opinion that I don't care for the free style dining.  You lose the connection you get on other cruises with your favorite wait staff.  We weren't able to get seated after the first night with the wait staff we liked so well in the Venetian.  The food was mediocre on the ship except for Cagneys Steak House and Bamboo Restaurant which were both fantastic.  But, when you pay for a cruise, there didn't used to be paid restaurants and the meals on other lines were all great!  The pasta sauce was the most like jarred sauce possible, even at the Italian Restaurant.  Surprisingly, they had no night where they served lobster tails in the main restaurants.  That was shocking as every cruise I've gone on until now has had that lobster tail night.  Both main restaurants were good, the Venetian and Aqua.  Very different atmospheres from one another with Venetian giving the classic formal feel and Aqua a more modern contemporary feel. On board they have the Java Cafe (not complimentary), where they have confections made by Carlo's Bakery of the Cake Boss fame.  Worth trying if you've never had the confections most definitely, but an example of paying if you really want higher quality.  In short, this line gave me the impression that they would serve chain food for the cruise price, where the other lines I've cruised had high quality food everywhere and the specialty restaurants were more quaint in atmosphere as opposed to having to pay extra for a high quality meal.  The ship itself is in very good condition and really there are no complaints here.  The shows were good quality shows with a nice variety.  From a cirque de soliel type of act to second city comedy, the entertainment was comparable to other cruises.  Plenty of activities are offered all day everyday, so if someone is bored, it's their own fault.  However, again, you pay quite a lot for these games.  $30 to go bar hop at 5 bars on board.  $20 for a deal or no deal ticket, the cruise direction pushing scratch off tickets for $5 each at every venue, I heard one woman say Bingo tickets were $70 although I did not play so cannot confirm this.  The Casino had a mix of slit machines and tables so a nice variety of gambling fun.  They had tournaments you could enter, as other ships have had also. As far as Bermuda goes, once and done is my opinion.  You don't need more than two days at this very small island with not much to see and expensive prices.  Horseshoe Bay Beach is worth experiencing but if you're  not a sun worshiper, that's where it stops.  Not a lot of historic sites to see at all. We went on a deep sea fishing expedition (not offered through the cruise line) with Reef a Fishing.  This was well worth the $100 a person for 4 hours of fishing with guaranteed catch.

136 Tips for Norwegian Dawn

Go to the upper decks for a better chance at getting deck chairs. I slept kind of late on most days (like 10/11am) and didn't have too much trouble getting deck chairs up on the higher decks. If you are an earlier riser then you can easily find one with a good view up on high! Higher is less noisy!

The Garden Cafe is good for breakfast as long as you have patience. The omelet station is great. If you are health conscious then ask them to spray the pan for your omelet rather than use the oil that they ladle into the pan.

Bring a water bottle for water,iced tea,coffee,etc.

Plan your shopping in Bermuda around the fact that most places are closed on Sunday.

Make your reservations for the week first thing or else you will get stuck with bad dinner times the entire week.

See Maria and Jocka if you have a chance. Wonderful "Cirque" type show.

Must get the drink package.

The restaurants were much better than the buffet. The best place for lunch was the blue lagoon which was a sit down style place open 24 hours.

We liked the food at the Blue Lagoon. The wings and burgers were great. Breakfast there was also good.

Eat at the Venetian... dressing up at dinner is worth it!

After boarding and under way on your cruise, ask an officer (s) or someone of senior rank ( those with gold braded epaulets ) what life boat STATION and BOAT you are assigned to , go check out that station, then in case of an emergency you will have an idea of what direction to go in.

for a nice quiet breakfast we kept going to deck 8, they had a smaller buffett lined up, but it was perfect

Don't get the drink ticket if you are even a moderate drinker. We spent less than $500.00 on alcohol (we drank every day) and the drink tickets must be purchased for everyone in your room, so with taxes for 2 people a drink ticket is about $800.00.

EAT ALL YOU CAN FOOD WAS GREAT SEE JEFFERY ON THE POOL SIDE DECK FOR DRINKS

We loved the blue island cafe. Fast service, no line but yet a sit down meal that someone serves you.

They had waffle makers on the buffet, but you have to hunt for them. They are only on one side...

We didn't care for the dining room food or service, Try the specialty restaurants. The Garden Cafe was pretty good. Loved the Blue Lagoon for breakfast.

Use the library to read. Quiet and handy to outside deck on Level 12

The tables in Le Bistro are very close together on the Dawn. If you are looking for an intimate dining experience then I would avoid this ship's Le Bistro. The Le Bistro on the Jewel was set up better and a much larger room.

Eating breakfast early at the Venetian was great. Much quieter, and you don't eat too much lol. Avoid booking excursions through the cruise line. Book your activities locally, support the local international economies!
