Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Dawn | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015
was hesitant to book this trip for ten people consider the rating and our past cruise with NCL but I was worried for nothing! Boston port was the best embarkation we have experienced, all workers incredibly friendly and helpful, on the ship in 30 minutes. Dawn is an older ship but common areas well maintained, public bathrooms always clean; our room had typical wear and tear on furniture, curtains, and carpet. Dinner in the main dining room and garden cafe were good to great, better than our last experience. Something for everybody, if you complain then you are too picky! Never had any trouble getting a table for ten, we ate dinner usually between 6-8:15; preferred Aqua over Venetian for the atmosphere and servers. Nightly shows were fantastic! The aerial acrobats show and magician show were Vegas caliber and nothing like I have seen in my past cruises. The musicals not so much, old songs and very much cruise cheesy but still fun. The ship also rescued a sailboater in distress in the middle of the Atlantic, rescue mission and we didn't even skip a beat on our way to Bermuda! All crew members were pleasant and never showed that they were overworked; senior officers were personable and engaging from the time we boarded the ship until the moment we stepped off the ship. Read this review, look forward to your cruise, then enjoy your vacation!
