June 2014 - Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda
This is the third time that I have sailed with the Dawn from Boston to Bermuda. I love the ease of this vacation because we are close to Boston. When I come back from this vacation I feel pampered and relaxed. This time was no different.
The crew was wonderful to us. Everyone was polite and friendly. The food was much better than I would cook at home. I love Bermuda. We had a terrific lunch at the Swizzle Inn. I loved sitting on the porch drinking Rum Swizzles. I love the beaches. We snorkled and then one day we were the only 4 people on Clearwater beach. It was heaven! The weather was beautiful. We took the Fun Bus from St. George, and I recommend that as a great way to get to Clearwater.Beach.
I have read unfavorable reviews about this cruise ship before. I think that it is all what you expect from your vacation. If you want luxury and fine dining - you may be disappointed. If you want a great way to spend 3 days in Bermuda with good food and great ship and friendly crew - I think you will like this cruise. I do have two recommendations for Norweigian though.
1. you need to have a place for people to sit that isn't a restaurant and isn't a library. We went with another couple and wanted to play cards and there really isn't a great place to do that at night.
2. The service in the Blue Lagoon borders on unfriendly. It is the only place in the ship that I felt that the staff wasn't up to par. They were not attentive and almost rude.
