First time cruiser

Hello I leave for my first cruise on June 1 2019 out of New York on the Norwegian Dawn, going to Canada and New England.

Has anyone done this cruise? How was it?

Any tips for first time cruisers welcome as well! Thanks

Nope. Never did that cruise but heard a lot of good things about it. Enjoy.

We are doing Canada and New England next October. Hope you keep us updated on your plans! We have been on the Dawn after it was refurbished. Nice little ship. We like NCL.

I will definitely keep you updated and share my experience and pictures after the cruise.

Thank you!

it’s a great trip. We’ll be doing a long B2B on the Dawn in Sept into Oct

Unfortunately not while I’m there in June I don’t believe
