Cigarette Smoke-a-thon on NCL Dawn

In response to review, cmorin41 says ...

P.O.V. I guess. We thought the cruise was awesome, except for the smokers. Dinner at Aqua and Venetian was wonderful, and the buffet line was well stocked. We enjoyed the Freestyle atmosphere. The entertainment was Top Notch! Cruise director Bobby and his team had so many fun and engaging activities that we couldn't do them all, but we sure tried! :) note: this was our first cruise, so we have no standard of measure.

I have been on this ship for that cruise, although it was a couple of years ago. We will be doing it again.

As a smoker I stayed in the designated areas, so I can't comment on those that did not. The MDR was just fine for our group and we had no trouble at all. Bermuda is fun to visit and the bus pass is a cheap way to tour the island. We bought the pass on the first day and went all over the island.

Hope your next trip there is better.

Thanks for posting your first review on the website.

Thank you for the review.

We are also non-smokers. Exposure to smoke is not just an inconvenience but rather a serious health risk for both of us.

Unfortunately, some smokers don't abide the restrictions and it puts us out of contention for participating in some things as well. You are not alone :) It varies from cruise to cruise so don't let it dissuade you from future NCL cruising. We won't because Boston is just about within spitting distance from our front door. . . though our preferred lines remain Celebrity and Princess.
