August 2014 - Norwegian Dawn to Bermuda
We sailed on the Dawn over Labor Day weekend without really realizing that things would be closed in Bermuda for 2 of our 3 port days. With advanced research though we found plenty of attractions open and still plenty to do. We had only ever been on the Norwegian Sky before this trip so this ship was a little bit larger and a few more people so there was a bit of an adjustment period figuring out where everything was but that is to be expected. Everyone on board was very friendly and of course the staff was wonderful. A wheel on my husbands suitcase came off between the pier and our room; the customer service people were extremely helpful and his luggage spent most of the cruise with the maintenance staff as they tried to repair it. They were unable to so we were issued an OBC without any hesitation- was not expecting that at all so it was a pleasant surprise. Because this ship was larger and the cruise was longer were able to catch more onboard shows all of which were terrific. Would highly recommend the Elements show. The only "problem" was the lack of seating at the outdoor bars. On the Sky we had practically the same seats at their outdoor bar in the pool area every night - it was more difficult to find seats on the Dawn. Just a minor inconvenience though - just a heads up to get up on deck early if you like to sit at the bar. All in all it was a great cruise and we didn't want it to end.
