August 2015 - 7 Night Bermuda (Boston Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Dawn
Good first cruise
Cons: coffee was bad - was never hot and tasted like it was burned, only one small swimming pool - there is a kids pool, but no one takes there kids there. No lifeguard or anyone to enforce the rules (no jumping, no reserving of pool chairs, no leaving your chair for more than 30 mins), Not enough lounge chairs on the ship for everyone - even if you went to all the decks, far away from the pool, there still wasn't any available chairs. The Spinnaker lounge, where a lot of events were held, was too small, not enough chairs and was very hot. Annoying that you had to sign a receipt every time you ordered a drink on the ultimate beverage package. It's too bad you can't order professional pictures after the cruise is over online (they make you buy them in their photo gallery on the ship). Could have used 1 more day in Bermuda to not feel rushed and to be able to see everything.
Pros: nice to be able to eat when and where you wanted, staff was always very nice and tried to help (even tho sometimes they couldn't understand English very well), fun onboard activities, ship was clean, I heard the onboard daycare was free so I think that's a good feature. Ran into the same people all the time, which was nice to get to know people.
