We took abalcony cabin and enjoyed every moment. Watching sunsets and sunrises off the balcony as well as simply enjoying the ocean was well worth it!

5 out of 5
The folkloric dancers were entertaining, but again we were faced with the ever present vendors hawking their wares.
Don't Miss: The cathedral is absolutely beautiful.

Pros: The variety of things to do on the ship and in port.

Cons: Constantly being bombarded to spend more money.

Recommends Dawn Princess? Yes!
