7 Night Bermuda (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 01, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Dawn
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

My wife and I sailed on the Norwegian Dawn out of New York harbor. The
departure from our pier on the west side of New York City was very easy. The cruise to Bermuda was very pleasant aboard this Norwegian Cruise line ship. The crew was very friendly. There is nothing like sailing out of New York passing the city skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
The Dawn offers freestyle cruising-which allows you to eat when and where you want. Overall, the food was very good and plentiful. We ate in one of the speciality restaurants-Cagneys. It was good. However, we preferred eating in the Garden Cafe-which is buffet style. The choices were great-you ate as little or as much as you wanted.
Our cabin stewards were great. The entertainment was good. We especially like Jose and Patti in the Dazzles Lounge. We saw them every night.
Bermuda is a pretty place. We were fortunate to have good weather and calm seas.
Overall, my wife and I were very happy with the cruise line. It was great not having to fly to our ship. We are from Long Island and we actually drove into New York to get to the pier. We parked at a garage about three blocks from the pier. Not having to pay outrageous airfares or baggage fees and wait out airport delays was terrific.
We would certainly cruise with Norwegian again.

Buy the multi-day-ferry and boat pass. The pass allows unlimited use of the bus or ferry during your stay.

We didn't see any police officers in their starch white bermuda shorts.-that was disappointing The beaches were very pretty. We liked the pastel colored buildings. Beware-the people in Bermuda drive on the opposite side of the road-that is very hard to get used to.

Pros: The relaxed atmosphere aboard the Norwegian Dawn

Cons: Nothing really.

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
