All in all the cruise was a great time. There was a great selection of food whenever you desired.Freestyle cruising is the way to go. We did dress up a few nights but is as you please. The one pool was not the greatest. The kids were not at the kiddy pool they were at the main pool, I guess the parents wanted to be at the main pool which made it abit crowded and lots of splashing. Best not to cruise in March I have learned.The atmosphere was great. The ports were excellent. Our inside room was larger than I expected and well maintained.One incident we had on the ship was people saving multiple seats for a night show and the other people arriving just before the show.We arrived early to get a seat and were glared at through the show because we took a seat that was being saved . Anyway, to each his own we had a great trip and purchaced a cruise reward for our next trip.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
we only dined in the main dining areas and that was enough for us. The food was great.

Matt Baker is the BOMB!! Hat's off to him and the incredible job he does. He caught up with us two days into the cruise and we were pleasantly surprised. We would go back to the Dawn for that reason alone. The last night we were there they had a Blues and Rock Jam the likes we will never experience again. I was like you were at a live concert. Always something to do . And there is always BINGO TIME.
