Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

It was a wonderful experience. However, a few changes would just add more to the experience. Perhaps a free shuttle to and from beach or at least for one of the days. The group I was with also felt the Bermuda days were cut-short, wish we had another day in Bermuda. Everyone missed having the late night dinning option; a buffet just to have a quick bite instead of the sit down restaurant would have been a better option.
The $12.00 fee per-day should have been either part of the cruise payment or a very BIG reminder to everyone prior to the start of cruise. I think this was extremely unfair to the families that had five in their party. There should be a cap on that. Children 12 years old and under should NOT be included in that fee &/or a party of 4 or more from the same family (by home address not group). Some families had to pay an additional $ 500.00!!
The alcohol waitress/waiters got a bit annoying coming up constantly asking if you needed a drink (later finding out they are on commission) that got a bit too much. But always friendly and polite regardless
However, all the / waiters and waitresses / room service (all the customer service) were the best, polite, friendly, accommodating and very sweet!!
Would go-back !!!

Pros: Wonderful customer Service ALL WERE very friendly and accommodating

Cons: no shading option by pool area - late night dining option

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
