Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review to Bermuda
Review SummaryA relaxing vacation shouldn't involve getting up by 7 AM, then racing to save a lounge seat for the day. Most families had mom, dad or grandpa using towels to reserve seats for kids, spouses, backpacks, water bottles and anything or anyone else they could think of. The signs say no seats can be reserved more than 30 minutes but we never saw the staff doing anything about it. A quick look at the area around the pool saw maybe 30 or 40 % of the seats were being used at all, the rest were being hoarded by rude passengers. We also didn't expect the main restaurant to resemble a high school cafeteria. Lesson learned, next time we'll try to find a slightly "classier" ship.
