Boston to Bermuda - Nickeld and Dimed
Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review to Bermuda

We were very disappointed in Norwegian Cruise Line, compared to Royal Carribean, Princess, and even Carnival. They almost force you to pay extra to eat in a decent restaurant with service. Plus, they \"nickel and dime\" you to death on mandatory tips for overpriced drinks, Internet fees, and to top it off, they even charge you a fee to convert your money to gaming chips so that you can then lose it to them!
At one meal, we upgraded our included house wine to something else and they refused to deduct the price of their wine and sheepishly offered to give us a 20% discount.
Their food, rooms, and room stewards and restaurant staff were great. However, their young bar drink staff were rude and ignored you if you did not add on additional gratuities each time you ordered a drink.
I also have little confidence that they pass along the full amount of the \"default gratuities\" to their staff!

Pros: Itinerary stopping in Bermuda for 3 days
Cons: Norwegian's blatant policies to nickel and dime you to death for everything.
