This was the first long distance cruise for my husband and myself. We traveled from Black Falcon Pier in Boston. We were surprised that our stateroom on the Norwegian Dawn was rather small. The balcony was not as private as we hoped since we could hear conversations from fellow passengers on both side of us. Our suite was clean. The room service was excellent. We thought that paying $12 per day per person for tips was extreme. The adult pool was much too small and very overcrowded to the point of being almost dangerous at peak times. The nightly entertainment was fun and quite good. This was the best part of the cruising experience. The restaurants were clean, efficient, and provided an abundance of delicious and well prepared food. We were disappointed with the Offshore excursions that we selected from the Cruise ship. The Bermuda Island bus tour was too long and too expensive; the Swizzler Catamaran Sunset sail lacked comfortable seating and space for the number of people on board. In contrast, we took the ferry from Heritage Wharf in Bermuda to Hamilton. We enjoyed the ride and our visit to Hamilton. The price for the ferry was $8.00 per person round trip which was fair and the seating was adequate. The staff on the Norwegian Dawn was friendly and helpful.

The bed was somewhat uncomfortable since there was a noticeable split in the middle of the bed. We believe that two small beds were put together to make one bed.

Pros: evening entertainment

Cons: the adult pool

Recommends Norwegian Dawn? Yes!
