This was my 15th cruise.  The Dawn is a smaller ship so it was very easy to get around. The staff is great! The storage space in the outside cabin that we had was very good. In fact it was probably the most space I have had on any cruise. The cabin itself was very small but adequate for our needs and very clean. Our cabin steward did an excellent job. The entertainment was very good. The magician was unbelevable!!!!! The production shows and the comedian were great. The food was only so-so. It lacked flavor and was sometimes undercooked for our taste. The best item on the menus was the prime rib. The salad bar selections in the Garden Cafe were good also. We enjoyed the Brazilian Restaurant very much. We only did one shore excursion because I have been to Bermuda 11 times previously and know the island well. The glass bottom boat was a nice trip and the captain did a great job entertaining us. I don't think we would sail on the Dawn again. We did have a nice time but we found that we prefer a bigger, newer ship than the Dawn. The food was really the biggest disappointment on the cruise. Everything else was good.
