Old Dawn

Sail Date: February 01, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

This is one of the smaller ships. I did 3 back to back and I had to completely depart and wait and then reboard for next cruise which was a big time waster. Other than that. Many places to dine. Buffets were good. Needed better salad bar and variety of veggies to eat.  Plenty to do in all the ports.Only 1 pool to use on the ship. Other one was in the spa and cost extra to use.Seemed  to have nice childcare area with separate slides and hot tub on back of ship. Nice gym area. Usual entertainment. Didnt feel pressured to buy alcohol. Did have lots of early afternoon drunks with their use of all you can drink alcohol . Plenty of patrons were getting their monies worth...
