Review of DAWN

Sail Date: March 08, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Where to begin.  I came back with BED BUGS..... I was bitten on the ship.   NOT HAPPY.  The SPA Hydro Pool almost broke our hips because of the extremely deep steps getting into the hydro pool.  Had a charge on my card after I received the final bill which was not delivered until after they were suppose to be.  The steward brought it the day of departure.  This is so bad.  Now I have call American express to find out what it is. 

The food was fine and Noel in Agua dining was very good.  The Venetian was very pretentious and we at one dinner didn't get waited on until I asked if anyone was going to do it.  The coffee was horrible through out the trip.  The bacon was raw.  Not good

Our cabin Steward was very pleasant and efficient  Samson.

There was only one outlet in the stateroom across from the bed so my CPAP cord had to be draped across the room on the floor which was very dangerous.

The bathroom had two narrow door to the toilet and shower so anyone of size would have difficulty

The Venetian dining room was not easy to get into cause of the stairs   The Aqua was very good

Ship Quality
Too narrow bath rooms BEDBUGS bad hydro pool The seats in the Stardust horrible
Food and Dining

Service and Staff
Samson the steward was good Noel the waiter was good Others just ok
Shows were ok
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Tendering in Belize was horrible and dangerous
Cabin / Stateroom
Very small. Only on electrical outlet in the room across from beds. So if you have a CPAP you need an extension cord strung across room.

New Orleans, Louisiana
Cozumel, Mexico
Cooking class was fun.
Belize City, Belize
Tender was dangerous. Trip to ECO Jungle not worth the money
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Enjoyed this one. Cameo factory worth seeing. Just Wanted to stay there longer
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Manager of Diamond Cesar was very helpful to me.


The balcony room was very small Getting Venetian Dining room was hard with all the stairs. Don't pay a price for the Hydro Pool in the SPA as you will break a hip getting into it.
