Wife and I enjoyed our cruise.  The ship is very good.  Our room stewardess was great.  We found the food to be very good with very good service on all but one occasion.  Our oceanview stateroom had adequate space.  Being our first Caribbean cruise, our shore excursions of cave-tubing, beach day, Mayan ruins, and animal sanctuary were delightful.  Nightly shoes were good.  We most enjoyed Second City comics.  We went to both the 7pm and 9pm show which were slightly different because of the improve.

Prime Rib on Saturday night was the best. Chef Salad in the Blue Lagoon was worst.

More on the wacky side. We are old and subdued. :(

Everything worked great. Adequate room for a couple.

Ship Tip

If you are used to a forward Crow's Nest on HAL or the equivalent on other lines, Dawn doesn't have such a room that we found. The menus are the same in Venetian and Aqua dining rooms.

Passion Island was good. I thought shop owners were too pushy.

Mayan Ruins were great. We did not feel safe ut I'm sure we were.
