Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Ship Quality
Very pleased with maintenance and layout.
Food and Dining
Prime Rib on Saturday night was the best. Chef Salad in the Blue Lagoon was worst.
Cabin / Stateroom
Everything worked great. Adequate room for a couple.
Service and Staff
Velle, our cabin stewardess, was great. Everyone was very nice.
Really enjoyed Second City.
Onboard Activities
More on the wacky side. We are old and subdued. :(
Destinations and Excursions
We spent $$$ and had some awesome experiences.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Cozumel, Mexico
Passion Island was good. I thought shop owners were too pushy.
Belize City, Belize
Cave Tubing was awesome.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
This is a nice port. Gumbalina was very good.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Mayan Ruins were great. We did not feel safe ut I'm sure we were.


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.
