Nice Ship, Love the Spa, makes me feel like there are only 10 people on the cruise with me.  Loved the fitness Center, so big, and so much to offer.

So many choices in restaurants, bars, & lounges.  So many choices every night for entertainment.  Such a variety of entertainment, something for Everyone.  And if nothing is what you like to do, that was available, too! 

I have been on other cruises, where you can barely find something you like to do at night.  All entertainers were top notch.  I definitely had to pick and choose what I did at night, you couldn't possible get it all in!

Very friendly, happy staff members.  All bartenders and waiters were so personable.

I do not usually go to the specialty restaurants.  I find that there are so many choices included in the cruise, that I don't have a need to, but if you really loved restaurants and food, there are so many on board to chose from.  I found all the food to be excellent, we ate lunch, dinner, and some breakfasts in the main dining rooms.  Some Breakfasts & lunches in the Blue Lagoon.  Only ate in the Garden Cafe' once.  Except when I had the Free Soft Serve Ice Cream!

Service at all the bars was excellent & I enjoyed all the drinks.  The Ultimate Beverage Package was fantastic!  A very good deal! as it was free with our cabin.

Cabins are a good size, always clean, tons of space to put your stuff!  I found the beds comfortable.  I had a Port Hole Cabin on deck 4. Cabin attendants are also very friendly, always available, and always checking to make sure everything is perfect in the cabin for you.

Love our time in Bermuda.  Lots of time.  Have a plan for the day you arrive, so you can get some nice time on the island, you can get full use of your three days. 

The sea days I spend in the Spa if it is cool outside or rainy, as I sailed early May.  On the last sea day it was sunny & warm and I spent it outside on deck.  I love both.  It really depends if you like to be amongst the people or quiet, by yourself.

I love Bermuda in May.  I usually hit nice weather in the 70's to low 80's. There is great snorkeling and relaxing on beaches, and lots of great sights to see.  There are few children on-board in May, Mostly adults, all ages.  There are young & old, 20's, 30's,40's, 50's and Older.

I live in MA, so with The Port of Boston, there is no flying, making the cruise so much more affordable.  You still have to consider how you are getting to and from the port and those extra expenses, but no airfare!

Going on her again for the repositioning in October 2016, can't wait!

My favorite thing about the Dawn is the Spa. Love the big pool, relaxing chaises, and hot tubs, and limited amount of people there. Makes you feel like you are cruising with 10 people instead of 2000+
