Excellent cruise to Bermuda!  Great food and entertainment, something for everyone.  I highly recommend this cruise, excellent value for the price as well.

Food and Dining
food was excellent and fresh, many options to choose from. breakfasts choices included on the spot prepared omelets, eggs benedict, smoked salmon, cream cheese and bagels, excellent assortment of breads, muffins and an assortment of fruits, hot and cold cereals. i chose fish as my main course for several dinners and was astonished that every time the fish was cooked perfectly, tender and moist, not overcooked and dried out. the vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, etc) were also well cooked, not overcooked at all. good selection of salad bar options were also available. desserts were delicious too! they even had a hand made and filled crepe station. every night there was a special in the sit down dining rooms which was very good.
Service and Staff
NCL has improved the onboard entertainment since I last cruised with them. Similar to Cirque de Soleil shows!! Very enjoyable. Also the Second City troupe was very funny!
Onboard Activities
My only recommendation is that although Norwegian Cruise Line does offer some exercise classes, they could offer them more frequently over the course of the cruise. Zumba was offered only twice and several of the workouts and stretching classes are offered at 7am, a little early for many people. Also, because the Zumba classes were so popular, the venue it was held in was too crowded with big chairs and cocktail tables so that many people could not see or hear what the instructor was doing.

Ship Quality
Embarkation and Disembarkation
embarkation was very efficient, especially now that we are required to enter a 30 minute time window of when we will arrive to embark, good system! however, disembarkation from every cruise ship i have been on is a slow process involving long lines. disembarkation from the norwegian dawn was no exception. there is one person taking the customs form, creating "disney" like long snaking lines. this is not norwegian's issue, i'm not sure what department would be responsible for this inefficient system but it has not changed in over 20 years.
