Room Type: Suite

Think cruise - think quiet spots to read or activities. The Dawn specialized in neither. We could not find a quiet space to drink either coffee or real drinks and just hang out and talk comfortably. The activities were few and far between. Although there was a fun crowd for the daily game shows. Art auctioneer was not as good as others I've seen - not as knowledgeable. 

The rooms were really nice and well kept.

Food had less choices than other cruises we'd been on, and service in the main restaurants was really slow. 

All said, being on a ship (other than the last 20 hours where the turbulence in the Caribbean was worse than we have seen on any other cruise) is going to be relaxing and getting away is always good.

Wonderful with a sitting area and large spaces for a ship.

Service and Staff
Butler was wonderful as was the room steward. The bartenders were hit or miss and the dining staff was extremely slow and often did not even greet us.
