Okay, not great

Sail Date: September 02, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The service staff is efficient and always very pleasant. The ship has only one pool which is an absurd size for the number of passengers.  There are a lot of chairs overlooking the pool area but only 10 lounge chairs total (that's not a misprint) on the promenade deck for those wanting to get into some shade. Food flavors mostly okay in buffet area and dining room.  However, in both locations hot food was at best lukewarm. Freestyle is a great concept except that there is no threshold enforced in the dining room when suggested resort  casual morphs into beach wear, workout clothes, etc. Production shows in the theater not good. Disembarkation procesure in Boston much better than embarkation.

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin size was a disappointment in relation to what is designated a mini suite on other cruise lines.

Don't sail on the Dawn if you like to use a pool or hot tub.
