Norwegian Dawn Cruise Review to Bermuda
Review summaryI liked most of the cruise. The boat is beautiful but a bit small (one pool only) but we knew that from the start. The service and the staff is amazing. The food: if you pay extra it is worth it, the MDR is also very good. Besides that it is just ok. Bermuda looks great. You do not see poverty. The houses are well maintained and colourful with nice flowers and nice curb appeal. They have a gorgeous beach called Horseshoe bay. A must see if you visit Bermuda. Hamilton is only a 20 minute ferry ride and it is worth the the trip of you like to shop. Now, my negative point have nothing to do with the boat itself. We found it to be very wavy, from the first night and through the whole cruise. Our room was in the front of the boat and we believe this is why. This made us very ill at ease and it prevented us to enjoy our time on the boat. We did not sleep well aside from when we were in port. The boat seems to pick up speed at night so nightime was worse. Only when were were on the deck pool or when we were in the middle of the boat did we not find it so bad. Then I got sick for 24h on our only full day in Bermuda so that also stopped us from visiting the island. So can tell you that Horseshoe bay is one of the most beautiful beach I have seen, the port area is very nice and has plenty to do and shops and Hamilton is nice to see. If you don't mind the waves, you might enjoy this cruise. Also think this is an older ship so there are not much activities to do besides from hanging around the pool or inside activities which we did not choose to do since we wanted to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Food and Dining
Food is excellent but the pieces of meat are cut too big. Since we only have forks, it is hard to cut our meat in smaller pieces. Also, I was a bit disapointed that our cook did not make a better show. I would have liked if he would have asked everybody to introduce themself one by one so it would have allowed us to maybe talked to the other diners at our table.
Very nice food, and the service is absolutely great. This restaurant is also well situated on the top of the ship so you have a nice view if it is daylight.
Topsiders Bar and Grill
Food is ok to good but they serve the same food everyday.
Again food is ok to good but they serve the same food everyday.
Bimini Bar And Grill
Food is ok to good but it is the same food every day.
Aqua Main Dining Room
Food is very nice, service is excellent and the decor is beautiful.
Very modern. I like the way they actually keep your pictures in your own book so you don't have to look everywhere for them. Every time they take your picture, they as you for your room number so they know where to put them. You just to get your book out when you want to have a look at them. After that they have many stations with computer screen and you can select the picture or the size you want.
Not big enough, would have like more stores. But the area is quite nicely decorated.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was great. One of the more spacious one I have ever had. The only bad comment is we were very much near the front of the boat so I think this is why it was so rocky all the time, specially at night. I would not recommend having a room near the front of the ship. We will never take such a room. Also even though the bathroom was small, there was a lot of space for clothes and our luggages. I
