Review summary

If you are used to the Breakaway, you will not like this ship. I, for one, will never sail Dawn or any ship from that category. Only the shows in the theater made this trip not a complete flop

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Only the Vinition restaurant was worth eating in. All the specialty restaurants were not worth paying for, if you were to pay for and not as a perk. They lacked atmosphere, they were no special at all!

Onboard Activities

Not much to do on this ship. Only one pool and very crowded. So is the whole area around the pool.
