The Dawn is a great smaller ship. There is loads of things to do. If you are looking for a cruise that is closer to a smaller ship than a bigger one like the Epic then this ship is for you.

You have to tender to the ship if you are not at the Dock. At port there’s not to do besides shop if you don’t have an shore excursions. If you choose to do shopping all you need at most Is half of the day as it won’t take you long to go through all the shores you want to go through.

Easy walk off and on. You want really need an shore excursion for this port as there is loads of free things to do. My favourite is the swim up pool bar

Tampa, Florida

When you disembark it takes longer as this is a smaller port then others like Port of Canaveral Orlando

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
