This will be my first cruise. I am excited. I am going with my son (1yr ) and hubby. Anyone take the Bahamas, Bermuda itinerary? Any comments, tips, suggestions would be highly appreciated.

pk-You will love the Dawn, she is a beautiful ship with a really nice crew. We sailed on the Dawn in early Dec. 06 to the Eastern Caribbean.The specialty restaurants are great and it is good to make your reservations as soon after boarding as possible-however, if you are flexible as to time you should not run into any problems if you decide to make reservations at a later date!The ship is family friendly and in great shape. After many cruises on other cruise lines we were favorably impressed with the Dawn-so much so that we reserved another cruise with NCL aboard the new Gem. An unusually large number of our fellow shipmates did the same. Look into the NCL Cruise Rewards Program while aboard-it allows reserving a future cruise for $250.00-and gives you a cruise credit of $100.00 during your present cruise! Shawn Adair is the NCL Cruise consultant aboard-say Hi to him for me-he is fantastic!

Bon Voyage,

Just back Quick Review..

Pros- Freestyle cruising, Great Value for the price, Choice of restaurents food was generally good Cagneys,public rooms and shows.Staff was excellent.Nice clean ship with great layout(never got lost)lots of activity choices.

Cons-could definitly improve on embarkation process.info on sea conditions not up to date.Smoking...Would pass on private island, Casino and bingo.

Summary: This is our third cruise,two previous with Carnival. NCL has a bit more class,not the party animal croud.I was impressed with the service.We learned from past experience to book our shore excursions beforehand on-line,saved a bundle and new what to expect. Would cruise with NCL again.
Highlites of shore trips-
Cosumel- Took taxi to paradise beach-good choice
Belize- Regies Cave tubing-Excellent!
Roatan-Theris Dixon tour Enri-best guide nicest beach!
Grand Cayman- Capt. Marvin stingray city and snorkel must experiance
Ocho Rios- walked to Margaritaville beach and lobster Daves A-1

Thanks to eveyone again on this wonderfull site for all the invaluable help before sailing!Dave.Tom..
I will be happy to answer any questions or hear any opinions.
