We are on the Dawn once again in 2 weeks...Last year was an amazing cruise with our children and grandson. We beat the hurricane out to sea and never felt any of the effects...great speed... We are already booked for 2013 and will be anxious to find out which ship will be here in 2014.
I think when the new ship is completed that the Epic may stay in NYC during the summer and the Gem will be moved to Boston. We have been on the Gem twice and it is a lovely ship definately larger and a bit busier compared to the Dawn. We have aft penthouses on the Dawn and love this location.
Have sailed on the Spirit/ Dawn and Gem... really like the Great Outdoors and Spinnakers on Deck 13 on the Gem ....we were looking at sailing the Celebrity Summit but would not even consider it if the Gem were available from Boston....
