Excellent! I'll definitely be following your adventures! I'm doing Epic in December and Symphony of the Seas in June 2018. Thanks for keeping us informed and entertained!

Edited: I've long thought that the two deck 10 non suite aft balcony cabins were probably the best value on the Dawn. They seem to book very fast!!

I say infamous because I've found quite a few posts, this one included, about aft balconies on 10 being a great deal. Who doesn't love a nice aft??

Found this thread this weekend and boy am I glad I did. I feel like I just went on a cruise. You did a great job with this review and my wife and I cant wait for the next one in July. We have our first NCL cruise booked for Feb. 2019 out of NOLA on the Gem. I believe its the same itinerary as yours. Really looking forward to it.

Awwwwww! What a sweet thing to say! You and Sue are my favorites. And I have no idea who either Of you are . Sitting at a bar in Cleveland and enjoying your review. The funny thing is I'm waiting to meet some friends at Brasa (Clevelands chiaroscuro restaurant) later tonight! Haha!

I just finished your Escape 'review' and found this one thanks to YorkVillain (who I also love reading). You really to take it to another level, and it's a great place to be!

Thanks!

Aw, thanks for the kind words! We've only been to Cleveland once (R&RHOF & Swell Season @ HOB) - but coincidentally had our single dinner at Brasa.

It's so interesting that the two of you discussed the commitment level of your cruise in this awesome Day 4 video. My bf and I have been struggling with this since booking our first ever cruise this coming September. We had decided not to commit to anything but after reading so many reviews of people having wonderful times on excursions were second guessing ourselves.

Still not sure what we will do, but it's very helpful to see that there are others out there who enjoy the ship as much as we plan to. We'll see!

Thanks again for sharing

My family got upgraded to room 12020, same as 12520, but on the starboard side. My youngest daughter really enjoyed all the pictures and cabin tour...especially the gummi bears. We leave Friday so we are in full anticipation-mode!

Just came across this thread while researching for the Dawn Thermal Spa. Was last on her in 2015 (I think). Will be on her again this October
