  1. I don't recall the name of the room where it was held. It was a large conference type room but they had it decorated beautifully. There were four huge floral arrangements atop of white pillars and speakers were on the walls for music.
  2. For our 6/1/19 Dawn cruise I had originally booked Inside Cabins (ID) 9011 and 9009. About a month before sailing I saw that prices for Balconies (BC) had dropped to the exact price I had paid for our Inside Cabins. I called NCL and asked if it would be possible to upgrade both of our cabins. I was told they would upgrade us for no charge, however I could not pick the cabins and I would keep my current Inside perk ( Free Beverages). I agreed and before we got off the phone, the NCL rep was able to give me our balcony cabin numbers 9516 and 9510. My experience with calling for the upgrade
  3. Thank you! My son was just told that he would have 4 more weeks in the walking boot, so he is a bit disappointed that he won't be playing soccer this summer. I agree that the rest of the Dawn staff is outstanding and I"m sorry to hear about your experience with the spa manager. We are still talking about what a great time we had!
  4. I couldn't remember his name, but I just checked our Vow Renewal Certificate and it was Alain Magnier, General Manager. He was a fantastic officiant! He was very kind and stayed after the ceremony to pose for pictures with us.
  5. I think it was Keshav! Great service, fun, and one heck of a memory!
  6. I couldn't agree more. Shirlyn and the entire crew really made it a special cruise for us. I wish I could remember the bartender's name in Gatsby's who quickly recognized us and our love for his Pistachio Martini's! YUM!
  7. Thank you so much for your kind words! I definitely made sure we were prepared for the weather...packed 4 sturdy umbrellas and jackets for everyone. I hoped for a nice day for Acadia National Park, and we definitely got it! My husband was sure that I had found out about the vow renewal before hand, but honestly I had no idea. I'm not sure how he did it, but it was an amazing surprise.
  8. You're welcome! Wanted to share some info since these boards have been so helpful to me!
  9. Things started out cold, foggy and rainy in Halifax. I believe it was in the 50s. We made the best of it, rented a car and drove to Peggy's Cove. The weather was better in St John but still pretty chilly. We rented a car again and drove to the sea caves. The winds were strong near the ocean. Bar Harbor was a beautiful day. Sunny and more comfortable temps. As a previous review mentioned, the fog horn on the ship was sounded on a regular basis most nights. Portland was a bit warmer, rained very early but cleared up as the day went on. Rhode Island was very foggy in the morning and we
  10. Our family of four, (husband 50, myself 49, sons 18 & 17) had a great time on this cruise! Everything was nearly perfect, with the exception of one bad incident on debarkation day. I had originally booked 2 interior cabins with the drink package and put bids in for both to try to get balcony cabins. A couple weeks before the cruise, I saw rates drop for the lowest balcony category to the same rate we paid for our interior cabins. I called to see if we could get the upgrade for no extra charge and cancel our bids. I was told we could do the upgrade over the phone at no extra charge, k
  11. Thanks so much for your review! We will be on the Dawn June 1st. Enjoyed your sail away pictures of the city and the Statue of Liberty. What deck were you on when you took those pictures? We had planned to be on the top deck for sail away, but our 17 year old son broke his foot in gym class on Friday, so I'm a little worried about the crowds. Don't want anyone accidentally stepping on his cast! Any recommendations for a good sail away location for us? We have 2 balconies on deck 9 (port side) but I would hate to miss the Statue of Liberty. Thanks!
