  1. Hello 2kruzers! Besides the main shows as mentioned above, there was also a comedienne, a magician, and an acrobatic show. We went to the karaoke, which was almost every night, and a Movie Sketch Comedy Show- performed by the cruise director and his staff, which was really funny. The Glow Party was on Weds. and it was held on the pool deck outside. There was usually musical entertainment in the main atrium and in some of the bars each night. Have a wonderful time!
  2. My daughter and I enjoyed the wonderful Dawn for one week on the June 22nd sailing. It was my third trip on her, and first since the refurb. I have read others reviews, so I will just add our observations. This was my first time in an inside cabin (11527) - and we found it very suitable to our needs, we had plenty of space to put everything away, hide our luggage, and never felt cramped. I left the TV on the bow cam as per others suggestions, and it worked well to be our "window" to the world when we woke up in the morning. Richard was a fantastic cruise director, and we enjoyed many of the trivia, game shows and daily events. The Glow Party was a lot of fun, and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening shows. We sailed on CAS, and the casino was very friendly- I played for 2-3 hours on my money each night (slots), without having to spend more than I wanted. For my time there, it was not too smokey, but walking through at other times, it could be quite smokey at times. We found the service to be much better in Aqua than in the Ventian Room. Ask for Romeo for your waiter- he was outstanding. We ate at Bamboo, and did not really care for the food or service there. We had the beverage package, and never really waited in line for a drink. We also found a lounger on the deck quite easily at anytime. One of our favorite spots was the Bimini Bar area, which has shelter from the sun and great drink service. We went to Disney Springs, and the excursion was well worth the money. We enjoyed the private island, rented a clamshell- which was a short walk to the restroom, bar and a little food truck type structure which had yummy lunch choices. The waiter service came around frequently for drinks on the beach, we never had to look for someone. We also took the Atlantis excursion, and I won $350 in the casino! SO, we did enjoy our trip to Atlantis-LOL. We did miss the Pearly Kings area from previous sailings- but the wine bar there is quite pretty. The ship was at full capacity- but for us we never felt crowded or that the ship was too busy. Thank you NCL Dawn for another wonderful vacation.
  3. I am in a midship inside, I did not bid on an OV, but bid $150pp for a balcony on the Dawn for this Saturday- and I was denied.
  4. Sailing this weekend, and have not been on the Dawn for several years. Thank you fo rthe updates.
  5. The touchscreens are a new addition that I did not know about. I don't think they were on the Escape on my last cruise either. Nice to use technology to reduce waiting time in lines. Can you make dinner reservations this way as well?
  6. Thank you. Yes, I do agree the ones that are open are much better- we have been lucky enough in the past to get that kind.
  7. Thank you for your response. We are leaving when you are coming back. Hope you have a wonderful cruise!
  8. Cruising on the Dawn in less than three weeks. I have rented the clamshells before, but cannot find how much they are priced at the moment. In addition, can you reserve them when you are on the ship? Thank you for your responses.
  9. My husband and I tried every drink of the day on the free package. We did not have restrictions on that- and for 7 days my husband and I were never told we could not order our initial drink choice. I drink martinis usually!
  10. Thank you everyone for your responses. Happy sailing!
  11. Good morning, I booked a cruise by using a certificate from a local casino yesterday. Is it possible to be invited into the bidding process via this booking method? It has been a while since my last cruise and was not sure how this worked. Thank you.
  12. We also had an aft balcony on the Breakaway. We really enjoyed the view and the peacefulness. Have a great cruise!
