Dawn - Live 11/27

Recommended Posts

15ffdfebb6e4dd754d8506f4b1362f0e.jpg

 

6am flights are more attractive at the time of booking. We're off to the Big Easy, and then boarding the Dawn on Sunday. This is a special trip for us - returning to the ship that introduced us to NCL back in 2010.

 

More to come. Posting live from the Dawn 11/27.

Make sure you try the made-at-table guacamole at Los Lobos. The food there is great.

DITTO this!!!!!!!! Just came off the 9-day that left on Veterans Day. Went to Los Lobos twice for their guacamole and didn't even have the UDP. Tried guacamole two different places in Mexico and the ships was by far the BEST! Even hubby ate it and he's normally only a salsa guy. Enjoy!!!!!

Layover in Atlanta. Just called upsell and nabbed an SD Family Suite with Large Balcony - room 12520. Not a bad way to start!

 

As far as the guac - we're all over that. Reservations for Los Lobos Monday night.

Yes! Another DT live review. Wishing you happy sails. You're going to my hometown New Orleans. Stop by to get coffee and beignets at Cafe Du Monde and the best BBQ oysters at Drago's in the Hilton near Riverwalk.

We can't wait to meet Cyndi! We feel like this is her ship, and we're just visiting for the week.

Looking forward to your Live From, enjoy your time in NO before you board on Sunday. :)

Wish I could find some updated pics of the aft facing suites. I would like to see how the cabins have changed in decor since the remodel.

Yep... a first for us. We hear nothing but great things.

 

About to depart Atlanta... scheduled to touch down in New Orleans in about an hour. I haven't been in 10+ years, and this will be Sue's first visit. Preservation Hall and Pat O'Briens tonight.

We did the repo on the Dawn from Boston to NOLA. It was our first time to NOLA and to say the least it was interesting! We did the same show, it was fabulous.

Enjoy the Dawn!

Don't know what to say... it all seems cliche. What an amazing show.

In search of food. Probably not the street for it. May go find oysters down Iberville.

We're in line for the oyster joint that doesn't have a line.

So we can laugh at the people across the street that are waiting in line for the joint that does have a line.
