Thinking of booking category AC on the Dawn

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of booking the penthouse (category AC) on the Dawn in March. Does anyone know how this compares to a category 11 on the Carnival Pride or category AA on the Island Princess? We just got off the Pride and are thinking of going on this cruise but we would like to have a cabin of a similar or larger size.

Dawn AC Suite:

The spacious and well-appointed accommodations set a new standard. Cabins feature cherry wood finishing, tea and coffee makers in every room, and a much larger bathroom than on other ships, containing separate WC, shower, and washstand components separated by sliding doors. This suite features a bedroom with a queen-size bed, living room, dining area, CD/DVD library, luxury bath with shower, and private balcony. Butler and concierge service available. (AC: 314 sq. ft., balcony 134 sq. ft.)

 

Carnival Pride 11 Suite:

This suite features twin beds that convert to a king-size bed, a private balcony, sitting area, dressing room with vanity, walk-in closet, wall safe, refrigerator, bathroom with tub and shower, TV with remote control, VCR, and complimentary room service. (245 - 275 sq. ft.; balcony 85 - 220 sq. ft.)

 

Island Princess AA Suite:

This suite features two twin beds that can convert to a queen-size bed, with private balcony, separate sitting room with sofa bed, walk-in closet, two TVs, music system, refrigerator, wet bar, bathroom with tub and shower, phone, and safe. (280 - 302 sq. ft. with balcony)

There is a HUGE difference in size among the ACs on the Dawn. The 2 central ones on 10 are realy well sized, with generous floor to cieling windows, the rest are actually modest in size, less window space, but bigger balconies.

 

If you go through the booking process on the NCL site, when it gives you the indivdual rooms available, you can click and get the exact dimensions, both room, and balcony.

 

Again, though, the deck 10 center ACs are the ones to get. Slighly smaller balcony, but plenty of room, and well shielded from the deck, some sun, some shade ...

TrinaLC is absolutely correct about the center ACs on deck 10. We were in 10500 on the Jewel (identical to Dawn) and it was wonderful. A huge sitting area compared to the one next door. The coffee machine is to die for.

 

Here's a link to photos of our suite.
