Shadowmeboy's Norwegian Dawn Canada/New England Pictorial Review

Recommended Posts

Thank you for your wonderful review. I truly want to do a Canada/New England cruise and your review gave me a great idea about what to expect!

 

I've been wanting to go to the September 11th memorial in New York. I live near the Pentagon and have been to the one there. I've also been to the one in Shanksville, PA when I visited friends in the area. Both are very nicely done.

You are welcome! Thank you for reading it.

 

Susan wants to go to DC sometime so we will have to see if we can see it when we eventually get there.

Off subject a little....

 

I just did the memorial yesterday and it’s very well done. Spent about 3 hours there and could have spent another 2. Very authentic and informative. The museum takes you through every aspect of the WTC and the events leading up to and including 9/11. Once you enter into the area of that day, it walks you through as it was happening. It’s a lot to absorb.

 Yes, but impactful.

   Will you be continuing to post on  this thread about your Alaska cruise that begins today 9/22 , or will you be posting your experiences under a new title?

I would like to read about an Alaskan cruise in the later part of the season and see some beautiful photos. Possibly snow on the mountains ?

Bon Voyage !

I know! It only took 3 months of nagging, I mean convincing!

 

I can’t wait. Plus I want to try Q again. Hopefully it’s better this time. 

 

I have 5 nights of specialty dining - 3 sdp and 2 platinum certs.

plan is los lobos x2, Cagney’s, La Cucina, and Q.

I've been looking at the Dawn, but my biggest concern (we always travel with our kids (16,15,10) -- how would you compare Bliss V Dawn when it comes to ship activities and entertainment? Thanks for great review! I love the New England/Canada itinerary!

How was your solo Alaskan cruise????

 

Loved it and the weather was spectacular for late September. I had better weather than June 2018. only thing I really hated was eating alone at meals.

The dawn is a great ship. I enjoy the smaller ships for faster disembarking in ports and not feeling like your in a cattle drive. Elevators are easier to catch, etc. All the things that are problems on a big ship, due to the crowds. What you don't have are the Go-carts, laser tag, water slides that the Bliss has. If you have a port intensive cruise then you might not miss it as much. It comes down to what does your family want with your kids being 16, 15, and 10? It will take a little adjusting, but there are still tons of activities on a smaller ship like the dawn, just not as many as the larger ships. 

 

I also like you don't have to have reservations for all the shows. Gameshows are easier to watch because they are done in a lounge not the atrium. I think it easier to get dining reservations at specialties as well. They have production shows, but they aren't going to be fresh off Broadway like the mega ships. Hope that helps!

I am working with pictures still. I took a ton being up in Alaska, but I am getting closer. 
 

I am finishing up the vlogs from the Southwest trip we took, while writing this review. Goal is to be into the review by next week.
