The Norwegian Dawn cruised into her new seasonal homeport of Boston last week sporting a new look! A multi-million dollar refurbishment has left her shiny new with lots of great enhancements. Things were shifted around quite a bit; so much so that there was room to add 58 additional suites and staterooms! It’s always nice to see more family staterooms that will hold up to six guests and the Dawn will now have 24 and 10 of those will have balconies.
All staterooms were upgraded with flat screen televisions, which saves a bit a space and gives the room a cleaner look. I was impressed that they did the same for the crew!
For those of you fortunate enough to have already cruised the Norwegian Epic, you may remember the Brazilian steakhouse, Moderno Churrascaria. Guests loved this restaurant so much that it is being added to ships when they go into dry dock and its now a dining option on the Dawn! Passadors serve skewers of all kinds of meat tableside, and the large self-serve salad bar contains sides and fixin’s.
The casino, probably one of the busiest spots on the ship was totally redone. A more functional layout, new furniture and new carpet were part of the renovation.
Both the Kid’s Crew area and Teen Club got a new look. It’s so important to have a segregated and age appropriate look to a child’s space! It’s hard to get teens to hang out in a spot that’s not as “cool” as they are! New game systems were also added. A room dedicated to little cruisers, The Under 2 Zoo, was added. Here parents and their children have a special place to play together.
So, lucky you if you have an upcoming cruise on the Norwegian Dawn! I thought she was a pretty special ship before her upgrades, but now she’s even better!"
