Are you considering a Bermuda cruise out of the northeast this year? Your timing couldn’t be better because the Norwegian Dawn has just returned to the city of Boston after a month long refurb and let me tell you, she’s looking GREAT! This was by no means a quick cosmetic face-lift. The ship was actually brought down to the steel in many places and rebuilt!
What I love most about Norwegian Cruise Line is the many dining choices and two new restaurants were added to the Dawn. O’Sheehans’s Bar & Grill has been added…every NCL ship should have O’Sheehans! It’s great pub food and open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night snacks. The second restaurant is a new-to-the-fleet, upscale Mexican restaurant called Los Lobos Cantina.
While on the Norwegian Escape I discovered The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar. The atmosphere there is lovely and I enjoyed spending time there, trying new wines. On the Dawn, this new addition takes the place of the Pearly King Pub. If wine is not your drink of choice maybe mojitos are. The new Sugarcane Mojito Bar will serve up more than 15 varieties! Lastly, Spinnaker Lounge was transformed into the Bliss Lounge.
Extensive renovations were made to all the other restaurants, bars, the Atrium and staterooms giving the entire ship an upscale, contemporary look. If you’ve cruised on the Norwegian Dawn before, you’ll hardly recognize her! If it’s your first time sailing on the Dawn, you’re in for an incredible journey on one of the loveliest cruise ships afloat!
