The ship has festive colors surrounding you. There were 11 family members aboard with side by side cabins..We opened all the balcony dividers between us and enjoyed our evening and morning gatherings..The room service is quick and wonderful, never waited more than 10 minutes for coffee to arrive.Try the bowl of rice in the Blue Lagoon.
Look for Art Mechaud in Dazzles( a karaoke bar)great entertainer.Singers at the Java Cafe are great..Book your excursions the day you embark, they fill quickly. We were on the Western Caribbean cruise. Costa Maya, a must.Cozumel a miss(too busy ) and they don't want to lower prices like they use to..Costa Maya they did..The ships staff: Great!! The Dawn was my 7th cruise, and by far, the BEST. Love the free-style dinner, also.
