From beginning to end there was always something to do, something to eat, somewhere to party and somewhere to rest. Can never get bored. We stayed on level 10 in the middle. We did not have a bad meal anywhere on the boat. The buffet was pretty damn good. The sit down restaurants were all excellent. Entertainment is everywhere at... More

Well, this was my very first cruise, I was someone’s guest, and shared a cabin with a preteen. Our cabin was a handicap room so it was a little larger than others—our other traveling companions had some mobility issues, hence the handicap/disabled cabin. The NCL info says this cabin can sleep 4---three was plenty (when the other minor could not... More

This was my first cruise experience and I was very excited to be heading to Bermuda. With that being said, first Bermuda is amazing. The water is beautiful and the locals are generous and nice. I highly recommend the shipwreck snorkel with Kevin. You'll have a good time and plenty of rum swizzles! When you are in Bermuda make sure... More

lots of small cruise boats are at the Harbor area and are not that expensive to have a nice cruise and relax while seeing the Isands and Boston skyline,Logan Airport,etc..Boats are clean and narrated so you know what you are seeing. some stop at the Islands which is a great part of the trip.

Loved the trip. Had an inside cabin with a toddler. A little tight but it worked. Going in October 2016 but this time a SJ category suit for my wife's 50th birthday. We loved Bermuda. Wonderful weather great people and a lot of Bermuda shorts and heels on scooters. Can see this being a regular on my vacation list.

Fabulous cruise, incredible vacation to Bermuda. I can't say enough good things about the Norwegian Dawn Cruise from Boston to Bermude from Sept 4-11, 2015. We stayed in room 11050, a two-bedroom suite. We had amazing service from Manolito our butler. The ship was outstanding, lots to do at all times and the staff was incredible. Highly recommend this cruise.

Please understand that this is not a luxury cruise, but that being said it is a good take. There are a few negatives mostly because of the size of the ship....mainly the crowds at the pool (they should have 2) and the cafeteria like garden cafe. We were in a suite that gave us some extra privileges such as priority... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
