Norwegian Dawn Repo Baby !Ā    Leave a comment

Fourteen glorious days on  board the Norwegian Dawn.   Heaven!  

Boarding in Boston went smoothly enough.  We arrived around 11:00 in the morning.  Before you approached security, you were instructed to get rid of your liquids.  Security didn’t seem to care as much.  šŸ˜‰ Not saying that you  could bring on a case of water, but a bottle or two may not be of issue.  

Once through security we checked in and were escorted to the concierge lounge.  They were boarding at this point, so we were escorted on to the ship quickly.  

For perhaps the third time ever, the butler escorted us to our suite.  Not necessary  but nice!  For the first time in 30 + cruises you were encouraged to drop your carry-on bags in your stateroom even though the rooms weren’t ready.  

We spent the afternoon exploring the newly refurbished ship.  They obviously spent a fare amount on her.  She looks brand new!  


The only thing that didn’t cooperate this first day was the weather.  Windy and rainy.  Actually it was so windy the tug actually had to help us pivot when we pushed away from the pier!

We kept things casual with a quick dinner at the buffet.  Looking forward to.three sea days coming up!
