Like any other cruise line, each sailin is differrent. We liked FreeStyle more than we thought we would. The Earlier one ate on our sailing the better. We ate about 8 -9 each evening, did have to wait, but never too long. Food is great, service is slow. Beautiful ship, layout like most newer 90,000 ton ships. Cabins size just OK. Very casual, lots of teens and kids. Lots of families. No real need to dress up, but we did. I don't like the ports of call from NY, would rather fly to Fla. and board a ship there. Better ports etc. Would rather sail NCL's Norway, you can get a suite at a cheap rate. Dawn is nice ship but again who wants to sail from NY to Miami?
