If Stefs mom really feels this way I feel sorry for her. How horrible it must be to be so unhappy all the time. I have been on 4 regular cruises and many cruises to Nowhere and have enjoyed every one of them. The Dawn is a beautiful ship and the workers were wonderful. The food was great. I am sorry for her. I guess the glass will always be 1/2 empty to her.
We are going on the Dawn again on May 23rd and are sure it will be wonderful. NCL has always been great. We also loved Carnival and Premier. I don't think a cruise could ever be bad.
