The Dawn was our first cruise, to Alaska. This is the ship that turned me into an immediate cruise addict. Captain Bernie and Staff made us feel like royalty and almost every aspect of the cruise was magical.
After reading your post, I know that we will have to try the Sea Princess ,as well as the Ocean and Pacific. We are booked on the Crown 9/14/00, and have cruised on the Sun and Grand. The Dawn is our favorite thus far. Our favorite itinerary has been the Grand Med. WOW!
Take care and good cruising.
