I was on the Dawn Feb 18 - March 1. Trust me the Dan has not been to Norfolk this year. We had a minor change in itinerary adding San Juan and dropping Gernada. Great cruise. The current problem effects one of 4 engines reducing cruising speed to 22 knots from 24 knots so requiring a slightly shorter route to stay ontime.
We hit all the ports on the refised intinerary ontime and returned to NYC early allowing those waiting to board ontime.
There was one cruise last year that the Dawn ended up in Norfolk due to storms off NC and an electonics problem. Fixed by the next cruise.
