Default DAWN-BERMUDA/BAHAMAS

I JUST CAME BACK. I WAS ON THE 5/12-5/19. FIRST TIME ON DAWN.
IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ON THIS SHIP - MAY I GIVE SUGGESTIONS?
FIRST OFF- CAGNEYS STEAK HOUSE - $20.00 PER PERSON - GO LATER AT NIGHT- IT'S A TWO FOR ONE DEAL.....
THE TEX/MEX PLACE - FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! NO CHARGE. YUM!
I DIDN'T EAT AT THE OTHER SPECIALTY RESTAURANTS. I DIDN'T LIKE WHAT I SAW ON THE MENU BUT THE REST. ARE BEAUTIFUL.
BRING NICE DINNER WEAR- PANTS FOR THE GUYS - DRESSES FOR THE LADIES. THEY WON'T LET YOU IN WEARING SHORTS...THEY ARE STRICT ON THAT!!!!! THESE PEOPLE DO GET DRESSED UP!!!!!!

THE CASINO- IF YOUR INTO SLOTS- PLAY THE MONEY STORM - IT'S A PENNY MACHINE - AND PLAY MAXIMUM AMOUNT ( I THINK IT'S A DOLLAR). TWO MACHINES OVER IS THE LOBSTER ONE (NOT SURE WHAT IT'S CALLED) THAT PAID WELL TOO. UNCLE SAM I PLAYED -NOT TOO BAD EITHER.
I PLAYED A LOT OF THE SLOTS - NOT MUCH PAYOUT.

BAHAMAS- MY HONEY & I WALKED RIGHT INTO ATLANTIS AND WE DIDN'T PAY ANYTHING. WE DID THE ENTIRE OUTSIDE & INSIDE. IF WE SAW ANYONE OUTSIDE, WE JUST PUT OUR HANDS IN OUR POCKETS AND TRIED TO HIDE THE FACT THAT WE WERE NOT WEARING A BRACELET. NO ONE STOPPED US OR BOTHERED US. IT'S HUGE!!!!!!
CASINO IS NICE TOO... CAN YOU TELL I LIKE TO GAMBLE?
THAT'S ALL WE DID.

BERMUDA - WE DID THE SNUBA (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH SCUBA) TOUR. THEY PICK YOU UP RIGHT THERE AND OFF YOU GO- THEY GAVE US WETSUITS CAUSE THE WATER WAS FRIGID. I HAVE BEEN SCUBA DIVING AND I LIKE TO SNORKEL AS WELL- I LOVE WATER. - THEY PUT YOU IN ABOUT 10 FEET OF WATER. CRYSTAL CLEAR!!!!!!! THEY GIVE YOU THE SCUBA DIVING MOUTH PIECE AS WELL AS THE FACE MASK AND PUT A WEIGHT BELT ON YOU. THE MOUTH PIECE HAS A HOUSE ATTACHED WHICH GOES UP TO THE TOP OF THE WATER WHERE YOUR OXYGEN TANK IS SITTING IN A LITTLE RAFT FOLLOWING YOU ALONG. I LIKED IT. SHORT- 20 MINUTES IN THE WATER. BUT GOOD. AFTER YOU CAN SUN BATH OR WALK AROUND. WE TOOK THE TAXI BACK - SHOWERED ON THE BOAT AND THEN WE TOOK THE BUS TO A BEACH TO PICK UP THE "PINK" SAND. TOOK MORE PICS. JUMPED BACK ON ANOTHER BUS.
THE BUS RIDE COSTS ABOUT $10.00 PER PERSON ROUNDTRIP I THINK.
DEAR GOD- YOU BETTER HOLD ON!!!!!!!! OUR DRIVER SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES EVERY FOUR SECONDS.
I TOOK A ZIPLOCK BAG WITH ME AND FILLED IT W/SAND. THEN I BROUGHT IT HOME AND PUT IT INTO A LAMP. IT'S PRETTY. BEATS THE HECK OUT OF OUR NASTY CONNECTICUT SAND!!!

THE SHOWS ON THE SHIP ARE AWESOME! WE HAD A JUGGLER -A FAMOUS GUY 9TH GENERATION JUGGLER- NOT TOO BAD LOOKING EITHER. LOVES TO BE HASSELED!!!!

WE ALSO HAD A HYPNOTIST NAMED TIM SOMETHING OR OTHER. HE WAS GOOD- DON'T MISS HIS SHOW- GET SEATS FACING THE STAGE VS. THE SIDE. YOU NEED TO SEE THE EXPRESSIONS ON THE PEOPLE'S FACES WHEN HE MAKES THEM DO SILLY THINGS. IT'S HYSTERICAL!!!!

THE DANCER'S WERE GREAT ALSO! OLGA & ANTON- BOTH FROM SPAIN - WERE THE FLAMINGO DANCERS/ HOLY COW HE MAKES HER LOOK GOOD! DON'T GET ME WRONG SHE IS FANTASTIC ON HER OWN, BUT MAN HE MAKES HER EVEN BETTER. I HAVE A CRUSH ON HIM....

FOOD- EH TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.
ROOMS- SMALL BUT THEY GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
CABIN STEWARDS- FANTASTIC!!!!
CREW OVERALL - AMAZING PEOPLE!!!

I PERSONALLY THOUGHT FREESTYLE WOULD BE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TIME I GET HUNGRY. IT CHANGES DAY TO DAY, BUT THEY WANT YOU TO BASICALLY RESERVE YOUR RESTAURANT TIMES AS SOON AS YOU GET ON THE SHIP - GO TO DECK 7 MID SHIP.
YOU CAN ALSO BOOK YOUR EXCURSIONS RIGHT THERE AS WELL.

ANYWAY, I HAD A GREAT TIME AND I HOPE YOU DO TOO. GOOD LUCK WITH THE WEATHER- AND IF YOUR LEAVING OUT OF NYC, BRING A SWEATER. MY HONEY SCOFFED WHEN I TOLD HIM TO PACK ONE AND BOY DID HE NEED IT!!!!!!

I HOPE MY TIPS HELPED YOU OUT.
