I at long last and after numerous posts to you all asking loads of questions have booked my cruise for Jan 2002, I went for the 14 nights on the Dawn Princess southern caribbean leaving Jan 12th. Thank you all so much for all your help and advice over the last couple of weeks now i've just got to sit back and wait, thank you all again.
The Dawn was our first, and is our favorite ship so far. Sorry that Capt. Bernie Warner is going to the Golden Princess as he created a friendly, professional, and fun atmosphere for his staff crew and passengers. The ship is good one and you will have a ball. We are booked for our fifth Princess cruise in 3 1/2 years so I guess you could say, the Dawn was at least partially responsible for our current addiction. Start enjoying your cruise now! Anticipation is half the fun!
