After spending the day around NYC we arrived at the Cruise Port early and boarded very quickly actually. It was a very smooth prcoess and before we even had a moment to get overly excited we were climbing the gangway to the beautiful Norwegian Dawn that awaited us.
Walking in we could not believe how beautiful and majestic it was. We knew instantly we were going to have a great time. We found our room on the 10th floor - #10605. It was a simple inside cabin but we loved it still. It was cozy and the beds were super duper comfy.
After dropping off our things we headed to the buffet for our first meal on board. We loved sitting and having our meals next to the windows looking out into the port we were in or the wide span of Ocean before us. After having some lunch we headed out to the pool deck and around for some photos of NYC from the ship while waiting for Bon Voyage.
We sat up on the top deck enjoying the views of NYC and then made our way down to one of the lower decks with our delicious drinks in hand to wave goodbye to NYC and get ready for the fun ahead.
We found a couple seats and enjoyed seeing the city from the ship as it passed between Manhatten and New Jersey. Soon we were passing by the Statue of Liberty and snapping pics like crazy! Then it was time for the fun to really begin!
They were having a HUGE BBQ on the pool deck. We were sad we had just waisted our appetite on the buffet upstairs but still managed to partake of a few bites of the delicious food they had prepared. YUM! Music was playing, people were dancing, some were swimming and enjoying the hot tub already. (Notice the average age group )
The rest of the evening was spent exploring the ship, taking photos and making our way around the differant shows that were starting. The adventure had begun!
