New for 2011: Norwegian Dawn Sails from Boston to Bermuda!

We applaud Norwegian Cruise Lines on their decision to bring the Norwegian Dawn into Boston for their sailings from Boston’s Black Falcon Terminal to King’s Wharf, Bermuda. The Dawn, who has called New York her Summer home since 2002, will replace the current Norwegian Spirit, making the weekly Boston to Bermuda voyage every Friday in 2011, from May to October. The Dawn brings with her some of the finer amenities found on cruise ships today. Weighing in at 91,740 tons and 971 feet long, the Dawn has a passenger capacity of 2,224, with a variety of stateroom options from interior, to ocean view window, balconies, and suites to suit everyone’s needs or desires.

Onboard, you will find plenty of activities for all. For the little ones, the Dawn provides the T-Rex Kids Center & Pool – a Dinosaur theme playland and splash area. Teens have their own special hang out area at the Teen Club, with foosball, air hockey, video games, music, and more. As evening falls, this area provides teens with their own disco lounge. Family time on the Dawn can be spent by the pool, shooting hoops on the basketball court, or perhaps taking in a movie at the onboard theater, featuring the newest releases. For the adult crowd, take in a top notch show at the Stardust Theater, get in on the action at the Dawn Club Casino, a work out at the El Dorado Fitness Center, or do a little shopping in the Galleria, where you will also find a wine cellar for tasting and sales, and Havana’s premium cigar lounge. Looking for a bit of quiet time and relaxation? The Dawn has it! Library & Reading rooms, Internet Cafe, Game Room, Card Room, or for a bit of pampering, visit the fabulous El Dorado Spa!

Meals onboard the Norwegian Dawn are a gastronomical smorgasbord!  With Norwegian’s exclusive “Freestyle Dining” the choices are endless! Light fare is the feature at the Garden Cafe. For fine dining, the variety of foods vary from the great Cagney’s Steakhouse, to Impressions Italian, Le Bistro French, Salsas Tapas, and the Bamboo Restaurant, where you will find Asian delights such as Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Sushi, Sashimi and even a Tepanyaki room! Of course, there is also the traditional dining in the Venetian Dining Room, poolside Bimini Grill, or the 24 hour Blue Lagoon Food Court. So many choices!

ABC Travel has available cabins for May 13 and September 23, 2011 at some very good rates PLUS we’ll give you $50 to spend however you’d like while on board!

Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas

If you haven’t heard about the Oasis of the Seas, you’re not alone.  In the cruising industry though, Royal Caribbean’s latest effort is the largest news in years.

Or more specifically — the largest ship.

The Oasis of the Seas is more of a floating city than it is an actual cruise ship.  Once the ship building process is completed, Oasis will feature:

  • shopping mall
  • numerous bars and restaurants
  • outdoor amphitheatre (see photo, below)
  • rock-climbing walls

…of course, Royal Caribbean knows how to pull these and so many other amenities off with style, class and luxury.

We’ll know more as thew ship’s build continues.  For now though we do know that the ship will be based out of Florida and will set sail with it’s first load of passengers in late 2009.

Stay tuned, and if you’re interested in being onboard this historical sailing – call us immediately so that we can try to reserve your space.
