Norwegian Dawn - Introduction

Originally built for Star Cruises, the Norwegian Dawn was built in 2002 at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. It was decided during construction that the ship would instead go to the company's subsidiary, the Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), and later that year it was christened by Kim Cattrall in New York City.  The Dawn is one of two ships to be built to its specifications and its sister is the Norwegian Star. NCL ships are known for their elaborate hull paintings and the Dawn was the first vessel to carry this artwork - it features multi-coloured ribbons flowing along the front half of the ship. The starboard side has two leaping dolphins, while port has the Statue of Liberty. A substantial refurbishment project was carried out in early 2011, giving much of the ship a makeover, updating the decor and adding some new features.  During the summer, the vessel is typically based in Boston, Massachusetts, and offers seven-night voyages to Bermuda. It's based in Miami during the winter and tours the Caribbean, stopping at destinations like St Maarten, Antigua, Barbados and Tortola.  One-off voyages are also sometimes available, such as autumn cruises along the east coast of America and Canada - an ideal way to see the spectacular displays of colour as the leaves change.
