Got off of the Dream, reluctantly, on 5/1/2016. The ship is an amazing ship! On the day of embarkation, we had a 10:30am check-in time at the port. On that same day the Dream had a Coast Guard inspection so unfortunately we did not get to board until noon. Other than that embarkation day was great. The ship is beautiful and the staff was very friendly! The pasta grill was excellent, we did that on the first day and really enjoyed it. The rooms were ready promptly at 1:30pm like they said they would be and the room was great. Was told beforehand by John Heald that we could get both morning and evening service, when the steward asked us what we wanted I requested both. After that we ended up only getting morning service anyway, not a huge deal though because I was on vacation. We ate in the main dining room for Sea Day Brunch and it was outstanding. The staff in the dining room was great and very attentive for sea day brunch and for dinner. We did go to the steakhouse on the first night and the food was outstanding, I think it is well worth the extra $35/person. We did not go to the shows or the comedy club, it's not our thing. We did a lot of the trivia and listened to the live music in the Ocean Plaza and thought it was outstanding. The waterworks, aft pool, and serenity decks were great and we never had any issue finding a lounger. Igor and Mary Grace in the Ocean Plaza Bar and Warren and Suripta in the Casino were some of the best bartenders/bar waiters we have had on a cruise ship. The only negative things I can say about the ship itself was the slow elevators. There were 3 elevators that were out of service for the entire 7 days. And this was the only cruise I have been on where people would rush an elevator even if it was full to go down 1 story. Needless to say I took the stairs quite a bit. Debarkation was very quick and we got off the ship earlier than expected. I loved the Dream and there never was a single smell of sewer, however our room did have plumbing issues halfway through the cruise, but after a quick call to guest services it was taken care of with no further issues. I loved the Dream and would definitely sail on her again!Corbett, Yesterday at 5:24 PM
There was always something going on. This was our first cruise and we'll definitely go again. We're glad we got the balcony room. The cleaning people kept the room spotless. All of the waitstaff was very friendly. But the food could have been a little better. It was very good, but not great. I still ate a ton! The breakfast was nothing to brag about. But there was something for everyone in all departments. We left the kids at home, but it was very kid friendly. There was also a "serenity" deck for 21+ that was very quiet. The comedy acts were great, the shopping was fantastic, and there was so much to do. Certainly not enough time, even though it was a week long. Even the port excursions were awesome and reasonably priced. I'd recommend to anyone and will bring the kids next time.anthonyumlauf, Yesterday at 12:55 PM
