Default What can you share about the Dream?

Adele suggested, on another thread, that I ask this question...I think it is a great idea! There isn't much information on the Dream out there...can anyone share stories, opinions, recommendations, photos, dailies?

I want this to be a "Dream" not a "Nightmare"! Thanks!

I have not been on the Dream since 12/99 so any insight I could give is dated. I have been on the ship as the Dreamward before they cut it in half and added 150' to the ship and after. Also I have never cruised the Dream since Freestyle was added.

That said you may not have a chance to cruise on a mass market line and enjoy what is now considered a small ship. Easy to get around. I enjoyed the aft pool area. If you want the poolside games and music the mid ship pool area is great.

Here is a link to many reviews and pictures. I have not seached the links but it may be better then nothing.

I hesitate to post because I always say the same things over and over. I sailed on the Dream last November in a balcony cabin and had a wonderful time. The ship is sparkling clean, the atmosphere low-key; the cabin steward was friendly and attentive; the food ranged from average to terrific. Don't expect glamour or excitement and you'll be satisfied. At the beginning of the cruise, no one seemed to realize that there was a sitting area on deck 8 aft, or a pool on deck 9 aft.

I'd go again in second if I could.

The Terraces Restaurant, aft, is a very nice venue - but I bet hard work for the wait-staff, with all the stairs. Much more pleasant than the main dining room, which is bisected by a main companionway, fore and aft.

I preferred the ship's layout before the stretch job.

The Lido and Sports Bar eating areas are very small, and in my opinion, inadequate for the passenger load normally carried.

I loved my cruise on the Dream back in March. I did post a photo album of that cruise, while most of the pics are from Belize and Cozumel, there are a few taken while on the ship.

Smile Loved it!!

We were on the Dream Feb/2004. Loved the size of the ship....so easy to get around and the crew was great!!!! I just hate they are moving the ship to Texas out of N O.. We also enjoyed the bar-b-que poolside! Any questions you have I will try to answer.
