  1. Just my two cents worth....we were on the Dream in June, our kids gave us the cruise for our 50th anniversary. They also reserved the steakhouse for us on our actual anniversary which was the second night and cruise elegant night and put money on our account since you can not pre pay for it. We were treated so well, and had the friendliest staff. We did receive the free bottle of wine, and we thought it was very good. We received the chef’s compliment, it was a chili and tomato and I could have eaten three of them it was so delicious, but good thing I didn’t because everything was delicious and plentiful! I had two appetizers, the beef tartar and bone marrow, and lobster bisque. We both got ribeyes, my husband the spiced and mine was the cowboy cut, and they were the size of dinner plates, lol. We could not even eat half of it, but our server told us no problem, they would fix it to take back to our cabin. Then we got the cheesecake, and they let us take that back to the cabin. So we left with one covered plate of steak and another with cheesecakes, with two napkins and silverware. Granted our reservations were early, at six, but we are early eaters, and the steakhouse was not crowded. We were at a table for four by the window and it was quiet and relaxing and never felt hurried. We could not have had a better experience.
  2. Just a follow up to this topic after being on the Dream. We had a standard balcony with the usual bathroom, and the toilet seemed to be taller than some house toilets. Also because of the closeness to the counter and sink you can reach right over and grab the sink if you need a little boost. We did receive a riser in our cabin as promised, but we realized we didn’t need it so asked the cabin steward to take it out, so the toilet height was not a problem at all:).
  3. I guess we were all on the same cruise! My husband has mobility issues so we didn’t attend a lot of shows, etc, but I agree the ship seemed crowded at the food venues. I expected it to be, and we tried to eat early so it was really not that bad for us.
  4. Thank you for doing that, I think we were on the same cruise, lol. I was going to post them when I got back and you saved me a lot of work!
  5. We got off of the Dream on Monday, was a four nighter, and there was brunch on both sea days with the new menu. My husband got an omelette and I got the eggs Benedict and we both got the cheesecake for dessert and it was all very good. We we ate at a table with a middle aged couple that were first time cruisers, and they ordered just about everything, they were so cute and wanted to try it all:). The waiter didn’t bat an eye and we had a very pleasant brunch with them. My husband was in shorts and a t shirt and so was just about everyone else....it’s Carnival and breakfast for heaven’s sake, if you want fancy you should book on Viking or Holland America, lol.
  6. Our kids gifted us with a cruise for our 50th anniversary, and reserved the steakhouse for us. They gave us cruise cash to cover the cost of the Steakhouse since you can not pre pay for it. One example of a good use for it.
  7. That’s what my husband said, lol. But I called this morning and reserved a riser, the young man on the phone was very nice to make sure we didn’t need anything else.
  8. I thank you all for the information!
  9. I am wondering about the same thing, but on the Dream. I wonder if all the toilets are the same height? I’ve had bilateral knee replacements and just a little harder getting up or down with really low toilets, chairs etc. Sorry, I didn’t mean to hijack your thread:)
  10. We ‘ll Be on the four nighter later this month....I’ll post pics when we get back if someone hasn’t already posted them by then, stay tuned🛳😎
  11. Now that the Dream has a few 4 night cruises completed from Galveston, does anyone have the MDR menus or fun times you can share? Thanks, and how was your cruise?
  12. Very interested:). I’ll be on her sister ship the Dream soon, and while there are some differences in the names of venues, etc, it’s basically the same ship. I love to be able to better familiarize myself with the layout by reading all the great reviews I’ve seen.
  13. Did you have ATD and could you use the Hub to check in on the Dream? Also did you use the text? We are on the Dream this summer and my husband and I always seem to get separated in the casino, being able to text each other would be nice instead of wandering around looking for each other:).
  14. If it helps any, I ordered a card on the 8tth and received it yesterday, the 15th.
  15. I’ll be on the Dream in June and have YTD so I’ll report back in:)
