Second adult trip with the Dream
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
ROOM: The Category OV is described as a family verandah suite. This room is comparable to Cat. 4 rooms in size but with upgraded touches in the fabrics, wood and décor. This particular room had a very large balcony and was close to the Concierge lounge.
PRICE: Easily the most expensive option is Concierge. We have had an NCL two bedroom Haven Suite for less with a Butler included and a bit more amenities. Disney Concierge is lovely, the personnel is very gracious and the food and beverages were outstanding. Not sure there is enough value there to ask such steep prices. Just an opinion.
FOOD: Palo was the star for sure. Mediocre and possibly declining food in the MDR's. Service hit and miss, lots of errors, not very personal and questionable quality. This is a first in our five Disney cruises.
PORTS: We have been to NASSAU numerous times but found More some new things to do-visited the John Watling Distillery, snorkeled with Blue Hole watersports, ate some conch at the fish fry and avoided the crowds at the market. Fun day. CASTAWAY CAY is always my favorite day. We had a cabana on the adult beach which was amazing. Had a delicious lunch, rode bikes, snorkeled, drank cocktails and enjoyed a fabulously perfect day.
CONCLUSION: Enjoyed our adult areas and for the most part were not inundated with children. Unfortunately noisy neighbors and smokers did kill our enjoyment of any balcony time. Disappointed with the food. The embarkation lunch was very good and surprisingly cabanas did a good job with buffet food. We're not really buffet folks though. Thought the personal attention to be more lacking than last year in cabin service, dining etc. I would do a cheapie Florida Resident deal again but most likely not the Concierge. There is no doubt Disney is clean, maintained, and a class act which is why we continue to cruise. Less
12th floor Concierge Family room close to the lounge. Balconies can be quite noisy up there. Used the pull down bed to eliminate the couch taking up so much space when folded out. Nice private sundeck and close to adult areas. Size comparable to Cat. 4 rooms.
