Dream was to big a ship even though it was great!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
We did have some rough water going and we were in the front of the ship for the first time ever and we did hit some waves that made the ship hit hard a couple of times, but family that was in the middle of the ship did not notice as we did. Less
Cabin review: 8C11209 Balcony
Cabin 11209. In the front of the ship. Service was excellent. We had high winds 2 nights of sailing down to St. Thomas and the ship hit hard a couple of times. Balcony cabin and excellent. I like the special elevator for the SPA rooms to go up and down and up to the adults only deck, too. Quiet.Read All Balcony (8C) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
St Phillipsburg, St Maarten. Take the water taxi over to the main shopping area and you can shop, swim and eat all in the same area. Beach was wonderful and the Barefoot Restaurant is right off the pier. Food was good!
Nassau- Went to Paradise Island Beach which is Cabbage Beach. You cannot get into Paradise Island Hotel and Beach from here. They will let you use the bathroom which is a little walk in the sand from the beach drop off. We went to Hard Rock to get a shirt and I think that I saw Star Bucks also. The taxi driver did not have change for our money so he kept the change as a tip and I think that was a planned thing. So take plenty of one dollar bills with you to pay exactly. When leaving the beach you have to wait for the taxi to be full before they will take you back. They are informed of your time to be back at the ship and they do try hard to get you there in time if you are running late.
The ship could have used more ...
