We picked this cruise for the itinerary, the duration and the dates. The ship was very tired, the lifts were shockingly bad, the food was hit and miss and the queuing in the buffet was rather like being at a school canteen. There ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on the Dream and the 3rd Transatlantic so we knew exactly what to expect. The ship is showing signs of her age (30) and the lifts are worse than I remember. However, none of this detracted from what was ... Read more

The Good. The crew from captain to cabin boy worked their socks off to make this an enjoyable experience. The show boys and girls deserve special mention displaying talents that must surely merit the attention of West End producers. ... Read more
