Nice week on ship followed by nice week in hotel

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
Did a week cruise and week stay on Dream this was a late booking as we had cancelled our booked cruise to Black sea due to wrong info in cruise brochure which we only discovered one week before sail date. we had done med several times before and had looked forward to black sea, however settled to this cruise. flight was great, transfer easy, check in same. shown to our inside cabin which we had read had been refurbished and upgraded, it was only inside cabin and with such a late booking we didn't pay to choose our room and were allocated deck 6 forward. The cabin was fine, but the bathroom we thought very small and washbasin chipped. and no clothes line in bathroom in which to hang washed swimwear etc I have never encountered that on any other cruise line.

cabin kept clean by lovley DIDI. we ate most of the time in Orion restaurant which is on deck 4 really surprised by this again never before been on ship where restaurant does not have view of seas! there were just porthole More windows. but we were happy with service and food had a lovely waiter called Yogi. and apart from our last night always managed to get a table for 2 which we prefer. but last night was also ok on table for 6 we had good company.

ate in buffet at lunch time which was fine. not the best but ok

entertainment was good but made great by fab cruise director Bram Lorenz a really nice hard working guy who seems to love his job and leads by example from the front a credit to his employers.

ports of call good we did them all DIY so cant comment on trips.

we did think some drinks expensive 1.90 for can of coke.

we did encounter problems in getting sunbed, towels left for hours on empty beds. we also didn't like the overhang on the swimming pool roof area, made it very hot in that area we felt.

overall a good cruise. followed by a lovely stay at hotel in cala Bona Less
