Dream...Family Cruise

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
We have recently returned from the Mediterranean Medley cruise sailing 27th July.What a fantastic time we had,we were very apprehensive about the Dream after reading the very poor reviews about food temperature and quality,disappointing drinks choice and slow service along with the shabby state of the ship after the upgrade.If that wasn't enough there was the ongoing problem with the noro-virus.We found the the food choice,temperature and quality of a good standard, we ate breakfast and daytime in the Sirens Restaurant and every evening in the Orion Restaurant.The service in the restaurant by Billy and Raffy was excellent and the wine waiter

Anthony always made sure your glass was full. We were all-inclusive and enjoyed a variety of drinks including cocktails,Pimms ,Malibu along with the usual G + T's with Gordons or Bombay Sapphire on offer and plentiful wine with dinner what more do people want.As for the drinks service we never had any problems and always had fantastic More service on deck and in the evening from Ronny.Having never been on the Dream before we were unable to comment on the upgrade but ourselves found nothing to complain about all public areas clean and comfortable, cabins again always kept spotless and the couple of issues we had were dealt with straight away.Thankfully for us there was no sign of the dreaded noro-virus, but unfortunately at times you still see people not using the hand sanitisers after using the toilets!!We were a party of six and always got sunbeds sea day and everyday after our days out!!Entertainment was brill and something to suit all ages our party ranged from 13-70 a good time had by all.
