This was a stay & cruise; stayed at santa lucia palma-nova then the dream in palma was very plaeasent holiday well worth it.arrived at palm a on time ,smooth transit to hotel first drop off getting better was busy at check -in asked to come back in 10 mins went to bar was ready for a pint anyway . They then checked us in shown to room . Room quite spacious the veiw from the balcony was something else we vwere on the 1st floor looking over the swimming pool and further towards magaluf in distance .

Hotel staff very helpful and hotel very clean we knew we were going to have a great holiday .

Food . plenty of choice at breakfast we were ai so we had our own section at the top part of the resturant tyis also goes for evening meal as well .

CRUISE - our transport shuttle to the port was slightly late,but once we got there it was a quick check-in then on to the dream ,we got shown to our room on deck 6 then a quick unpack then first move a drink at the bar .We More have been on the dream before so we made straight for the madusa lounge . After a few drinks we had a walk about just to remember where everything was plus just to see what the upgrade to platinum meant .

Entertainment - shows were very good the only thing i found wrong was shortage of bar staff/waiters sometimes we had to wait quite a while for a drink ,im not blaming the waiters they were rushed off their feet .

food- very good selection for breakfast and all other meal times it was just trying to getting used to being served rather than self service due to bug of course did very well though.

sea-day - it was rather choppy and my wife was rather ill tried for her to get out of cabin but was back & forth to toilet ,went to reception for sickness pills they did work after a while but she had lost her appitite for most of the cruise what a shame she was looking forward to it.

EXURTIONS - we did a few as in Genoa ,then winetasting that was one of the best ones Barcalona of course .

iI think that covers it when i came home i had noticed i did not have my camcorder i thought i had packed it . i phoned aftercare on the mon 10th june and im still waiting for it they said it was found on the Dream and it may take 12 weeks but still waiting for it,was tol;d that a camcorder was handed in to head office and said they were sending a e-mail with identification of the camcorder name etc nbut nothing ,but apart from that great cruise keith & catherine Less
