welcome return

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
This is second time on the dream, we've had no problems at all, in fact in some areas its improved. All the staff work hard, never a sad face and nothing is too much trouble. The ship is dated but it Is 30 yrs old. Everywhere you turn the staff are busy cleaning or painting, polishing and scrubbing. The staff talk freely and make you smile, they may burst into song as they often do in the Orion restaurant but its not an effort, they do make you feel good.

Food on board has improved on last year, more variety and there's something for everyone, the Grill restaurant is good and if there's a birthday or anniversary Hazel will pop in and sing to you, she is an amazing singer. Being mostly British clientele you would think the Dream would serve up a decent cup of tea. Although we did get a nice cuppafrom Alvis at breakfast along with his comical antics.

We used the tender once that week when we stopped at bequia, it was organised chaos. We queued along the corridors and More back again which was fair enough but people coming down the stair case didn't know whoere the back of the queue was and just pushed in.

The excursions were mixed, we had a beach afternoon which sounded good but we ended up like sardines on this narrow bit of sand. However my quad bike ride was a great success.

Entertainment wasgood but very Butlinesque, as for the guest comedian we saw him last year and he wasn't funny then. Overall a good time and maybe a third time in the future. PS wi fi is still way too expensive Less

Cabin review: DE5069

Cabin was clean and tidy, bathroom a bit small but adequate, not enough sockets for today's electronic gadgets. Our steward, Etti did a lovely job.
