Pretty good but will probably take a year off before cruising again

Sail Date: Mar 2014
Traveled with children

We sailed on the Dream March 8-15. We booked FTTF but since the bridge got stuck, by the time we got to embarkation there were no lines and so FTTF didn't help with boarding. We did get to go right to our cabin (balcony 8436) and drop our stuff off and head up to lunch.

Food - didn't love the buffet at lunch - the indian was good and so was the wok if you were willing to wait 40 minutes. My husband enjoyed the pasta bar. Dinner was okay. Many nights I didn't enjoy the entrees. The menu definitely needs some work. Of course the chocolate melting cake never disappoints.

Ship - décor was not very attractive and the layout confusing. Also, the gift shop had very little variety - surprised they didn't have more shopping on board.

Cabin Review

Great location - no noise at all and easy to get to everything. Would stay in same cabin again.
