This was our 2nd time on the Dream. She has definitely aged in the two years since we last sailed on her, but still a good ship. Had a good time, but overall wasn't our best cruise.
PRE-CRUISE: Stayed at the Comfort Suites at the NOLA Airport. Highly recommend – we plan to use them again. Great room: clean, large and comfortable. Bed was great! Great breakfast and staff. 20 minutes from port.
PARKING: Used Fulton Parking Garage. We finally found the entrance after circling the block since our GPS led us to an ally next to the garage. When we arrived it was complete and utter chaos! Since we only had 2 pieces of luggage, we chose to not drop it off for the workers to carry it down for us. However, our other family members did so. When we all arrived in the lobby, no one was giving any kind of instruction as to what to do or where to go. There were shuttles outside, but the guys were unloading/loading and weren’t telling anyone what to do. My husband finally had enough of it and stopped one of them to find out what we were supposed to do. One of them finally stopped long enough to tell those of us who were trying to get to the cruise terminal what to do. Just madness. Once everyone finally had their luggage and was finally on a shuttle, we were off to the terminal. Return shuttle after the cruise went perfectly – shuttle back to Fulton was right outside of the terminal.
Loved the porthole windows - made for a unique cabin! Otherwise, cabin was standard with sitting area and large vanity area. Plenty of closet/storage space.
