After cruising on the Valor for two years we had something to compare with the Dream. We found the Dream's entertainment, employee attitude, food, food service and ship management inferior to the Valor. We were disappointed with the overall experience.
To be more specific, the dining room (open seating) tables were setup so as to prevent socializing, bar service was non-existence and service courteous, at best.
The buffets were ok, not great. We appreciate the thousands the cooks have to serve but the Valor was better.
