This was my 10th cruise (3 with RCCL and 7 with Carnival). It was my fiance and I, however, we had other friends that were on the Dream as well. This was by far the BEST CRUISE we have had! Don't get me wrong, there are a few things that need to be worked out, however, what vacation doesn't have something that can be improved. I will do my review in sections.
EMBARKATION/DEBARKATION: ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!! Smooth, quick and the staff were very efficient and friendly! We arrived at the pier at 1030, checked in at 1045, were seated for only 30 minutes in the waiting area and were on-board and eating at 1120! Debarkation was the same. We did the self debarkation. Got off at 0700, in the car at 0715, home to Poughkeepsie at 0830!! Unbelievable! Could not have been better!
ROOM: We had an aft balcony. The room was a typical size room for balcony and we had the extended balcony on the aft. The only complaint here would be the privacy. The dividers are at a 45 degree angle, therefore, no privacy! lol so, if you are looking to have a little discreet fun at night..probably not the best room for you lol. We had plenty of storage space and a couch! Nice room, great decor. Our steward was awesome! Animal and caper every night! :)
