Great food,fantastic entertainment ,but above all wonderful staff ! From the captain to the man cleaning brass fittings with a toothbrush , they all had a smile and time for the passengers nothing was too much trouble.We were concerned about some of the negative reviews but after a week of being made to feel special we wonder what some people expect.The Dream may be old but full of character,cabins are clean and comfortable,dining in the waiter served restaurants five star ! The service we received was second to none and equal to five star hotels we have stayed in recently but the shows are excellent and equal to any theatre show I have paid a fortune for and were the highlight of our cruise , the entertainment team deserve a big pat on the back. We booked shore excursions before we left but perhaps should have booked on ship but that's with hindsight,most were good but im sure our Barcelona guide tried to lose as many passengers from the trip before returning to the ship , So to sum up a very enjoyable cruise,lots of plus points and cant wait to go again. Don't be put off by the negative reviews,as a passenger just leaving when we arrived said "You are gonna love it"

Exceeded expectations
