After the one sided report on watchdog, we were a bit apprehensive about sailing on the Dream but believe me this ship has now been sorted out and there is nothing to worry about. It gets top marks in all departments just as the other ships in the fleet that we have sailed with. We had a two week cruise and stay, Santa Ponsa then a week on the ship. We were all inclusive on board and the AI drink menu is the most comprehensive in the fleet.

Embarkation was straightforward and we were in our cabin in no time. Cabin had a double bed and bath. It was spotless no smell and our cabin steward was very attentive.

The food on the ship is fabulous, one table service restaurant and a couple self service restaurants. All spotless with attentive staff. Selection of food was good and you never need to go hungry - anytime.

The entertainment led by Stephan Guy as Cruise Director was fantastic every night. How that man can sing. His team was on of the best we have seen, Stephan was evidently proud of them and so he should be.

Overall the cruise was the best we have done and I would not hesitate to recommend the ship and crew. We will go back.

Cabin Review

Cabin 6111
Cabin 6111 was huge in proportion to the Destiny. Bathroom dated but clean and functional. There was plenty of very hot water - but be quick there are over 1000 on board all taking a shower at the same time for tea. Plenty of hanging space and mini bar available. Free safe and hairdryer. Double bed which can be changed to a twin if you want. Away from lifts and warm.
