Fine Time on Dream

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Cruise was generally well done.

Pools were small however they were not overly used.

Hot tubs abound but close too early.

Ship does poor job of separating smoking from not smoking areas.

Nice feature of design is that there are many passageways that run fore and aft. Much less of the "Can't get there from here effect".

Water slides were nice but achieved a rapid "Been there, done that"

First of the music and dance shows was truly exceptional. The second was much more average.

Auditorium was of correct size. Could get good seats without getting there too much in advance.

Comedy club (Burgundy lounge) had very good and numerous acts. Size was large but filled up early. Multiple shows helped.

Seaside theatre is smaller than expected. Filled up very easily.

Food quality - generally good most days. Rarely anything truly special but generally at least good.

Staff was generally good and More unobtrusive. No complaints on steward or wait staff.

Spa and gym areas were well but not over used. Less

Cabin review: 4S11228 Spa Interior

Room was fine. Mostly quiet. Some nightly noise from above (chairs being moved). Inside room but well located to get around the ship easily.

Mahogany Bay was a very nice, new cruise destination. Vastly better than previous trips to Coxen Hole.
