 Norwegian Dream

Norwegian Dream has been retired and is no longer in service

Built as NCL's Dreamward in 1992, this ship was stretched by Lloyd Werft shipyard in 1998, when a 131 ft. mid-section was added, improving the vessel's overall appearance. She is the largest ship to regularly transit the Kiel Canal, and in order to be able to do so, she features a collapsible funnel and mast.

    After reading some of the other reviews here, I felt compelled to add my own, wondering about how experiences on the same ship and same sailing can vary so greatly. Chalk us up in more

    I found the ship itself fine. Many people complain about mediocrity not realizing they are sailing with a middle-of-the-road, medium price cruise line. The food was excellent. I do more

    This cruise was supposed to be a honeymoon for me and my wife. We had planned well in advance for the time off and paid good money for this cruise, which was by far the absolute more

    This was the first cruise for my wife and I and we were very apprehensive (neither one of us likes boats all that much) The cruise was paid for by my parents who attended and also had more

    I read so many negative reviews of the Norwegian Dream, that I thought I had to write my own review. The service we experienced was excellent. The ship, although 12 years old was in more
