We had a wonderful time on the Dream. It was our first cruise and also our honeymoon. We were 30 years younger than the average age onboard, but had no trouble finding fun activities to do. I read many reviews before leaving and was somewhat concerned, but in the end I was satisfied. We had a problem with the weather on the last day, causing us to arrive late to the port and thus most everyone missed their flights...NCL did a nice job coordinating 1700 people on new flights and arranging hotels. It wasn’t perfect, but with only hours to plan it was handled well. We were put on the wrong bus, but a rep. at the airport quickly called and sent us to the proper hotel.
The cruise was fine otherwise. Very smooth, except that last day in 60 mph winds (Gale). Meals were good. Service Excellent. Yes, the bathroom and shower were small, but I expected this. Closet space was an issue, but even my LARGE suitcase fit under the bed and was easily slide out to make a under-bed drawer of sorts.
The Dream is a large, beautiful ship with a great crew. I will try to find another itinerary with this same ship again someday.
