We did the Dream in March...do yourself a favour and don't waste your money.
The food was mediore, it is not the ship for their freestyle dining. The buffet was small and you cannot get a seat unless you arrive long before mealtime.
The had buffet on deck to accomodate the crowds but then again it is the seating problem.
Try Princess out of Galveston or stick with Carnival.
