I just got off the Dream at the end of April and it really didn't feel overly crowded too me. And you have to remember that this ship had only been sailing for three months so it's still a really new ship and folks are definitly sailing her. Probably were we noticed the most crowds were at the family beach and the family pool areas. We don't have kids so these areas didn't affect our cruise experience. We were able to ride the Aqua Duck back to back twice with only maybe a 5min. wait two seperate times. As far as the cabins are concerned..we had a balcony on deck 9 and though I thought it might have felt a bit smaller than the Wonder that we had just got off of at Thanksgiving, hubby said he didn't notice it.
Though the adult pool is way different than the other ships, we were also able to enjoy a soak here too without feeling like sardines.
We rebooked onboard to sail the Fantasy!
