I read your chat with Jim. My husband and 13yr old son are going on the Dream the week of 12-30. I believe that the people are what make a fun trip and I can't wait. How old are your boys? We are hoping for our son to meet some friends on this trip maybe we can hook them up. Hope you get this. This is my first time chatting with strangers. We also plan on snorkeling in some fun spots.
Your fellow cruiser, KPR

I did a little research and the Dream and Majesty were both built in 1992, but the Dream is 50,760 tons and the Majesty is only 40,876 tons. So would be pretty small but not the smallest I have been on.

Thanks,

while you have posted what the gross tons of these ships are today, don't forget the Dream and Wind were stretched during 1999. Before they were stretched to 50,000+ tons, the Dreamward and Windward were only 39,217 gross tons. They were also only 624 feet long, less than the 700 feet length limitation to dock at St. George, Bermuda. Today they are 754 feet long, much too long to dock at St. George.

The Majesty was also stretched in 1999. The Majesty's gross tons was just 32,396 tons before it was stretched. It was also only 568 feet long; today it's 680 feet long. After stretching, it's still less than 700 feet long, which makes it ideal for Bermuda cruises.

Stretching these ships have kept them in service much longer with a major cruise line NCL. Otherwise, NCL probably would have sold/retired them years sooner.

Actually, if you want to get technical I believe it was 1998 the Wind and Dream were stretched.

The cabin in the pictures is #8250 its a GG category cabin at 152 sq ft. It basically the same as any other oceanview cabin except that it had a 50% obstructed view. My sister was on the opposite side of the ship from us in a category G cabin. Identical room .. but with a 100% obstructed view.

The superior oceanview cabins are bigger. And the Balcony cabins are about the same size inside but off course have the balcony.

Hope that helps

Other than the obstructed view.. its the same as the one in my pictures. The only complaint I had on the room was the lack of "desk" space. They have a little tiny desk that quickly fills up with the stuff you gather during a cruise (take a look at my pictures and you will see what I mean.) If we had not brought the dollar store shoe hangar thingy, we would have had big troubles. THIS IS A MUST. If you are a serious cruiser or plan on going again, get a good one .. else, hit a dollar store and for a buck you get a lot of storage compartments.
