After 3 previous cruise on Royal Carribean's "Freedom of the Seas" the layout of "The Dream" was a dissappointment.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Unable to get whole wheat bread or buns (or any dark bread) in formal dining room at dinner time even though they offered heart healthy entrees. Some nights I couldn't get Earl Grey tea - other nights I got the tea but no teapot, just a cup of hot water; we were Early Seating so that wasn't a factor.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Travelled with 7 grandchildren (ages 3 - 15) in June on the Royal Carribean's "Freedom of the Seas" and they enjoyed their pool areas immensely; very happy we didn't have them on "The Dream", it would have been a nightmare.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The bar staff were the only ones really excited to see you each day - I'm sure their built-in gratuities helped.
