Review summary

From the embarkation process to the last sea day it was a fantastic experience. from the time we checked our luggage until I was eating at Guys Burger joint was only about 1hr. The ship was very easy to navigate and the staff was super friendly.


Our room steward was outstanding and filled every request promptly. Greeted us by name and with a smile every time we passed. Same goes for the wait staff in the main dinning room, room service and steak house. Even the buffet area staff always had a smile and pleasant greetings.


The cruise director, Chris the Flying Scottsman, was amazing. Full of energy, fantastic singing voice and always there for your questions, pics and to make sure you were having a great cruise.


The entertainment was top notch. Every person or group that performed in the Dream lobby was fantastic. From the singers to the violinist to the guy playing the Caribbean drums none of them missed a beat. The nightly shows in the Encore lounge were the best. Everyone of them, 5 total, were not to be missed. Great singing and dancing and even bits of comedy in a high quality performance.


I think after this cruise my wife and I are hooked. I just hope the next one can live up to the high standard this cruise has set.

Ship tip

If you like Barbeque get in line early on at the Pig and Anchor. Its only open for 2.5 hours and only on sea days. Final tip is get in the line from the aft of the ship not the mid. Its always about 1/2 the size or less.
