It was confusing at times, the bubbly card was no use to me bar closed and could not get soda at 6 AM. I will be bringing my own drinks from now on. Other than that everything was great. Hope to get discount On my next cruise in September 2018.

Review summary

Overall it was a great experience. Celine on the dream September 2, 2018 hope to get a discount. Food And entertainment was OK for my first time. Not very friendly for smokers. Getting through the terminal to pick up my luggage at the end was horrible my luggage was torn and ripped I had to duck tape my luggage back together.

Onboard Activities

Pool own deck 10 had way too many children. It was not adult friendly with all the children around. My thoughts were children should not be around the bar and smoking area. We did not get to have a very good experience with the pool area .

The Fun Hub Internet Station

Sunset Pool

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Very small for three people. I will not room with three people ever again. Two to this type of cabin is is enough.

Ship tip

It would be nice to be able to smoke around the pool it would be nice to smoke around the bar when you are having a drink. For a smoker it was not very convenient to always have to go to Deck 11 ! I am not a very good fan of the casino but I went to the casino to smoke no seating was available for us to smoke. I thought you could smoke anywhere in the casino but no you could not only a small area with no seating.

It was horrible. !!! Picking up my luggage was horrible my luggage was torn ripped I had to use duct tape to tape it back together. Picking up my luggage and getting it to the terminal was horrible no help from anyone. Could not get an elevator to the parking garage had to climb for flights of stairs and I am a diabetic I was exhausted.
