Review summary

This ship is amazing.  It was our third Disney cruise, but our first on the Dream.  It's so much bigger and fancier than the other two older, smaller ships. My husband and I just go by ourselves  - the kids stay home! I enjoy the superior service and the quiet Adult areas. A tip we have learned: get on the ship as soon as possible, eat at the lunch buffet and hit the adult pool.  You get great seats and it's so peaceful. The entertainment is fabulous. We happened to go on a Halloween on the High Seas cruise, so we brought our Halloween costumes! We didn't win the costume contest, but we did get on stage and it was so fun! The food is good, the snacks are good, the rooms are always spotless and the staff are excellent.

On the less positive side, it's a big ship and there were always lines. Lines, lines, lines! The family pool areas can be crowded and insane on an at-sea day. Definitely try the AquaDuck, though. And alcoholic drinks are expensive. Beware of the before-show treats if you have kids. That will set you back a major amount over the cruise.  Still, it's a vacation so live it up!  We so love all the adults only restaurants.  We didn't get to go to Remy's but we've always loved going to Palo on every ship.  If you think your normal servers are excellent, these ladies/gentlemen are over the top. 

On a later cruise, (January) we went on the Wonder again and it just wasn't the same. The Dream is amazing, and I can't wait to go on the Fantasy some day.
