Nice cruise.

Sail Date: December 23, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was a nice cruise and ship, Norweigian Dream. Ship is older so don't expect elegance. Food and service is excellent, ate in the main dining rooms for dinner, the Four Seasons has excellent views. Surcharge restaurant the Bistro was good, but not better than regualr dining rooms. Entertainment was good, enjoyed the piano bar very much. Cabin service was excellent, room service very slow, 30 to 45 minutes for coffee. Port stops were nice. If stopping in Belieze do the snorkel excursion at the barrier reef, don't bother going into Belize city, its a dump and may not be safe. The port area for tourists is ok but this is not the actual city. My only real complaint is the hot tubs, only 2 on the ship and usually full of kids. The free ice cream bar is located next to the tubs, VERY bad location, hence kids sit ALL day in the hot tubs eating ice cream cones. Yes and cone wrappers are floating around in the tubs. All in all good cruise for the money, we had a good time.

Pros: Food is excellent. Cabin service excellent.

Cons: Hot Tub full of kids. Room Service took along time.

Recommends Norwegian Dream (RETIRED)? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Ship Quality
Hot Tubs not always clean.
Service and Staff
Cabin and restaurant staff is excellent.
Entertainment
Piano Bar is excellent.
Food and Dining
Make sure as soon as you get on the ship make your dinner reservations, you can call from your room as soon as you get on. DONT WAIT!!
Cozumel, Mexico
Nice shops, very americanized.
Don't Miss: Shopping and Beach Clubs. Dont visit beach clubs if it is windy.
Belize City, Belize
City is a dump. Area for tourists is clean and has shops this was fine, city is outside of this gated tourist area. Generic pharmacy in the city is a rip off dont bother. Near the post office in the city is a internet place, 13 cents a minute, this was the best part about Belize city.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling at the barrier reef.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Nice port, typical mexican town, take the $2 bus tour. Pharmacys dont have alot of variety, buy the penicilian cream called pencilliana, works great better than neosoprin and a container costs 85 cents. Cant snorkel at Corona beach, very windy and water is stirred up.
Don't Miss: Have a beer in one of the restaurants located on the beach.
