A great cruise

Sail Date: May 17, 2007

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Sailed on the Dream on May 17 out of Dover. The ship was in excellent condition. the cabins were big with lots of closet space and plenty of hangers.The sitting area was a plus . Had room for everything. The bathroom provided shelf space which was very helpful and useful. I enjoyed the concept of Freestyle cruising. However, I thought the Bistro (which you pay for) Restaurant was a bit over rated. My only complaint was with the food. Not the type of food, but that it was never served hot. It was always on the cool/warm side. The Buffet breakfast, the hot food was never hot. Cold eggs, cold bacon, cold pancakes. It didn't matter which dining room you were in. The SportsGrill was a mess. The food was presented in a not to applealing manner and also was never hot. some times they had a partial buffet and other times there was none except for finger sandwiches. Bar prices were a little high as compared to other ships. The entertainment was good with a nice variety. The staff was excellent whether it was the room steward or the purser or the help around the ship.

Pros: the ports of call

Cons: the food. it was never hot, always on the cool/warm side.

Never served hot.
Ship Quality
I like the smaller ships. They will be greatly missed when there gone.
Cabin / Stateroom
Outside Staterooms were excellent

Great staff
Nice variety
Copenhagen, Denmark
Definetely need more time. Leaving port at noon time does not give you a chance to see much.
Stockholm, Sweden
Not enough time there
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Did the Hermitage Collection Gold Room tour, the Peterhof and city tour all very good and should not be missed. Went ot the folk dancing show at night. It was wonderful.
Don't Miss: hermitage collection
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
I did Berlin on my own since i was there before. The private train was a plus and very nice.

Helsinki, Finland
Do the city tour and walk around . want more time.
