Didn't meet our expectations

Sail Date: July 01, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

I recommend this ship as far as being aware that it will not be an 'over the top' type of time. The ship was clean and service was great. The food wasn't great. I've had better buffet meals at local hotel chains. You pay a lot and get charged a lot for all incidentals and it doesn't leave you feeling like you got your money's worth. If you are looking for a great time that you will never ever forget, choose a different vacation style.

Pros: Being out at sea

Cons: Food--quality and options.

Recommends Norwegian Dream (RETIRED)? Yes!

Food and Dining
Average to poor for the food. Too much 'out of the ordinary' type of food. Would have enjoyed better quality of food. Buffets were cool-cold food. Chocolate buffet was a let-down!
Shows were good-not great, but good. If you have something else to do, do it. Shore excursion desk was inconvenient while docked. Not available to help with questions and issues. Be sure to buy the bus pass-taxis are expensive.
Children's Programs
Too many kids in the pools. Kids in the wet bar pool and they shouldn't be there.
Ship Quality
Very clean. Lots of stairways and staff able to assist.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean. Room was larger than we expected.
Service and Staff
All staff seemed to be friendly and helpful. Bartenders took a while to wait on you and complete the order.
