Sail Date: September 07, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Very very clean..and a constant effort for it to be clean by the crew..always bustling around and friendly.The ship is staffed in half by phillipinos and they r wonderful hard working people.The room was great..we were upgraded by and had a bottle of sparkling wine in our room and warm cookies 2 nites b4 we were done the cruise.
My husband is handicapped and he rode his go go all around the ship with ease...except getting out the sports bar(lip in door)hed have to speed up..alot of helpful people though working and eager to help him.Loved the sports bar and the buffet..HATED only one station for coffee..hard to get to..traffic jams..if it is free style cruising then why is one dining room designated no jeans after 530..they should all be that way.
drinks are over priced..the pics are over priced..except the one when you get on embarking on the a folder with a pic of ship and also wallets and a couple of 3 by 3, deal.paying 15 for a special resteraunt isnt good either...we paid enuff.
the layput of the ship was good..but if they r having rehearsals in the theater and u need to cut thru there to get to your room they will tell u to leave..or of a show is goin on and u want to get thru..forget it..and i donrt like how you have to walk thru the dining roon on deck 9 if you come from the back of the ship..weirdloved the theater..superior next to the majesty..

Pros: free style dining and the entertainment!

Cons: some of the staff

Recommends Norwegian Dream (RETIRED)? Yes!

Ship Quality
very clean and very disease conscience..spraying your hands all the time with disinfectant..loved the decor of the theater..feel the couches in the stateroom need some the small ottamans to put your feet up on
Food and Dining
i loved the food..loved the coooking light menu and thought that they made a great efort to have variety for us dieters!
Cabin / Stateroom
good sized room..shouldve got a handicapped though..more room for his bike which was a pain in even the larger room
Service and Staff
lovely people..the dancers..some of them were snooty..but with those bodies id be the same way!the asst cruise girl..was very nice..the head guy was apompous ass..and someone needs to tell him to either get some new pants that fit or wear them different..his pants went straight up his ass..he needs new pants!ive never seen a man in pants so tight!
scotty too hotty..stretch..angel..great assets
christiansian..send him home to bermuda..theres dry humour and then theres asshole.iness..he is that..he is homesick and tempermental and just watch him in the tape of the crew goodbye show..he is not a team player and he is a pouter..saw him in action at karaoke..a brat.sorry.but ive seen many cruise staff and he sucked
