7 Night Texaribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 13, 2007
Ship: Norwegian Dream
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

We loved our cabin - a superior ocean view with a large picture window - perfect for ocean viewing and in port. Everything was convenient to our location and we enjoyed that.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
As stated before, we were disappointed in the entree selections on the ship.
Most food was good, but some unsatisfactory. One day, a choice was "Octopus, mussels & blackened mushroom salad". I can't imagine anyone wanting to order such a horrible sounding entree. The lobster, the
turkey scallapini, and some others were great. The lobster and shrimp ravioli was horrible. I know some Italians who could teach them how to make ravioli. It seemed to be boiled and was slimy and inedible.

This, too, was below the standard we are used to on cruises. The company show cast repeated the same routines over and over with different costumes on different themes. Music was loud, but words to songs were not understandable. If we could have understood the words, they might have made more sense. Disappointing entertainment. Comedian was good,
magician so-so (not much new material), ensemble was not entertaining to us.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Very difficult to understand some of the staff making announcements, most were very friendly and helpful. The casino staff of floor workers was fantastic.
Rowena del Rosario, Orhan and Irina were all very friendly, very helpful, and made it fun to play and even to lose in the casino, one of our favorite pastimes.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We loved it and will order that arrangement again. Plenty of room, plenty of closet and drawer space, and even a refrigerator. Great.

Pros: We love free-syle dining - eating when & where you want is perfect for us. We could dress up when we wanted or go casual.

Cons: We were disappointed in the food selection - not up to the standards we have enjoyed in the past on cruises.

Recommends Norwegian Dream? Yes!
