We don't get to experience the Dream until October but we have enjoyed everything from the Holiday to the Liberty.
By far, my personal favorite, is the Miracle. The layout makes it easy to get around because of the two-story aft dining room with no dining room mid-ships. That makes it possible to walk from one end of the ship to the other on every deck. Going up or down one or two floors because you happen to be on the dining deck can be a real pain.
