I honestly haven't done "Dream" yet, and did indeed have it booked for this November, but backed out, and booked "Miracle" instead. I AM anxious to try Dream, but not until all the "bugs" have been ironed out. Having said all that, I LOVE the Spirit class ships, like "Legend" and "Miracle". They simply are big enough to have lots of activities, but not so big that they feel crowded. I've sailed that class ship over, and over and never tire of them. As far as your question, I think you'll probably be happy with either ship, and either cruise. Base your choice on factors, other than the ship.
