Hope you get this before you leave. My sister and I have just returned, March 7 from a cruise on the Dream. This is our second trip in six months on the same vessel. I don't know what you are looking for in a cruise, but we've never been disappointment with any cruise on NCL.
As far as I am concerned the ship is not my destination, but my means to a destination. I enjoy the fellow passengers that I meet and I love the crew members. They will do anything they can do to make your stay memorable. Don't be afraid to ask for something special. If it is withing their power it will be done. Special food, if it is in the stores, special preparation, etc. Remember it is your cruise and they are there to accommodate you if at all possible.
Dining experience - treated to unsurpassed attention in both the Sports Bar and at the Italian Restaurant Tratora. If you go to the Tratora, ask for Ancel Harris' location. You will not be disappointed with the service and if the food is not done to your liking Mr. Harris will make sure you are satisfied.
Sports Bar - there are several young people there, but specifically Andrea from Latvia and Dragisha (where he is from I am not sure) but they will both do there best to accomondate you. The Assistant Matrie D is Andrew Ancog, USA and he is on between 3-12.
Sports Bar - bar waitress Danellia from Romania I believe and she will remember you, what your drink preference is and will take good care of you.
Four Season's - they have a new waiter there by the name of Alexander Sinillil - Estonia. He will see that everything is to your liking in that restaurant.
Piano _outside Coffee Bar - pianist is Ernie Scott. Great singer and pianist. Say hello from "Summertime", I always asked him to sing and play that for me.
They have an Internet Cafe, library, casino, shopping deck (10), you won't even know if there are children aboard as they have their own location. Health spa, beauty spa
As I said previously we sailed with this ship to Canada/New England in October of last year. Weather did not really cooperate, hit with two hurricanes, however even though we could not get into Halifax the ship activities keep us going.
We can't control the weather or circumstances, but we can make the best of a less than perfect siutaiton. In conclusion I will say ENJOY your travel companion(s), ENJOY the rest and relaxation, ENJOY the people you meet, both fellow passengers and crew . . . just ENJOY.
If you see any of the above mentioned crew members, say "HI" from the sisters, hopefully we will see them all soon as we are planning on doing the DREAM again when it has been refurbished the end of this year.
Hopefully I do not have to put a "disclaimer" on this, judge for yourself as only you know what you are looking for on a cruise or for that matter an vacation.
Also want to let you know, for the type of cruising we like NCL is the best, we've done Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Carnival, we keep going back to NCL.
Don't let anyone or any situation (such as weather - rather be safe than sorry) disappoint you. We could not get into Cancun because of rough seas, but we made an additional day at sea more enjoyable by being with people that made it so.
