We sailed out of New Orleans Louisiana on May 31st to June 7th. getting through the embarkation process only took 25 min. was the fastest time we ever had. We got on the ship and had a great selection of foof for lunch. Then the Rain started and never stopped. So we only went outside for a quick view of the ship leaving port which is always nice. Just wish we could have sat on the top deck for the entire trip down river. I always enjoy that. We then had 2 Full sea days that was enough for my family. 1st stop for Mahogany Beach in Roatan and guess what it rained all day long. the beach never got full due the the weather. We were some of the first people off the beach and walked down to the pier and did some snorkeling out to the reefs and the drop off. we saw lots of fish, eel and an eagle ray which was a first for everyone in our group thanks to my daughter seeing it and pointing it out. the beach was clean and beer was cold. the only negative is the prices on beer were the same as the boat. this was our 4th visit to Roatoan and we went to West Bay beach the last 3 times the prices are alot cheaper. 3 beers for $5 bucks vs. 28 bucks for 6 on Mahogany Beach. Oh Well. guess the cost of the cab made up for it. Belize was normal nothing new. eat at Birds Isle whichis excellent food and walk. Cozumel we took a cab to Buccano's and had Large nachos and beer and 2 cokes. 35 bucks plus 40 bucks to enter the gate. Cab was 16 bucks each way for 4. WARNING normal price to enter Buccan's is 30 bucks per person per the owner. I made such a fuss since I emailed them up front the had to honor the price. but it was worth it. the snorkerling was great. water was perfect. great place. would go back. Food on ship was good. and expected. Steak night was a suprize. they were great cooked perfect. we missed the Lobster night but had some cow tounge which my kids enjoyed and we did have sit down dinner almost every night. lines got longer each day. breakfest was super long on Port days/stops. watch out and get up 30 min earlier if you can. Pool chairs were hard to find around the main Lido pool but worth getting up early to watch daily entertainment. that was the best part of the sea days. I would go back on the Dream. very clean, good staff. price was good. Shows were a little late in the night so that was a bit of an issue with us but not much. enjoy.
