  3. Marella Dream
First time on a cruse the Dream is not the biggest ship compared to some you see but it is mostly brits, the food is top notch propper bacon for breakfast all in all eating on the ship is better than I expected. the cabin was just big enough for two it had a drinks bar which you have to pay for if you use it don't under stand that because if you go to the bar which there are loads of you can get any of the drinks and more that you have in your cabin, or cabin steward was Norman hello Norman. The captain is always walking around and is a very nice man, One tip if you put your towel on a sun bed then lets say you go for breakfast there is a chance it will not be there when you come back for some reason if someone wants the bed your towel is on all they have to do is tell one of the crew that towel has been there for a long time with no one on it and he will take it away and you get charged £10 if it happens go to reception you will find it there. We did the Panama canal trip what an experience don't want to tell you not to do it, you make your mind up the coach we had should not be called a coach as it was a reck the rep on it she had the microphone as load as she could and you could not understand her she repeted every thing until you ears were bleeding, When we got to the boat at last we set off to the first lock and tied up we had to wait for other boats to fill the lock it took about one hour, the food on the boat is pasta which is in the price of the trip which is £93 there is beer $2 a can, It took so long to get through the locks when we got to the bus time was getting on and the driver was flat out to get us back to the ship and as i said the bus was crap the rep started her chat again which only she knew what she was talking about, not worth the money. We went to Aruba great sunbathing on there beeches, did not feel safe when docked along the Columbian ports be alert if you go ashore,

First time on a cruse the Dream is not the biggest ship compared to some you see but it is mostly brits, the food is top notch propper bacon for breakfast all in all eating on the ship is better than I expected. the cabin was just big enough for two it had a drinks bar which you have to pay for if you use it don't under stand that because if you go to the bar which there are loads of you can get any of the drinks and more that you have in your cabin, or cabin steward was Norman hello Norman.

One tip if you put your towel on a sun bed then lets say you go for breakfast there is a chance it will not be there when you come back for some reason if someone wants the bed your towel is on all they have to do is tell one of the crew that towel has been there for a long time with no one on it and he will take it away and you get charged £10

if it happens go to reception you will find it there.

We did the Panama canal trip what an experience don't want to tell you not to do it, you make your mind up the coach we had should not be called a coach as it was a reck the rep on it she had the microphone as load as she could and you could not understand her she repeted every thing until you ears were bleeding,

When we got to the boat at last we set off to the first lock and tied up we had to wait for other boats to fill the lock it took about one hour, the food on the boat is pasta which is in the price of the trip which is £93 there is beer $2 a can,

It took so long to get through the locks when we got to the bus time was getting on and

the driver was flat out to get us back to the ship and as i said the bus was crap the rep started her chat again which only she knew what she was talking about, not worth the money.

We went to Aruba great sunbathing on there beeches, did not feel safe when docked along the Columbian ports be alert if you go ashore,

Cabin Review

Cabin 1004
Cabin was just the right size for two people as I've not been on other cruise ships can't compare room size but seemed OK for what it was used for sleeping our steward was very pleasant his name was Norman.
