03-06-2017 - four night Bahamian Dream

Where: Bahamas - one stop at Nassau, one stop at Cast Away Cay
Who: Me (50), DH (60), DD Samantha (33), DD Kathryn (23), and DD Lauren (19)

We've done (as a family) the Mediterranean Magic, and Alaskan Wonder.
Samantha and her DH have done the Bahamas with his family, but the rest of us have never been on the Dream (or Fantasy).

Looking forward to it!
Just wondering if anyone else is going.

Not going, but wish I and my Hubby were. The vacation seems awesome and I know you and your family will have a wonderful time.

Darn! It would have been wonderful to meet you. Enjoy the new decor! We've done the Magic and the Wonder, and loved them. The newer, HUGE ships concern me. I really liked getting to know some of our fellow ship-mates on the smaller ships.

DD Lauren is excited that there's a young adult club for her age group - too old for teen group, too young for the bars.

We took a 3-night cruise on the Dream last weekend, after doing our last 3 cruises on the Magic. There were certainly more people on the Dream, but it was still easy to meet people at dinner, in lounges, and at events.

My main issue was that the layout was in many ways similar to but in some ways different from the Magic (for example, the adult clubs are aft rather than fiorward), so I kept turning in the wrong direction. Also, the ship is longer so it takes more time to go between fore and aft.

In general, though, we enjoyed the cruise just a much as our Magic cruises, except that 3 days was much too short. (We knew that, but didn't want our daughter to miss more than a day of school, so we found a long weekend when she'd miss only 1/2 day.) A 4-night should be better -- the sea day will give you more time to explore the ship, and more activities.

Enjoy!

Melissa

CHEZ!! We saw you! I waved. DH and I were having a Couple's Choice in the Spa, when I looked up and realized - there was a DISNEY SHIP keeping pace with the Dream, and it was heading in the same direction we were! It was the Wonder.

Oh how funny! I took photos of you guys and even got a shot of someone on the AquaDuck from our room. That was a fun night, except we asked the Dream to stay with us to do joint Pirates fireworks and then you guys disappeared.... All I know is we made the offer, all the staff were expecting the Dream to be there all night and around 8:30pm, she was suddenly gone.
