Great TR. I really feel that I've toured the ship through your photos. [But you didn't include any photos of yourself or James (except his arm). You should add one!] I especially loved seeing the menus and picking out what I would order!! Thanks for putting this together.

You have inspired me to try Palo's on our upcoming 5-night cruise in August. I'm thinking of booking it on night four (if possible) so we have experienced all of the other restaurants first. Without knowing our dining rotation night 4 seems like the best bet.

Thanks again!
Thank you so much for your kind words! And yes, if you can experience Palo AND all the rotational restaurants, DO IT!

Thank you! I (clearly) loved taking pictures all over the ship!

That was a great report! All those pictures almost made it seem like the ship was deserted though, lol. It was great seeing all the little details. We'll be on her in November and can't wait. We're also on the first Alaskan cruise...you should join us!

Forget the food items, I want to try all the drinks on Skyline's menu!

Thank you for such an awesome trip report and pictures! I'll be onboard the Dream in September, and your report has me that much more excited! I'm a Vinylmation addict myself, and I can't wait to get my hands on the exclusives! Was the Donald two pack sold in the shops? I didn't see it the merchandise pictures that you (and another user) took.

We thought about going on the first Alaskan cruise for a hot second...then we realized it was pretty close to our EBTA cruise and that wouldn't work out, haha.

It was indeed sold in the shops. However, it wasn't out the first day and we assumed that they sold out on the first two voyages (seeing as though they had a limited release number). We about lost it when we saw them in the shops the second day! So, honestly, I bet they're already sold out by now, but I could be mistaken!

We were in 9004. We don't have any complaints about that area!



My answers are in red. I hope it helps! Back to work I go...I hope to have Part 2 of Day 1 posted tomorrow!


Great pictures they are soooooo sharp, can you tell me the make and model of camera you used?
We were on the Inaugral cruise on the Dream - fantastic ship!

I am soo excited!! You have our room we booked on the Fantasy!! The kids have been trying to find room reports on it (9000) but no one has posted one yet...we knew we'd be able to see the navigator deck from the window...so they're so excited you got that shot!!
Oops, just saw your room was 9004, well, just two doors down..the view looked like it would be 9000!

Now, WHAT IS YOUR CAMERA????? I love love love the pictures!!!!

You're welcome! And I actually bought an even better camera and used it on my recent EBTA cruise. The link for my TR is in my signature...those photos are quite spectacular if I do say so myself!
