The dream 6-9th

Just off the dream - fabulous as usual - going back on next weekend!
A few things that I noted: Went to AP - I did not notice the changing of te outfits that the servers used to do - has that stopped now?
Also really do not like the pushy sales technique from the spa staff - never used to be quite as bad as this - has put me off somewhat to go back to have treatments on my next cruise....................I booked my DH in for a shave and he left with 3 products he did not need - I know you are probably saying " why did he take them then" but he had never been to the spa before and he did not realise the way it worked there, and I was paying the bill - $68 for a cleanser, another $68 for a tomning lotion and $95 for a moisturiser !!!!!!! I did ask the manager to return them and she refused. It just left a bad taste thats all.
Another point :Went to Atlantis for the day - saw several people who had been hurt on the rapids ride - one guy with a large scrape all down his shoulder. My hubby got pushed out of his raft on the same ride - one of the staff pushed him down the first little "hill" and he came out and cut his foot.
They dont seem to have much interest in your safety, or at least the staff on the day we were there didnt. Also noticed the bottom of several pools there had tiles missing and patches of rough concrete, did not notice that in feb when we were there.
All in all a fab vacation though, just a few of my thoughts.

AFAIK, the vest changing thing is not on the Dream or Fantasy as they have a different "show" in the dining room than the Magic & Wonder.
