Breakfast options on the Dream?

Do they serve breakfast in the MDR's or lunch for that matter?

One of the MDRs will have a sit down breakfast/lunch option, and a different one will have a buffet option. Hours will be listed in the Navigator.

Do you need reservations ? Would this be a good way to avoid the possibility of a crowded buffet ?

No reservations. But the hours are more limited than the regular buffet in Cabanas.

No personal experience with the Dream (yet), but on the the classic ships, the buffet always seemed to be a better choice for us. The buffet (in Parrot Cay on the classics) was more limited than what was available in the regular buffet. And the table service, would just take too much time out of the day for us. Service at the sit down breakfast/lunch was much more relaxed, and slower.

Buffet breakfast will be in the Enchanted Garden and sit down will be in the Royal Palace.

If you are lucky enough to eat in the Animator's Palate on your last night then your breakfast will be in there before you return to reality.

We were on the Dream in December. No reservations required for breakfast or dinner and they wouldn't have been necessary even in the MDRs where we mostly ate. They're very big and were never crowded even on at sea days. We ate there at different times on different days so there doesn't appear to be any time which is better or worse. I think it's not crowded because not everyone goes to the restaurants for lunch (many just eat on deck) and many people are in and out in relatively short periods of time.

Cabanas breakfast is amazing! Also much better on dream/fantasy than the classic ships. Unless you must get the meals served to you, best option!

We had one breakfast and one lunch in a MDR on the dream. It was nice for a change, but we thought the food was actually better at Cabana's.
