Our cruise was October 2011.
Ports...Costa Maya/Mahoganey Bay...great. 3rd time to Belize, so might be getting bored with that port. Cozueml, we went to the National Park (forgot the name). A little disappointing.
Food in dining room...just so so
Service..just so so, but I believe the dining rooms operate with less staff.
Buffet food...just so so, and becomes very crowded in the buffet lines.
Our 17th cruise is coming up this October. Trying a cruiseline that is our favorite so we will see what is happening on other ships.

The Exotic Western Caribbean itinerary is my favorite. I don't think I will ever get tired of those ports.

The park in Cozumel is probably Chankanaab.

Glad to hear you had a great cruise!

I sailed her last Nov. The best wait staff in the anytime dining room and best cabin crew I ever had on a ship. The food was edible, nothing special. I did not loose weight so it couldnt have been that bad. LOL
Cruised on July 21-28th on the Dream. We were in stateroom 10205 which was an interior room but our room was at the front of the ship and had a window although they classfied it as obstructed view. We never saw anyone on that walkway. Basically had the entire walkway to ourselves.
This was my first 7 day cruise and we loved the length of the cruise. We went to Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay and Costa Maya. Cozumel-We went over to Playa del Carmen on our own and explored the shopping on 5th Ave and had drinks at Senior Frogs before heading back to Cozumel. Awesome time there. First time in Belize and wasn't impressed at all. Our cave tubing excursion was cancelled due to rain the previous night and the little port was very dirty and secruity was everywhere. We felt very uncomfortable there and returned to the ship. Mahogany Bay was very pretty. Prices are higher at the shops here so don't plan to shop if looking for deals but we did find an awesome painter at the end of the shops in the market for a great price. We enjoyed drinks at Fat Tuesdays before heading back to the ship. Costa Maya was also beautiful but not very big. We bought excursions to the ruins which were beautiful.
The ship was not what I excepted as I don't believe they had enough staff on board to take care of the 4500 people on board. My biggest complaint is the pools. There is never room in the pool and if you do find a spot there are kids trying to snorkel and splashes water all over you. They need an adult only pool in the serenity area or put kids in the pool on the back. Another idea I had was the take all that design out beside the pool and open the pool up to that size. The Steakhouse is amazing, best steak ever had with the 5 seasonings added.
We really enjoyed our time on the Dream!
