"my trip"

I would love to say what a beautiful experience I had on this ship cruising around my country by sea. the crew always smiled and greeted me like I was important . My cabin was a good size with a balcony I loved it and the bed was cosy . The boy who cleaned my room was so attentive and friendly he was very spotless thank you. I loved all the entertainment I could see the most beautiful costumes and crew dancing and singing wow was so impressive. The captain well I enjoyed his consultation with us passengers he was awesome. The price of my trip was well worth it. I intend to come again next year with friends .I am going to advertise your amazing ship and voyage to everyone on my facebook.

"Good value all over"

We have been not expecting anything as it was our first cruise ever...saying that, we don't think that there was anything that needs improving vastly. Staff was very friendly and helpful, food was plentiful and always good with plenty of choices for everyone. Cabin was clean and comfortable, serviced at least twice a day. Entertainment outstanding. The staff was trying their very best with a smile and nothing was too much. As it goes for pricing...there are many different deals out there and it pays to shop around. It was a great cruise and we are wanting to go again soon

"A touch of class on a budget price"

Decided to take a last minute break and cruise around New Zealand on the Explorer Dream (a new addition to our shores). I was not quite sure what to expect as some of the reviews I read before sailing weren't the best. However, any apprehension I had felt disappeared the moment I boarded the ship. The crew were amazingly helpful and always smiling despite their onerous task of tending to the myriad of requests and expectations of the passengers. Food was a mixture of Asian and Western styles depending where you dined, menus were changed for each service and were fresh and delicious. We were totally spoilt for choice. Everywhere you went, including cabins, were spotlessly clean and it seemed there was a continuous rota to keep every surface pristine. Cabins were beautifully furnished with superb bedding provided. Cabins were replenished daily with body lotion, shampoo & conditioner, coffee & tea making supplies. The kettle supplied in each cabin was an added bonus especially in the early morning and late in the evening. Entertainment was superb, something for everyone, and I must say that the daily shows were breathtaking ... World Class! A fantastic entry into our market and I'm sure that next season will be even better ... if that's even possible. Of special note was the question time with the captain and a clip at the end of our voyage to thank us all for cruising with Dream Cruises.

"Explorer Dream"

We have cruised with other companies, and took this trip for our Golden Wedding Anniversary. The crew were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and the evening shows were terrific. Food at the buffet was on a par with other cruise lines, and the main dining room was excellent. Our cabin was a disappointment. It was a lot smaller than we expected. We had a balcony cabin which was quite cramped. A fold out bed settee was right up against one side of the bed so I had to climb across it to get in and out of bed. It was not extended as we did not need it. There were tea making facilities and 2 free bottles of water daily. Also some lovely accessories in the bathroom. However we found out after we returned to Auckland that there should have been free slippers for everyone and we had not been given any. These should have been in the cabin before we arrived. Also no info re laundry service or room service. Onboard credit was only for specific things, which surprised me as on other lines it covered anything that you purchased onboard. As we did not see the sounds due to bad weather, every cabin was given $100.00 obc.. They did not connect my account with my husband's which is always done on other ships, so he got the credit and I got a bill. It took quite a while to get them to join it, although I believe that other people did not have the same problem. It depended on who you got at reception. The 2 artists onboard were excellent and we had our portraits done. I would only travel on this ship again if I could get a balcony as the other rooms were smaller still. It would have to be a cheap deal.
