    I haven't cruised her, but you have begun your research and know that it is small, by today's standards, Spanish owned ship, and though renovated, 20+ years old. I love the "classic" older ships but I know they are not everyone's taste.

    Smile Ocean Dream Cruise Ship

    I have to agree, I love the older ships, they have much more charm than the new modern ships of today. We took a cruise on a refurbished ship about 10 years ago and loved it. The refurbishing job is done so well, there are no tell tale signs that the ship is older, except for its charm and design. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    >>> "took a cruise on a refurbished ship"
    ----- I still look for one of the new ones. Took a cruise on a older one a few years ago and one of the turbines broke. The one port we took the cruise for was not reached because of the ship's slower speed.
    They gave everyone $100 in ship board credit. Big deal!
    They no doubt saved that much in fuel.

    Here is the whole story on the "Ocen Dream"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Star_(ship)

    It's really not all that old... I like the really old ships with the teak decks
    all around the ship.

    Pullmantur (a Spanish owned cruise line) will be begin sailing from Aruba in October on a southern Caribbean route.

    Announcements will be made in Spanish and English but the primary language spoken on board is Spanish.
    Restaurants following European customs such as a late seating of 10:15 pm for dinner.
