Explanation: The Oxford-Hachette has the following for schw♪remen:
(begeistert sein) für jmdn./etw. schwärmen be mad about or really keen on sb./sth.; sie schwärmt für ihren Skilehrer she has a crush on
her skiing instructor (sl.); von etw. schwärmen go into raptures about sth.; ins Schwärmen geraten go into raptures
93 per cent of those questioned went into raptures at the mere mention of the term.
Don't like that very much, but it should give you the meaning ... you can adapt it to suit the context!

Explanation: No, in this context, 'get carried away' or 'go into raptures' is a too strong term.
When they hear the definition, they simply "start dreaming".
That would be, in my opinion, more accurate.
