January 2014 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Eastern
The 3 ports we visited were wonderful and the weather was what you would leave WI for in the winter! Many things to do and for all ages. Many children on board, however, never experienced any difficulty because of them - good kids - controlled by parents. Food was excellent, Enjoyed the sit-down breakfast or seaday brunch whenever we could. More leisurely than waiting in line up on 10! But, the food up on 10 is very good - it's just very crowded and finding a table not always easy! Staff very friendly everywhere. Did find the dining wait staff to not be as friendly with each other as we had experienced on other cruises, e.g. the Carnival Conquest - with the exception of the head waiter we had our last two nights. He and his assist staff made our dinners "fun." The casino was not at all to our liking. We like 3 reel slots and there were not enough of them. Too many $1 slots and too many video, picture slots, which we never play.. We did enjoy the waiters (particularly Wii) and the casino more on the Carnival Conquest.. .
