September 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Dream
Prior to this cruise we had primarily been on 3 or 4 night cruises; with the last cruise being about15 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of our stateroom is was larger than the last time we cruised, in fact we had a king size bed, which my wife thought was a little stiff. We had a balcony stateroom which was nice, we spent quite a bit of time sitting out on the balcony with our wine/beer and enjoying the ocean. The food was okay but not seasoned very well so tasted somewhat bland. We had dinner one night at the Steakhouse, it cost and extra $35 per person but was well worth it, meal was excellent. Good comics in the comedy club and the shows were enjoyable. Stopped in Montego Bay, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel; if I cruise this way again would consider coming when it is less humid; being from California we were use to the heat but not the humidity. Excursions were fun, a good way to get an overview of the different islands. I would recommend this cruise as a good way to see the Western Caribbean.
