Carnival Dream

July 2016 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Eastern

Great cruise - too much noise and disrespect

The Carnival Dream is a nice ship and her crew are excellent.  We were very well looked after, our cabin was spacious and well-appointed, and the food was good (especially at dinner, buffet quality a bit less so).  However, there is almost nowhere quiet on this boat - even the adults-only Serenity Deck is right below the water slides and frequently occupied by noisy adults!  Unfortunately we were also joined by a significant number of ignorant, rude passengers who failed to respect any concept of personal space; their noise and crude language was frankly an embarrassment to America and I wish my kids hadn't had to experience it (although it gave me ample chance to teach them some lessons in being respectful and what are unacceptable behaviors in public)

mattbell44's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Book a decent tour and there's plenty to see. Glass-bottomed boat isn't worth the money.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Not much to see or do here ... we booked a beach trip to Paradise Cove, which turned out to be great for snorkelling but nothing special for a beach.
Key West, Florida - Unfortunately it was 95F (with heat index at 115F) when we visited, so we had to limit the amount of walking. Allow plenty of time if you want a photo taken at the southern-most point, since the lines get long!
New Orleans, Louisiana - Parking at the cruise terminal is very convenient, although it costs $140 for the week.
Carnival Dream Carnival Dream - Take a pair of noise-cancelling headphones with you if you like to sit around on deck and read ... there is very little open deck space that's quiet.
