August 2015 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Western
Our 7 day cruise on the Carnival Dream was a great family vacation. It was the first time our kids had been on a cruise so everything was a new experience for them. Cabin on Riviera deck was big enough for 5 people and quiet except when docking at ports. The islands we stopped at were beautiful and very friendly. We did two excursions which worked out well. I would definitely recommend them. The staff on board the Dream was friendly and helpful. The food was good for the most part, except for the long lines for the deli and grill. The buffet was okay but not really a large variety and the desserts were not great.
The pools were way too small for a ship this size, which was very disappointing. The onboard activities were okay, but most of them seemed like the cruise line was trying to get you to buy more stuff, which became very annoying.
