January 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Dream
Great Winter Getaway
Weather, which Carnival of course has no control over, was the worst part of the trip. We only had 3 days of nice tropical weather. It was quite windy and chilly the rest of the time. Strong winds created a lot of movement on the ship.
That said, the ship itself is outstanding! Lots more food options than the last cruise we took (12 years ago). The spa was wonderful. Also greatly enjoyed the spa sun deck, where only adults are allowed.
We had an interior cabin to save money, as we spend little time in the cabin. The bed was very comfortable. My husband was sick one day and we pretty much did stay in the cabin, but we were very comfortable.
