Carnival Dream

August 2017 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Dream

Very, very nice cruise overall!!

Had a great time and got lucky with the weather. Ship was great and ports of call with excursions were a lot of fun. For first time daughter participated in the teen club which she absolutely LOVED.

The ship and it's crew were absolutely fantastic...hospitable, clean and efficient.

Strongly suggest purchasing the additional 4 restaurant package as the specialty restaurants are absolutely wonderful. Best of any cruise we've ever enjoyed.

Overall, we had a very relaxing time aboard this ship, however if you are going to bring children this is clearly not the cruise for them. (We did not)  We were a little bored by about day five but managed just fine.

Overall, loved it. The crew, from officers to stewards make you feel welcome every minute that you are onboard and clearly reflect a positive attitude toward their careers in hospitality.

rbarnes06477's Tips

Montego Bay, Jamaica - Yes...beach break. Too many people trying to peddle services on you, offered drugs, etc...
Carnival Dream Carnival Dream - If you need to disembark quickly make sure to do the carry your own luggage option... We were on the highway by 8:30am!
Celebrity Silhouette Celebrity Silhouette - Upgrade to the 4 restaurant package if you can..you won't regret it! We found that all of the restaurants were as good as some of the best restaurants on land, and overall the food quality aboard celebrity is certainly a step above other comparable cruise lines.
Miami, Florida - Absolutely love Miami's energy and culture. Always have.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Port is awesome. Stay there and explore..great pool with swim-up bar while watching dolphins swim in the Dolphin Encounter
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Try to enjoy breakfast plated option in the dining room if you can..much better than buffets on Lido. Steakhouse is EXCEPTIONAL. Do not miss this option! I've never been let down on any carnival ship. Get to the Lido deck early (9am) if you want to sit poolside on days at sea!!
