Carnival Dream is the first of the Dream-class ships, which are among the largest in Carnival’s fleet. Debuting in 2009, the Dream now sails year-round to the Caribbean from New Orleans. New cruisers and loyal fans of Carnival will be delighted to find some of Carnival’s most popular restaurants and bars including Guy’s Burger Joint, Guy’s Pig & Anchor BBQ, the RedFrog Rum Bar, the pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, and the poolside Mexican eatery BlueIguana Cantina. Activities abound on this fun-filled ship too: those with a knack for showmanship can participate in Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, or the “board games come to life” game show by Hasbro. Kids will enjoy the onboard WaterWorks aqua park with waterslides and Camp Ocean youth clubs, while adults can escape for some quiet time in the adults-only Serenity area or the Cloud 9 Spa. With a whopping passenger capacity of 3,646 guests, Carnival Dream only recently surrendered the title of “Largest Carnival Ship” in 2016 to Carnival Vista.

I was very disappointed in the Buffet. by mindun42

I was very disappointed in the Buffet. The food seemed to be recycled from the prior night Dining Rooms. They painted the ship at every port, so 3 of our days, we couldn't use our Balcony.

A Wonderfully Relaxing Experience by Denise313

The Cloud 9 Spa is nice — but it’s not as nice as the one on the Carnival Magic. Our cruise director Lee was great. The comedy was great as well. The debarkatiom process could have been a little more organized. But overall, this was a great cruise at a reasonable rate.

Try visiting the barbecue section on the ship for lunch. The food is a welcomed change.

Eat dinner around 6pm so you can go to the show after and then go straight to the comedy club after the show. They really have the timing right on when shows start so you don't have to miss anything. Relax and let people do stuff for you.

Get out to the 10th deck early to get a seat by the pool at night to watch movies
