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.

We had such a good time! This was our firat cruise, and I think we were not prepared, but we learned a lot. Cozumel was our favorite, followed by Honduras. I think we would have enjoyed Belize and Costa Maya if we had booked excursions. Overall, it was a fantastic experience!

Awesome Cruise by kewast

Overall, this was an awesome cruise, as most cruises are. This was the 1st cruise that I can remember where the Captain actually used the speaker system to tell the guests about the cruising weather, cruising speed, destination weather etc. Overall, the ship was clean and appeared to be well maintained. There were many options for food and most of it was really good. The entertainment was also good and there was enough variety for everyone. I especially liked the itinerary as most of destinations were not far apart which allowed the Captain and crew to choose cruising speeds that provided a smooth, comfortable ride.

Do not put a credit card on your account. make sure when you book your cruise that you add the gratuity in it. They will over charge you if you don't. My husband is fighting with Carnival now because of this.

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
