It was fun and the service was great. The cleanliness was wonderful and we want to go again. We would like to travel to Alaska the next time. We will definitely buy water for the trip

Great Cruise, but poor booking by regarding our Balcony stateroom certainly made it less memorable

Most of the cruise was excellent--but the balcony issue really messed up a lot of our enjoyment. not being able to enjoy our balcony due to its being over a heavily trafficked hot tub, and the resultant drunken rowdies really messed up the cruise. carnival personnel refused to get involved, saying we needed to talk to . First time using them, probably the last.

Carnival Dream was fantastic! The crew and staff did an excellent job, every day was fun. The overall logistics of running the ship was amazing. Everything was on time and exceeded our expectations. Great experience and we are looking forward to our next cruise.

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
