A Disappointment

Sail Date: June 12, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Very boxy; I felt caged in. The ceilings were low, the decor was very dark

Pros: Comedy shows

Cons: lack of actvities

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

Ship Quality
the layout was poor but public areas were clean
The planned activities on ship were not very good or well planned. The laser show was lame, the movies old and the sound awful. The dance shows were more like high school performances, although the dancers worked very hard with the material given
Children's Programs
Terrible! Awful! My kids hated Cirle C. The was nothing to do and usually there was no supervision. Very lame! What schedule? I received a schedule from the Circle C supervisor but the staff was never in attendance when I visited with my kids
Food and Dining
The food served in the dining room was very good but the buffets were only fair. The service in the dining could be improved. Our waitress was excellent but her assistant, or busboy, was lacking. The variety served in the main dining was fair and the dessert menu was very limited
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Some members of the entertainment staff, mainly the cruise director's staff were sometimes crude, inappropriate and sarcastic (and not in a funny way).
Cozumel, Mexico
snorkeling at Club Cozumel Caribe was lame. Very rushed
Don't Miss: zip line fun
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Stay at the dock. Do not book an excursion. There is plently right at the dock. Jungle Beach Break was the worst EVER! Huge biting insects, beach is dirty, water filthy (found old wood planks with nails on beach at surf) food terrible and very expensive. $60 for 30min on waverunner.Drinks very watered down, terrible shopping
Don't Miss: stay at dock. Plenty to do. Do not book excursion
Belize City, Belize
The shopping was very commercial. Not a lot of native influence. Many items were made in CHINA
Don't Miss: scuba diving on the reef for beginers.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
anthony's key resort dolphin encounter was not one of the better encounters that I have been to.
Don't Miss: Tabayana beach club was great to snorkel at. Beach was clean, staff friendly. Best beach experience of this entire trip
