The Carnival Dream

Sail Date: June 05, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

This is supposed to be the newest ship in Carnival's fleet. Here's what we saw:
The hallways were narrow and tight for wheelchair bound guests;
There were noxious (bathroom) odors in some rooms and hallways;
elevators not big enough (said could hold no more than 18 person, but 11 was a squeeze);
We had a balcony room, but felt smaller than similar balcony room on Conquest or RCL ships;
Cabins were noisy (thin walls); we could hear people passing in hallways and about 3:30 every morning heard the kitchen crew come begin the preparation of breakfast in the buffet on the floor above us (we could also smell the bacon cooking around 6:00, not everything was bad;

Pros: Cabin attendant and dinner waitress were the best ever.

Cons: Ship had some design flaws; some of the staff acted like they wished they were anywhere but on the ship.

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.
