The carnival dream is a beautiful ship, however, with anything new, there are things that need to be addressed for me to want to return.1. The a/c in the room needs to be a consistant temp, should have a thermostat, so you can set your desired room temp. You are either warm or freezing. 2. There is no clock in the room, there needs to be a beside table clock, everything in the ship is timed, dinner, activities, etc and if you do not have a watch you have no idea what the correct time is, as all the ships clocks are different and need to be reset.3. Sound control, I stayed on the 9th floor, directly below the Lido deck, at night I heard the click.clacking of peoples footsteps, I could hear my neighbors TV through the wall, I could hear coughing through the door in the hallway. Sound barriers in the walls, floor and doors a poor quality.4. The ports of call stink on the Western Caribbean, there is nothing of interest to do in Roatan and Costa Maya. The port in Costa Maya is a tourist trap. Need to have a better route, I will never do a western Caribbean cruise with Carnival again.5. The activities on the boat at night are hit or miss.The opportunities for dancing begin too late. The Kareoke needs to be in a bigger room and the DJ needs to engage the crowd more to make it a more hip and fun experience. the last night of the cruise, there was absolutely nothing to do. The comics did the same shows from the night before, there was delays in time when one activity stopped before another activity started. Finally, please make the boat non smoking in any inside area and dedicated only certain outside areas for smoking.
As always, the service was great, the people who work on the ship are dedicated and very hard working, and friendly.
