Exhausting Cruise

Sail Date: November 06, 2010

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Balcony has 5th deck extending about 20ft around ship so you have people walking, jogging, laying in sun and barbequeing going on under your balcony. No privacy or direct view to ocean. Long lines for everything. Having to walk from one end of ship to other to see shows after dinner, that did not accomodate all wanting to see them. Bigger isn't better. I will never sail the Dream or any ship this big again.

Pros: Entertainment, Food

Cons: Layout of whole ship from cabin selection to lack of room to accomodate number of passengers booked.

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

Ship Quality
Layout terrible. Too many long lines and rushing to get to shows that may or may not have seats available.
Food and Dining
Food was overall very good. Should place guests on end of ship where their room is. Very difficult for guests w/ ambulatory problems moving from one end of ship to other for eating and shows.
Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent stateroom and staff. Exception: Balcony! Would never pay additional for balcony on this ship.
Service and Staff
Staff friendly and accomodating.
Great shows and comedy club if you are able to get seats.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Same ole stuff. Souveniers and such. If you don't take an excursion, not much to see close by.
Nassau, Bahamas
Atlantis is pretty, but charges to see aquarium, and some areas. Last time I was in port it was free.
