The Carnival Dream Cruise

Sail Date: November 20, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

We recently sailed on the Carnival Dream to the Caribbean. The ship is beautiful and the crew were great. We especially enjoyed the comedy performances and the hyptonist. We had expected that there would be an early eveniing show for those who had signed up for the 8:15 dinner, but found (after arrival ) that we would have to attend a 10:30 show since the first show was while we were eating. We had requested the 6:15 dinner since we had six grandchildren with us, only to find that it was filled.We had previously sailed with Royal Caribbean and Disney, and the food at dinner was much, much better on both ocassions than the food on this trip.

Pros: Beautiful ship, courteous and helpful crew.

Cons: Quality of :food at"dinner" meals was poor. "Shows were okay but not exceptional.

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

Food and Dining
The best meal we had on board was a lunch at the pasta bar one day. Went back the next day to try to repeat the performance only to be told that there would be a 45 minute wait for lunch. You should enlarge the pasta bar or send those cooks to handle the main dining room.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Also took a tour of St. Marten and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a beautiful island.
Don't Miss: The airport at St. Marten where the incoming planes provide an additiona breeze to the sun bathers.
Nassau, Bahamas
Hsad been to Nassau before and didn't find it very interesting. Didn't get off the boat this trip for that reason.
