Carnival Dream

Sail Date: January 15, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall there were just too many people on this ship, way too crowded. There were lines for everything, but meals in particular. People lined up well in advance of meal times so coming early wouldn't help. There were also not nearly enough places to sit during the days at sea. We brought three small children with us and it would have been really helpful if the camp carnival had open play times for the under 2 age group a little more often. During the entire trip the play area was only open for that age group for 6 hours. There was no place for her to crawl around the rest of the time.

Pros: the slides

Cons: the long waits

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

Food and Dining
Our waiter at dinner was incredibly slow. We had 6pm seating and didn't get our food until 7:15 at the earliest!
Children's Programs
No good for crawlers.
Ship Quality
The layout is too confusing. On many floors you have to walk up a floor over and back down to get to another part of the ship. Annoying.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
