Good Cruise

Sail Date: February 01, 2011

Room Type: Balcony

Overall it was a good cruise. Weather was a little chilly in the beginning, but the ship was very nice, very clean, and food was good. Since the ship is so big, there are a lot of people which means you do need patience in the lines for everything! I think Carnival had plenty of time to add one extra port of call rather than taking 2 days to get back to Port Canaveral. It seemed like we were moving exceptionally slow. The staff on the Dream did not seem as friendly as with other Carnival cruises we have taken in the past. No issue with any of them, it's just they did not seem real happy. Overall a good time.

Pros: Being at St. Maarten

Cons: Way too many people!

We had a very good time, taxi drivers were polite and Megan's Bay was beautiful although very crowded.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Beautiful port, friendly people and the town and beach was within walking distance. We definitely would have loved to stay here longer. Not sure why the cruise ships can not stay overnight, but this would have definitely been a great place to visit for more than a day!

Didn't really have long enough in port to shop and have time at the beach. We could have stayed longer here and it would have made it better.
