Good Cruise for a family, not a romance

Sail Date: March 12, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

This ship was clean and the servers and cleaners worked really hard. The food was mediocre and I never had an amazing meal. I didn't pay the $30 to eat in the steakhouse, which is supposed to be better but I did go to the sit down meals every night. We did have a few things that were good but I was never blown away by anything I ate. Even though there were over 4,000 passengers we never felt like the ship was overly crowded. There were some lines but nothing too crazy.

Pros: The servers worked really hard

Cons: The food

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Food and Dining
The only thing really exceptional about the dininig was the Servers
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were simple and we had a inside cabin on the 2 floor, but it was really comfortable.
There were lots of things to do but the Singers on the ship and the main performers were horrible. We had a great comedian and the Casino was fun and they had a fun nightclub.
Ship Quality
Clean, which I appreciated. Even though this ship was new it was decorated like it was built in the 90's..kind of odd
Service and Staff
Would have given them a hirer score but the barteneders had poor attitudes!
Children's Programs
I don't have kids but they ALWAYS had something going on for them. Good thing since there were 1,000 kids on our ship because of spring break
Nassau, Bahamas
Fun to take a scooter around the Island!
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Go Scuba diving here! The waters are gorgeous!
