Carnival Dream


Sail Date: March 26, 2011

Ship: Carnival Dream

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Review Summary

I personally do not feel that bigger is better with ships. While it is a beautiful ship, too many people and not enough space for them all at meal times and pool times. There needs to be an enforced no kids pool and hot tub area, this is not and there is hardly an opportunity to find one that is not full of kids and no adult supervision of thier behavior. Food was great in the restaurant but the buffet lines not so much. Same breakfast everyday and if you want an omelette plan to wait, ALOT!

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The dining room open eating time was great. We were not prepared to be refused to enter the dining room on what we thought was 'optional' dress on formal night. We were still nicely dressed with collared shirts and dress shorts and they would not allow us to eat, missed the lobster that we were looking so forward to!

Service and Staff

We took a water taxi over to get to one of these famous beaches. Once we were packed like sardines they took us across and dropped us off, no directions and the beach was over a mile away. Take a taxi next time, we ended up turning around and going back without seeing the beach.

Pros: The cleanliness of the ship.

Cons: The disorganization and long lines in the buffets. Some things I never got a chance to try the whole time, too long of a wait.

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!
