Sailed on the Dream, it is a nice looking ship from the outside, however once onboard it is not laid out very well, many decks had no way of getting from one end of the ship to the other. If you take deck 5 you have to pass through the smoke filled casino, which is not something I enjoy doing with a 2 year old. Carnival gave us a discount but it turns out we chose the wrong cabin, 2nd aft which was under the 24hr Galley. We required ear plugs every night and on a number of nights the noise was above what the ear plugs could cover.

Pros: Getting away from it all

Cons: Very Noisy Cabin, One bad Excursion

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

Ship Quality
The ship is a nice ship however it was not laid out very well, there is no flow and getting around the decks took thought eveytime.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Decor, amenities, comfort and condition were good. Location and Noise were the bad points. We were on 2nd deck aft, under the 24hr Galley, had to sleep with earplugs, noise was above what they could cover on many nights.
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Nassau, Bahamas
Mainly just took in the shopping right off the baot
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Snorkling excursion was poor
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Don't Miss: Megahn's Bay was Great, So were the 99 Steps
