Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean and beautiful. The views were breathtaking. One should bring a room clock and/or watch since there are only 3 clocks anywhere on the ship and a schedule for everything including food stations. This was very frustrating at first, but you learn the layout quickly. The breakfast buffet was great and the Tandoori and Mongolian Grill were the best daily food on the boat. All else was mediocre at best except for the Steakhouse which was phenominal at and extra $30/pp. Room service was aweful, never correct (lox without bagel, cereal without a bowl, ordered pretzels got potato chips). Overall would do again knowing what I know now.

Pros: Slept very well, rocked to sleep by the waves....

Cons: Room Service

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Food and Dining
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony is worth it
Service and Staff
Very friendly but less than eager to wait on you with a quickness since tips are automatically added to bar bills.
Children's Programs
I had no kids myself, but the facilities for age groups were great. Kids definately loved the cruise.
Nassau, Bahamas
We only walked around.
Don't Miss: Nothing stood out for us.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We loved the port. Great shopping area and food choices.
Don't Miss: Bimini Breeze snorkel adventure was awesome.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Our See and Sea adventure was cut short because we couldn't go out to sea, bummer. The tour of the land was nice for seeing both sides of the island.
Don't Miss: Likely the beaches, but the tour was nice too.
