A decent cruise

Sail Date: September 10, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Elvis is very personable and accommodating, making the guests comfortable at the dining room. Most of the service staffs on the decks need to be trained to be more friendly and at least say hi to the guests when passing one another. The staff in charge of the ping pong tournament is just terrible. Not friendly and unenthusiastic.

Pros: Serenity

Cons: Food quality and the friendliness of some staffs

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Too late to enjoy the Legend show at 10:30pm
Food and Dining
Quality and variety of the food are not as good as at Conquest, both at the restaurant and at the Gathering. The food at the restaurant is usually served cold. A three member team like at the Conquest might help to speed up the service and warm food being served. Dining times Are good and convenient for the guests. Have to wait too long for the Mongolian Grill, usually half an hour. Add a little soya sauce to the Szechuan sauce and it will taste better.
Service and Staff
Many staffs are not as friendly as other ships. Half of them, especially the waiters who clean tables at the Gathering, don't even say hi when passing the guests. Our boardroom staffs are good.
Ship Quality
It seems like not having enough staff to clean up the mess left by the guests
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Good tour guide/diver. Good tour. Will enjoy more if we had two hours at the beach instead of one hour. We joined the island/ beach tour.
Don't Miss: Beach
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Never been on a tour when the driver/tour guard not saying a word on the bus during the tour. He couldn't even tell us the right place to meet him at the Post office. We joined the ultimate island experience tour. No idea what we saw along the way.
Nassau, Bahamas
The two tour guards are useless. The bus drivers are good.
