just another cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was just a bigger version of thier other ships, nothing special or spectacular. Atrium was narrow, pools where few and small, elevators where always busy expecially during embarkation due to staff locking out midship elevators for moving luggage, alcohol was removed from everyones luggage (even that special whiskey you like that you cannot get on the ship, first time in 7 cruises).Gratuities kill a family of 4 at 11.50 per person per day even for kids.
Bar drinks add up the stateroom account quick seing as they take every ounce of alcohol from your luggage, i would recommend the longisland it is worth the money.The hottubs where always cold and full of kids

Pros: staff was excellent

Cons: cruise director sucked

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

this ship had no special features, it is just a big boaring ship
