We're hooked!

Sail Date: February 18, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Clean, great service, lots of options for entertainment, and lots of space & options for relaxation. This was our first cruise - so we thought we may have trouble figuring things out. The staff, announcements, & printed info were very helpful and organized. They made everything quick & easy. We were surprised by how easy it was to get on and off the ship for excursions, etc. We had a wonderful overall experience and will definitely cruise again with Carnival.

Pros: Incredible, helpful, friendly service throughout! We were really pampered.

Cons: Would have been nice to have an adults only swimming pool.

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Food and Dining
We really enjoyed much of the food - especially the seafood, pizza, salads, fruit, & omelets. Some items, particularly desserts, were not great. But we certainly found enough that we enjoyed. (Now have to work off the extra 4 lbs of weight I picked up!)
Ship Quality
I don't know how they keep everything so clean! Great staff!
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an interior room. It was larger than we expected, with great storage space. Beds were comfortable. (Many hotel beds result in back pain for me - no problems at all on the ship.)
Service and Staff
WONDERFUL service - and always with a smile! Best service we have ever experienced on vacation.
We enjoyed the comedy shows and movies on the deck. There were many other things to do - but we were in relaxation mode - and didn't get to many of the shows/activities that required actually removing ourselves from a deck chair!
