Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

One of the largest ships in the Carnival fleet, the Dream delivers! Well laid out, plenty of things to do. Life in the lap of luxury!

Pros: Service, personnel, food, did I mention service?

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Children's Programs
Didn't really take advantage of the kids programs. My 12 year old daughter friended one of our dining table mates and they were pretty much at their leisure while on board. Plenty for them to do wothout causing any problems or being a nuisance to other passengers, allowing their parents to relax.
Ship Quality
The ship was extremely well kept. If it wasn't clean, it was being cleaned.
Food and Dining
The buffets were well stocked, excellent food quality. The dining room was even better. We had scheduled a Steakhouse dinner, but due to the extreme high quality of the dining room meals, I cancelled the Steakhouse reservation. The "didja" starters were amazing. Frog legs, Escargot, Shark frittters...thngs you may never have tried, maybe wanted to, were there for the sampling without risk. All were fantastic!
Cabin / Stateroom
The beds were comfortable, room to move around, and the room was tended to at least twice a day. The room stewards know your name from day one and address you by it all cruise when they see you. In the evenings, they place a towel, wrapped/folded in the shape of an animal on the bed, a very nice touch.
Service and Staff
Fillipe, our headwaiter, was "amazing" (a word he used quite often). Again, he kjnew your names from the first day, remembered how you liked your meals prepared. I really hated to leave because of Fillipe. He was the BEST!
Mostly attended the comedy shows, both the family friendly and the adult-only shows. Mike Macy, Jason Blanchard, and Tony Esposito (not the hockey player) were our favorites. It's nice they change acts during the cruise for variety. The "Thriller" dance lesson was a hit for both young and old alike.
