Ship: Carnival Dream
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship is well laid out. Staterooms are larger than those on Princess or Royal Caribbean. The dining options were wonderful (deli, pizza, international, Mongolian BBQ, pasta bar, sushi bar, popcorn, sandwich bar, etc., etc. The food was much better than our last Royal Caribbean trip. The entertainment was fair. 2 of 4 comedians were not that clever. Ship's production numbers were ambitious and performed as choreographed, but were not that appealing. Piano player was fun. Daily combo and other performers were consistently good.

Service and Staff

Carnival's training is not as good as Royal Caribbean/Celebrity, but the staff was helpful and efficient.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
It's a shame; she's a large and well-plannel ship, but the decor is wholly unimpressive. Part of the grandeur of cruising is the beauty of your surroundings and the clever/beautiful ways the ship's areas are designed. The Carnival Dream is, well, "cheesey."

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Chose an inside cabin for a change ... had 3 large closets!

Pros: The options for food were many, and the quality of the food was very good.

Cons: The ship's decor is quite cheesey.

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.
