The Dream is a very nicely appointed ship. The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. Food choices were plentiful and the quality was top notch. The ship's common areas were very clean, and the room stewards kept our rooms immaculate. There was plenty of entertainment accessible for all different taste levels. The ports of call, Nassau, St Thomas and St Martin were all great destinations with plenty of interesting tours offered by Carnival. I would recommend this cruise ship as well as the eastern Caribbean itinerary, with these notable exceptions; tour times were rushed, pool sizes not large enough and there was little to no Island music played on board.

Indian buffet and sushi bar were favorites


5 out of 5
Very Very disappointed that there was no Islandic music on board. Steel drums, Reggae and Soca were all absent.. A huge oversight neglecting this style of music on a Caribbean cruise!
