Good for what we paid for it

Sail Date: July 07, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Overall, the ship was very nice and clean. The stewards were very attentive, and the rooms were always clean. The ports of call were all interesting, and the only complaint I have is that I would have liked more time in Costa Maya, Mexico.

Pros: The water slides and serenity deck

Cons: The food service was slow\, and the food itself was more quantity than quality.

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship itself was well-kept and very nice. The water slides and pool areas were clean\, and the decor was pleasant (if a bit gaudy in some areas).
Food and Dining
The food was not as good as I had expected from other Carnival cruises I have been on. It was unexceptional\, and the service in the Scarlet Dining Room was rather slow.
Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms were pretty big for a cruise ship\, and our steward\, Lidia\, was the best! She was super helpful and enthusiastic!
Service and Staff
Besides our wonderful steward\, most of the staff was ok. They seemed un-enthused in the dining room.
The cruise director\, Corey\, was very fun and friendly\, and ran a good program. He was genuinely enthusiastic about his job. We also really enjoyed the members of the Fun Force (the break dancing group onboard). They were always in great spirits\, ran a lot of fun activities\, and were entertaining.
