A great time

Sail Date: August 25, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Great ship and staff. Was clean. Nice staterooms. Main dining was good, but slow. Took two hours for dinner, so hard for our little ones to sit through. Large ship with lots to do, but expect to wait. We went in knowing this, but it was still annoying. The shows were ok. Wish there was more for the little ones in the evening to do. Mini golf, basket ball, etc were always busy.

Pros: large ship so we did not feel the rough waters\, even with a hurricane nearby. Food was good. Staff was wonderful. Clean ship.

Cons: Large ship so long lines and ran out of food in buffet lines\, which leaves you waiting. Basketball\, ping pong\, mini golf always busy. We still played but long lines. To be expected with a large boat. Wish there was a sign up or something.

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Wish there were more food options for kids. They ate the same thing all week\, which got old quickly. Side note: my kids have food allergies so it was a little harder for us. Just wish there were more options. They were very good to us and did make mac and cheese a few nights\, which was not on the kids menu. If you do not like beef or fish will be hard to find a meal for you. Wish there were more options for adults as well.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
All the staff members were excellent. All go above and beyond.
Children's Programs
My daughter liked camp carnival but wish it went longer. Only went for an hour here and there. Wish it was open longer as she spent the days with us.
