Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excelent. The quality and variety exceeded my expectations. The "Any Time Dining" was great for us.


3 out of 5
I took my family to 4 of the comedy shows and some were not quite as family friendly as I would have liked..."I wont let a boy turn my daughter into the tramp I turned her mother into"...comes to mind. Overall it was good entertainment. We did not see any of the big shows in the maind theatre.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Because the ages of my 3 boys fell within each of the program ages there was a program for each boy but none of them wanted to go without the other so they did not attend any of the programs.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was exceptional in their friendliness and willingness to serve. The staff in the resteraunt went above and beyond with some even learning our children's names.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was big but easy to get around once I learned the lay out. The public area were ok but the decor was not to my liking. bare breasted women drawn in the mural with youn boys was not what I was expecting after taking Disney cruise a few years ago.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was due to be refurbished. The couch cushiions sagged a little in 9-407 and the carpet was a little worn. I wish smoking was not allowed on the balcony as the people on either side smoked frequently on the balcony.

Pros: The food, and the destinations

Cons: Not enough information on the

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!
