Too many passengers

Sail Date: January 05, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The cruise was fully booked the line ups for food at the buffet breakfast lunch and dinner were long with kids running about because it took too long to get your food and get a seat if you were fortunate to get a table to sit. The noise at the buffet was ear shattering with over 3000 people trying to get their food all at once .If carnival says it can handle more than 3500 passengers on the DREAM it cannot certainly no to everyone's liking.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras unable to dock due to weather


If at all possible eat every meal in the dining room and skip the long lines and excessive noise at feeding time on the lido deck.
