Review Summary

Our group of 4, with 2 couples have been on many cruises prior to this.  My wife and I have mainly cruised on NCL while the other couple cruised on Royal Carribean.  The ship (Dream) was OK but not as organized as we were used to.  We had a good time but we seemed to agree that the entertainment and variety of foods available were definitly below what we were accustomed to.  The cruise staff were all very polite and did their jobs well.  We always found a deck chair and we loved the mini golf.  Our major objection was the entertainment in that much of the music and dance was centered around Rap and if you took a census of the people onboard you'd find very few were inclined that way.  So bottom line is we enjoyed our cruise, the dinning room and itinerary but there were certain short comings that will probably keep us from another Carnival Cruise.
