7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 15, 2014
Ship: Carnival Dream
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6480
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 4 years ago

I cannot say enough about the dining experience, the cleanliness of the ship and cabin and the professionalism of the staff.  However, I was very disappointed with our cabin and the noise that we could hear from the clubs directly under our cabin.  We heard the comedy show and singing as if they were performing in our room. If it was just my husband and i it might be ok seeing that on many nights it did not stop until 1:00AM. I had my duaghter with us and the content of what she heard coming from the comedy club was not appropriate for a minor to hear.  Needless to say she had to go to sleep with headphones on.  Carnival did give us some compension and we are in a good place with Carnival however, be warned the ship is great, just be careful where your room location is.  There are many open areas on the ship and the music, etc comes into your cabin, if you are a night owl you are great, if you wish to go to bed around 10/11 choose your cabin very carefully.
