The Carnival Dream is an excellent choice!  We went with a family group of 15 and while we would meet up for certain activities, lunch or dinner, there were so many things all of us could do at our own pace.  The ages of our group ranged from 2yrs old to 73 years old and all of us were occupied whenever we chose to be.  This was the perfect vacation because some would need to nap in the afternoons, while some were enjoying the activities.  Some had to retire early to bed, and some stayed up to wee hours of the morning.  There is no comparison to the service we received aboard this ship!!  We had a small issue at the beginning with arrangements of our rooms and was accomodated to our satisfaction without any problems!!  Our seating arrangements for Dinner was a little mixed up, but upon our arrival to Dinner the 1st evening, we were accomodated to our satisfaction.  I can say that the CREW on Carnival Dream is ALWAYS there to meet the needs of the passengers!  Already planning to schedule next year!!!

While I didn't spend a lot of time in my room, the interior was ok, but next time I will try to book one with a balcony. The service was great, but we didn't see our attendant very often. Our room was always cleaned and ready when we returned, and anything we requested, by note (I might add), was always given to us.

The "hop on, hop off" bus option is wonderful!!! Loved the shopping, and the "market" is an experience everyone must have!!
