7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 17, 2014
Ship: Carnival Dream
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship was beautiful, the crew was amazing, the food was delicious, entertainment was first class... Debarkation for excursions - unpleasant. Would recommend this cruise and ship, just plan on cattle call experience for the excursions. I also booked independent excursions - mistake. The times did not work well with the cruise line and after the cruise I learned carnival has price guarantee.

Ship Tip

Enjoy a sit down breakfast. Great way to meet wonderful people and get pointers from seasoned cruisers. Skip the Mongolian station - took an hour.

Spend a day or 2 before you board - rented segways - a great way to see New Orleans
