The Dream was more like a Nightmare

Sail Date: August 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship itself was not the problem. It was the number of people crammed on to the ship that made it less than ideal. There were long waits for buffet lines at lunch and breakfast. This was tough with four kids! The dinner service was painstakingly were lucky if you got a drink and a roll. The food was not very good.
The common areas were so room in the pool. The little kids could not go on the kiddie slides because teenagers were taking them over. Of course\, the teens also were too crowded in the pool so they needed somewhere to go!

Pros: Great frozen yogurt

Cons: Long lines for food\, the ship seemed understaffed for the amount of people on the ship

Recommends Carnival Dream? No.

Ship Quality
So many people made it tough for the staff to keep up with.
Food and Dining
Slow service...overall not great food. Again\, it seemed like the staff was overwhelmed.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
The kids were bored and did not want to return to Camp Carnival.
