Western Caribbean on the Carnival Dream was an incredible trip. Ship was beautiful\, staff was incredible\, food was delicious and the rooms were spacious and very comfortable. This was our second cruise\, but our first 7-day cruise and can't wait to do it again. the weather in December is great for the destinations we visited. It was more than we expected!!!!
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
delicious food:) great variety. Just wished they had more chocolate options in the dining room area. The waiters that took care of us were amazing (we will never forget Thutisa\, Crisologo and Mantas. Also Rachel the Hostess). They provided exceptional service. Little important details to me like\, bringing coffee to our table the way we liked it\, cutting the kids steak\, being funny and courteous and extremely accommodating. Just absolutely exceptional staff.

all destinations were great. Our least preferred excursion was the Mayan ruins in Cozumel\, Mexico. We expected to see pyramids\, but there were none in the areas we visited. Cave tubing is a must in Belize. Roatan was our favorite destination. We decided to stay by the beach all day because of the scenery and convenience. Costa Maya was too short of a stay to appreciate\, so we stayed in the shops at the port\, but still had a great time.
Service and Staff

we were very impressed with the staff. They wen't above and beyond our expectations. Guest services was very helpful and the rest of the staff was very informative and always available to answer our questions with a friendly smile.

loved the space in this ship. There was always space to relax and enjoy the outdoors or enjoy listening to live music inside. The Encore show room was beautiful. This is definitely a fun ship and loved how clean it was kept at all times.
Cabin / Stateroom

very very comfortable. Plenty of space to store things. Housekeeping crew was wonderful\, they kept the room clean at all time and loved the towel designs they made with the towels. We were in the 1st floor(Riviera Deck) and really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend staying in one of the middle rooms(you don't feel the rocking of the boat).
