A nice Christmas cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The waterworks water slides were fantastic. Very friendly staff. The ship was very large but we were always able to find somewhere to lay in the sun. We cruised over Christmas and it was packed with passengers so I think that says a lot.

Pros: Camp Carnival was fantastic for our kids! Ports were wonderful!

Cons: Food in main dining room not very great at all. Like cafeteria food.

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cleanliness was amazing! The public restroom areas were well kept - even the overused one by the pool.
Food and Dining
This is my only disappointment about this cruise. This is our 7th cruise and by far this was the worse quality of food we've ever experienced on a cruise. The service in the dining areas was great but the food quality was comparable to hospital cafeteria dining. Things were soggy that were supposed to be crisp. The selection was not what it used to be. No escargot. Fried shrimp was offered 3 times on the featured menu! No variety. The steak was not quality. It was very disappointing.
Cabin / Stateroom
Large stateroom even though we booked the cheapest oceanview they had. Very comfortable beds!
Service and Staff
Staff was amazing. On our dining room table they placed a dish of margarine for our bread. My husband dislikes margarine and prefers butter. The waiter brought us butter that evening and every night after without us asking! Little things like that make a quality experience.
Children's Programs
Camp Carnival was a blast for our kids ages 10 and 8! It was their favorite part of the cruise!
