Exceeded every expectation

Sail Date: September 01, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Carnival Dream was excellent. We were not looking forward to such a large ship but after a week we changed our minds. The stewards were terrific (Wayan and Made'). Whenever we asked for something they took care of it immediately and were always friendly.
We ate at the buffet a couple of times but the food was so-so (dinner. Breakfast was fine). In the restaurant it was excellent and our waiter (Adi) was nothing short of fantastic. Great service and entertaining too.

Pros: Food (restaurant)\, service and excursions were great

Cons: buffet food not as good as Golden Coral

Recommends Carnival Dream? Yes!

Ship Quality
Colorful\, very very clean. Saw several people in wheelchairs and they were able to move about easily with special seating and crew help in the restaurants. Carnival did a great job for them.
Food and Dining
The Crimson restaurant is where we ate nightly and it was excellent. Breakfast buffet was fine but dinner buffet not so much.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very modern look in fine condition
Service and Staff
I've already mentioned the stewards and our waiter of choice (we always asked for him). Everyone else on the ship staff was very helpful and accommodating.
The stage shows were generally excellent with a talented cast. Comedy club was a hoot. Piano bar singers were so-so.
