7 Night Eastern Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 22, 2015
Ship: Carnival Dream
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 10266
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago


Had a wonderful view on our 10th floor balcony by the Lido deck.  Food buffet and pool were on the same deck. 2-floors up was the gym and spa. Rhino took good care of our room and made sure the room was fresh 2x a day.  The couple on our next door were chain smokers.  They'll be smoking on the balcony and the smoke and ashes would fly through our balcony.  Had to report them to Carnival.

Next, the nightly dance and music shows (3-nights) were magnificent and entertaining.  The comedy bar was funny except for that one comedian who makes racist jokes, made fun of the Canadian national anthem right in front of a Canadian citizen and especially insults african-american men.  I understand comedy bar are full of sex jokes and I'm fine with that, but insulting cruise guests directly at their faces due to its race, color, religion and nationality is not what we paid that cruise for. 

It was a huge ship and very well maintained ship.  Had several jacuzzis in the different areas of the ship.  Water slides is ok but nothing fancy.  Only had 2 salt water pools for a ship with over 3500 guests on board.  

Spa was wonderful and an ideal place to get away from the crowd.  The steam rooms was wonderful. You get to use the spa facilities the entire day for only $40, very reasonable price.

Pick a room located in the Lido deck (10th floor). Very convent location for food and the pool area. You don't need to wait for the elevator or use the stairs when you feel hungry.

Take the private island beach day from Carnival. Only costs $44 for adults. The island is right next to Sandals beach.
