7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 13, 2015
Ship: Carnival Dream
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9407
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was our second cruise, first time with Carnival.  Our room attendant was not very attentive, the last 3 nights we did not get a turn down in our room so missed out on that personal evening touch (& clean towels).  But the biggest issue was the awful sewer smell that periodically swept across our cabin.  When I inquired I was told that our cabin and the one next to us were known to have this issue so pellets of some sort were put down to alleviate the smell (they did not work well).  Needless to say this was not good and ruined what could have been a very good cruise.  Guest services did not seem too concerned when we told them?

Cabin / Stateroom

Horrible sewer smell in our cabin during most of the cruise. Told guest services who offered little help. Placing down pellets did not work so we endured the discomfort. We paid for a balcony cabin and felt we did not get our moneys worth.
