Carnival Dream - 7 night Western Caribbean

Sail Date: January 31, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The ship was full, but we never had an issue finding lounge chairs each day. Seems that people are getting a little too casual for dinner in the dining rooms on regular dinner nights - many people's attire was better suited for the Lido buffet than the Main dining rooms.

Weather was cold, overcast and windy on our last sailing day back to port - first time I realized how few TV channel options there are in the room - a couple more channel options would have been nice.

Cabin / Stateroom
Appreciated the morning cleaning and night time turndown service - which has changed to a choice between morning or evening room cleaning. Mini bar fridge in room didn't really keep things cold, it cooled them off but never achieved a status of cold. Would consider a oceanview cabin on a future cruise as the 2 bathrooms makes a wonderful difference. We had that on the Breeze.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Loved Honduras, been to Cozumel enough times.
Onboard Activities
Seems to be plenty to do onboard.
Children's Programs Didn't utilize on this trip.
Didn't make it to any of the variety shows, but enjoyed the comedy show.
Service and Staff
Brian - serving on the Serenity Deck, was fun and attentive with our small group all week.
Food and Dining
Quality of the food seems to have declined over the years. Would appreciate more Vegetarian dining options daily. Raw Juice Bar would be amazing to see onboard!
New Orleans, Louisiana
Arrived 10 days prior to Mardi Gras and the celebrations had already begun, we stayed in the French Quarter and are glad we did - everything is within walking distance.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Went scuba diving at Barefoot Cay Dive Resort - booked privately through the Resort. Mary's Place dive site is phenomenal!
Belize City, Belize
Would love to have gone diving but the excursion through the ship was cancelled - too late to book a dive privately. Walked around downtown and took a horse and carriage tour around the island for 60 mins. Snorkeling or Diving are the things to do in Belize.
Cozumel, Mexico
Seems Cozumel is a stop on every cruising itinerary so we've been there more than enough times within the last few years. Would like to see some other options instead of Cozumel.


Deli is the best lunch option - made fresh when you order. Fruit for breakfast is the fastest way to get fed, bypass the lines and the fruit is fresh cut and replenished as needed.
