This was my second cruise aboard Carnival Dream but 5th cruise overall and I have to admit I was very disappointed this time. My husband and I were most disappointed in the food, he had only one meal he enjoyed but I had none. The dos was what I was probably most looking forward to, but I was completely let down. One night we ordered the Bolganese Lasagna and the meat was raw, other tables around us were complaining as well. Although they did offer to bring another dish I was so disgusted I didn't want anything else. The 24 hour room service menu was disappointing as well. There are a few sandwiches on the menu but if you want pizza or quesadilla or a couple of other choices you had to pay extra. The lines in the buffet dining choice (the gathering) were ridiculously long, I have never waited so long in any line on any other ship before, even on much bigger ships. The two pools on the ship are small and so overcrowded I didn't even consider using them. If you want a lounge chair to lay out on a sea day you better get up at 7:30 am and get it then otherwise there will be no chairs available, and if you want to use Serenity area (adults only area) you need to be there even earlier. The entertainment was good, we did enjoy the comedy shows. The service in the main dining hall and stateroom steward were also very disappointing. I will definitely be cruising with Royal Caribbean from now on
