7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 18, 2016
Ship: Carnival Dream
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1447
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The service was really bad.  Took 30-45 minutes to get a drink and not very many waiters or waitresses.   I saw 2 waiters in one hour for approximately 100 people.  The cruise director was really bad. A lot of older people and no activities or music for them.  Only one show a night and that wasn't very good.  The food was above average and the food service ok.  We had to ask every night for extra butter you would think they would remember.  The room steward only showed up once a day and never put new towels at night or cleaned the mirrors from one day to next.  We had to make our own fun and did so we had a good time.  A couple of good bands but nothing for the 60-75 group.  I won't take a carnival crusie in the near future.  Royal Carribbean puts them to shame.
