Review summary

I was with 3 family members on this cruise and we all agreed this was a great cruise - the weather was perfect and the water so smooth you could barely feel the movement of the ship. We all love the Dream and even though we have been to all the stops several times we always find something new. It would be great if you could add another port so we had to spend less time on the water. With the 4 of us we have at least 150 cruises so we are seasoned travelers and hope to do several more with the next one being this fall.

we had seen all the shows before and didn't go to the main shows but enjoyed the music around the ship. The newlywed game is always the highlight of the trip.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Evangeline, my room stewardess, was one of the top 3 of any cruise I have been on (I have been on 40 cruises on several different lines). She was kind, caring, and competent and did her job above and beyond what I expected.

Ship Quality

This was my 6th cruise on Carnival Dream and I love this ship. Easy to get around on and comfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom

Evangeline kept it clean and I knew what to expect on size. It was a comfortable room and since I was by myself, had lots of room and plenty of closet and drawer space.

Ship tip

You will be amazed by the ship - its size, decor, and layout. It is my favorite ship of any I have been on.

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

5 out of 5
We embarked from New Orleans so drove straight to the port and when we got off ship drove straight home. I really like the enclosed parking garage.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

This is a beautiful port and the walk down to the beach was fantastic. I did not do an excursion but my nieces really love the beach there.

Belize City, Belize

We did the Myan ruins and it rained during our tour there but I really enjoyed the ride there and back. Our tour guide was fantastic - knowledgeable and fun.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
I did not do an excursion but just walked down to the shopping area and enjoyed being out in the sunshine and watching people. A nice walk there and back and get a good overall look at the ship from a distance. I probably have been there at least 25 times so have done all the excursions I am interested in.

This was the best disembarkation we have ever had. We had just entered the Crimson dining room when they started letting people off so we did not even set down. Everything about the disembarkation was fast and organized.
