First timer and I would do it again! by ashleychavez3

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

I booked in April and traveled in August. I bought the protection plan for peace of mind. I did not get a drink package. At the end of our trip we added our drinks and it didn't come close to the package charge they were offering for one person. We booked 2 rooms with one adult in each room in case one adult wanted to buy one then the other wasn't obligated to buy it aswell. If 2 adults share a room, both adults have to purchase a drink package. Deck 9 is awesome! Great balcony view! We had 2 kids traveling with us & my 20 yr old sister. My friend and her family were just down the hall from us. Don't pack towels, carnival let's you take theirs off the ship but must return or they'll charhe you $22. Elegant night is a must! Over dress! I loved that I could do laundry. It didn't take long at all. Quick machines. Take water shoes for port days! I would cruise again!

Family Cruise by Cruiser36338068

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Lorraine Larrew is the best hands down! She made this while vacation possible and as stress free as it can get. She stay on top of everything from the start of planning until after we returned. Best vacation I’ve ever had. Lorraine treated us like family.

Excellent cruise. The Dream was a pleasant surprise. Great crew, good food and entertainment. The only drawback being the short stay in Cozumel which made our shore excursion a rush. by pmolnar16

it could have only been worse if i died by emontg

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

1. Its unacceptable to have shoddy safety, but inexcusable to perpetuate lies about it. 2. Customer service is truly atrocious, there is no accountability for any employee or employee’s actions, and management is truly invisible. 3. Guests who take the time to voice dissatisfaction or point out specific service failures deserve a cogent response. 4. Surliness is not just tolerated but rampant and accepted and seemingly rewarded. 5. Entire employee base has focus that is completely, irrationally wrong – interested in charging for everything and collecting money on top of copious amounts already collected. And the more time employee’s assist passengers with already-paid for items the less they can continue unseemly money grubbing. 6. Security is woeful, interested only in lording inauthentic power of passengers rather than insuring their safety in an expedient manner. I want the report of Carily, immediately. 7. The color coded nature of the ship room cards, sign and sail, whatever they are is an abomination and idiotic and ensures horrific treatment to those deemed dispensable or not worth providing even a minute modicum of service. It is actually discrimination as I have discussed with the FMC. 8. When the Carnival Dream sinks, I would bet copious amounts of money that Giuseppe Giusa, Shane and Gary the Cruise Director will be on the first lifeboat away from the ship (identical to the Carnival captain in the sinking and deaths of 32 on board in 2012), giving the passengers their last middle finger from Carnival as they depart salvaging all the liquor on board 9. I would like to recognize two employees that went out of their way to provide excellent service and care to me (even though I was marked with the sign of the devil – a Blue Card). One worked in the Coffee Shop on the Fifth floor – he works long hours but always is friendly and efficient and FAIR with his serving of customers and went out of his way to provide excellent service. Similarly, Apple BZ who helped me both in the Gathering and at dinner in the Scarlett lounge was friendly, caring, went out of her way to help several times and always was smiling and conscientious.

Probably won't go on another by Brandon1983

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Probably won't ever go on another one. Unless we have a bigger group go with. My kids didn't want to go do anything because they didn't know anyone, they are a little on the shy side. The buffet was a joke for picky eaters. Even my non picky eaters really didn't have much to choose from that they even would eat except salad.

Wonderful dream turned to a nightmare by enewball12

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was great until I lost my Sail and Sign card on May 26, and was billed over 1000 dollars in merchandise. My banking account went into overdraft and I have had to dispute these charges. I have no idea who used the card that night and they had no authorization to use it. We are hoping that Carnival will cooperate with us

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The cruise director Gary was awesome he came the time on the ship a lot of fun. And Gary in Scarlet dining was awesome he always greeted us by our name and that made us feel welcome. Costa Maya with the dolphins were so much fun .

Great Crew - terrible Embarkation and Debarkation and the elevators did not work by allfornae

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The only major complaints were embarkation 4 hours and debarkation 3 hours. The other major complaint was elevators. We arrived on the ship not the normal gangway, but through where you exit/enter during excursions, so we were on floor zero. they had 3 elevators to take people up to the higher floors or you had to take the steps. I was with someone who could not take steps so we had to wait for the elevator and it took another hour to reach our room. I lost one full day on the ship getting on the ship. By the time we made it on board it was dinner time. During the stay they only had 3 elevators working in the FWD even though we had 9 elevators in this error. We had to start getting on the elevators going any direction up or down to be able to make it to our floor in a timely manner. This was the worst experience ever. This was my roommates first experience and she is disabled she will never do a cruise again. Getting of the ship was same only 3 elevators. 2 only took you to floor 2 and 1 took you to floor 1 and we had to catch another elevator to floor zero, another hour lost. I don't think I will ever use carnival again. The crew was great, but the long wait for elevators during the cruise and the long wait to get on and off the ship were so bad.
