Good Cruise by rhclingenpeel

We enjoyed the ship and especially enjoyed our interactions with the crew. They were great. Would take another cruise, but probably different ports of call. I thought I was receiving Skymiles for this, but haven't seen anything yet.

The Dream was a dream by letscook323

Can't wait to go on the Dream again. This was an amazing ship. The Spa balcony was awesome. We enjoyed lots of time out there. It is great for a quiet getaway, reading nook, sun balcony, late night sky gazing or visiting while in port with other guests hanging over the balconies. Access to the Spa showers and the Spa area is very nice. We didn't use it as much as we thought we would but loved having the access. Also, Deck 11 is a great place to be. We were steps away from all the action and 1 elevator ride from the Main Lobby fun. We dined in the Scarlet dining room and loved our late dining. There is no hurry to leave the dining room and you can really enjoy your dinner, dessert and coffee after dinner. I can't wait to go on the Dream again.

Could have been better by amailmanswife

I waited a year for this cruise and unfortunately would not recommend The Dream if you wanted a true WOW factor for your vacation. The food was nothing to brag about and that was one of the things I was looking forward to. I remember the last cruise everyone made you feel special and that didn't happen on this cruise. I felt like just another person. The dining experience was just ok but our server was very sweet and she did a great job. Loved how she addressed everyone by name. I think the dining entertainment could have been better. The same thing was done every night. I sorry to be such a downer on this cruise but I was really expecting so much more.

Not What I Expected by cacalhoun1923

I expected an exceptional cruise experience on the "Dream", but the service and food just wasn't as good as the Carnival cruises we've taken in the past. On the plus side the Dr. Seuss Breakfast was enjoyed by all and the service during this event was exceptional.

It all went so fast!!!!! Fun started at breakfast and lasted the whole day. Belize was great with nice people and an interesting history. I can not say enough good things about the crew. I felt like I did not have to ask for anything. The couple days at sea were very relaxing and gave a good excused to dress up for dinner.

Not As Nice As I Expected by Felisa76

It was ok. I was actually a little disappointed. This was not the cruiseline I had come to know and love. The casino only had one craps table despite it being one of the more popular games and the smoke was out of control. We were given a drink coupon for being Gold members but could only use it on the last night.

We loved our cruise. Everything and everyone was fantastic. We have no complaints. We were disappointed that we were not able to go to Jamaica, but that was Mother Natures fault, not Carnivals.

Our first cruise was amazing! by davidbradshaw

Over all a super good experience. The Spa staff is disturbing in the claims they make (I work for a clinical research organization), in fact I may take a hidden camera to some video of the Spa seminars if I ever go on another cruise, and forward the evidence to the FDA. I also found the mandatory gratuities to be inflated an unconscionable in how they withheld them and attempted to charge my credit card for them without my permission.

Terrible Caribbean cruise by farmercruiser

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We considered the cruise very poor for many reasons expanded upon above. we wont be back to Carnival. Just to many screw ups and poor judgment by Captain and company that ruined our cruise and tours. Also there was essentially no entertainment for the older crowd. The Scots, Chris, was oriented for the young crowd with hip hop music and games. Also too many activities in smoking areas.

Great cruise to relax on. by ps83916625958

For the most part the cruise as a whole was great. We had a few complaints about the buffet and beverages or lack there of but it was a nice vacation. Would cruise again (unsure if it will be Carnival) but will read ALL of the small print. I didn't like the $90.00 per person gratuity charge I would rather the choice be my own.

Trip was ok by GingerCruiser

It was disappointing due to the dinning service and bar service, and Spa, and horrible neighbors. I could not recommend the cruise to you. Two of the three ports are great but Belize needs a lot of improvement. I was extremely disappointed with the spa. I feel I did not get what I paid for. The dinning food was great but the service was the worst I have ever had on a Carnival cruise.
