Most relaxing cruise ever but disappointed in adult on-board activites during at sea days and comments on the ports noted above.

Overall great experience. Just needed to leave a few elevators operational for people who wanted to get breakfast. We were in front of ship and to drag heavy luggage up stairs just to be able to find juice or coffee because we had to be out of our rooms for cleaning for next passengers

Overall great experience. We have been on NCL and RCCL and we would rank this boat 3rd, however, to be honest I couldn't tell a big difference between this one and the others. I love cruising and we had a great week for my husband's 50th birthday. Would do it again!

We would definitely book a cruise out of New Orleans again! The Dream was an excellent ship with great staff and food! Our next cruise will definitely be with Carnival!

It was an okay cruise. Excursions were fun, but ship activities were not. by racuff

Probably will not take another cruise with Carnival...the activities were no fun. I/we were bored after being on the ship for a day at sea. After being at sea for 2 1/2 days, I was about to pull my hair out! Most of the time, we went back to our cabin and watched tv...what few channels there were to watch.

enjoyable trip by proraly

we enjoyed our time on the ship. one of the main attractions of this itinerary is that you spend more time at sea than in ports of call, so you can be as active (or inactive) as you want, at little or no cost.

This was probably the best cruise so far and plan on many more in the future. It was a little ruff on the last day at sea we had 10ft swells and was a little rocky, but it was an awesome cruise.

Had A Good Time by kawanamerie

Wasn’t happy with all the elevators shut down at busy times and having to walk up flights of stairs with a knee injury. And somehow someone had my Folio number using it at the Photo checkout. But the charges where refunded. Other than that the trip was nice. I really enjoyed all the live shows and the cruise director was great!

Carnival dream Cruise was fun, buy ship could have been cleaner. by joanr50

Carnival Dream is a little hard to find your way around, due to some of the floors not going from front to back. We had any time dining, but next time will have a scheduled time to dine, I believe I like that better. The staff on the dream was wonderful, and everyone that we came in contact with was great.

Great time by JShort

Was relaxing and fun. We sure are a very very wasteful society. I’ve never seen so much food threw away in my life. I imagine the hard working staff on board from many 3rd world countries have quite the opinions of the guests on every cruise.

My wife and I had an awesome time on the cruise. This was our second one and we truest enjoy traveling with this company. We had an opportunity to meet with the Captain and chat a while with him. Everyone working there really makes you feel at home.

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 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.

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.
