Review summary

Cruise director Lee was full of energy and a natural. I thought he did a fantastic job. Connor (a.k.a Mr. Green) was always so upbeat and full of energy. He is a great people person and I always enjoyed seeing him. This was a trip with my twin sister. It was a blast with so many great memories.

88 keys show was so good (loved Sean) all the dancers were great. Also, we went to the 70's show and Epic Rock. We went to the comedy shows but it was not my favorite.

Children's Programs

I have used this before and did not rate it even though it was an awesome experience for my special needs girl. I really wish I remembered the worker who took such great care of my child. I regret not giving her the special recognition she deserved. She worked on the Dream Sept 28-Oct 5 2018 Circle CO2 (Older kids)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our dining staff on the Black Pearl was so much fun! I Gusti Made, Patcha, and Harmatiy made it memorable. Guest service rep Sofija Grba was always patient and helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Layout and design were good but I did not like going through the smoky casino to get to the other side of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

I went to the Queen Mary for breakfast and it was fabulous!

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

We went to Medano beach. I really loved it however, I now know why people were frustrated with the vendors. We could not even have a conversation because of the vendors. Most of the restaurants did not take cash or were closed. We did find one on the beach that was really goood!!! It was a little cloudy and drizzly.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
Surprisingly this was my favorite. We did an all-inclusive through Carnival. We had great service and the food was really good. We were able to shop when we got back to the ship.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

We went to RIU Palace. This was not a Carnival excursion but we loved it. Just be mindful that when you do book one that is not Carnival, transportation is also not included and that was another $55 for travel.
