Review summary

We have decided to cancel our March cruise on carnival dream and rescheduled to RCCL. They seem to do things better . All staff was awesome


3 out of 5
Embankment flowed great unless you requested handicap wheelchair assistance as we did for my husband. All our friends were able to walk on in minutes but because of my husband needing a wheelchair, we waited approximately 1 q/2 hours along with many others who requested the assistance.

Ship tip

DO NOT BOOK CABIN ON DECK 11 if you’re a nonsmoker. You have to walk through the congregation of smokers to go to your cabin and can smell constant smoke outside cabin. We were few doors away from entrance

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas
