November 2013 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Eastern
Love the new check-in and got onboard very quickly. Also enjoyed the ability to bring two bottles of wine onboard as opposed to paying
for expensive bottles on the ship. Our room attendant and "team" were excellent. Always friendly and remembering our names. The dining staff
were also excellent. Dining experience was good, per dining room and the Lido restaurant. Loved the chocolate extravaganza. Entertainment was
good, dancers fantastic, break dancers were over the top. Female lead singer in all the shows very talented. One critique was the pools...yes you have a "serenity" place for adults, BUT the aft pool should be reserved for 18 and older. The hot tubs always had young children, even the evening hours. Children dunking under the water, splashing each other yes having fun which I am not against, just that they also had the other large pool and hot tubs to enjoy. I gave up using the pool and hot tubs for that reason. Other cruise lines have a specific pool area/hot tubs for 18 and older and are "enforced" by the staff. Please consider this change. Over all its was a much needed relaxing cruise.
