This was my first cruise. I showed up on the ship and was like a kid in a candy store. I was amazed on how big the ship was and also how many things they had to do on it as well. The crew was so accommodating, friendly and so nice. ... Read more

I have to start off by saying Bassic said it best in their review of this ship. It wasn't terrible . . . . it just wasn't what I was hoping for and I believe my expectations were pretty low considering I had chosen Carnival for my cruise. ... Read more

I live thirty minutes from Galveston so it was a simple matter to drive over on the morning of the 3rd. I was traveling with three friends and we arrived around 11AM. We always park at the EZ Cruise parking. By making reservations on-line ... Read more

I always read reviews and have to remember everyone is different so you pretty much have to take them with a grain of salt. My first cruise was on a Carnival and my second on Celebrity. It was obvious that Carnival is your more affordable ... Read more

We have 12 Carnival cruises with many of their new ships, so looked forward to Dream. But we were saddened by the overcrowding of nearly 4000 passengers. There were 2700 past guests onboard. Carnival did not handle this as well as they ... Read more
