Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Great For First Time Cruisers
Although it will change next year, Carnival Destiny is excellent for first time travelers. The cruise has 3 perfect ports for first timers. Read each port for more information. Carnival Destiny has a great pool and food. The only thing I didn't like was the desserts.

When you enter the ship you feel like you stepped into a Vegas Hotel. There are a lot of blinking lights and shiny metals everywhere. Enjoy the views and get use to the ship. The two decks you will be the most outside of you cabin, are the Promenade and Lido. On the Promenade you will find the casino, sports bar, disco, piano bar, and comedy lounge. On that deck is the Palladium Lounge (which takes up 3 decks). They have good shows, you have to see at least one.

On the Lido Deck you can find the buffet, grille, pizzeria, and NY Deli. The Grille is great. Wonderful hamburgers and fries are worth it. Every night I got late night pizza. You have to get that. There's nothing like pizza at 1AM in the morning.

Also check out the Cafe, the cakes are great. On this trip I didn't get a chance to go to the spa. But it looks nice. Check it out. The DJ at the time in the disco room was fantastic. I'm not sure if he's still there, but he knew what to play. Ask him anything in any genre and you can listen to your favorite tunes.

For all people, please go to the Criterion Lounge on the last day at 5PM. It's usually a party and there's great music, fun, and free drinks. Yes, free drinks. It is great. At least I know Carnival does it on their 5-day cruises. Do Not Miss This!!! So many people do.

As always check out the random shows and events throughout the ship.

Have fun.
