Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Boarded the Dream on Sat with very litttle trouble. Getting on was smooth and easy. after getting on we got to stand in our first line for food on the Lido deck. While the cruise was not fully booked almost alway had to wait in line on the Lido deck. Dream did not have space for the number of people on boarding and on most days eating was a wait in line.

The ship was easy to navigate after learning the plan. While the ship is larger than others it seem s that the public space is smaller tha Freedom and Glory.

Food on Lido deck was average not as good as other shhips i have been on with Carnival. On shore days the Lido dining hall was not well run. Breakfast was served late and lunch opened at noon and space was limited. Docked at 11 am and luch was not started until noon and closed early so if you went ashore you could not eat buffet had to stand in line at the grill r deli.

Dining room food was great as always and getting in was fairly quick even with lines on the Your time sittings.get there early as the crowd picks up and the lines grew longer for early sittings each night.

The cruise was one of the most unstable that i have been on, ship rocked most of the time, basically the wind was bad.

Short stay in Nassau and then started the cruise

St Thomas had good weather and plenty of time to look around or take an excursion.

St Marteen was great Cattamaran the Golden Eagle to beach was great swimming and crew were good, snorkling was not very good but still great excursion the crew of Golden eagle was great.

The shows were the normal Carnivals shows, country show was horrible as singers definately were not into country. Comedy was big on cruise as punchliner was often full early.

Casino was not as good as others, smoking was everywhere and tables were not always open .

Fun shops did not seem as big as others Freesom and Glory.

Gettin off at Port Caneveral was one of the smoothest i have been through, started letting self deembarakation at 7am and was back at hotel by 745 and on the road.

Cruise was great overall even though had some bad weather and bumpy ride. ream might be one of newer ships but freedom and Glory put it to shame.
