Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Carnival Dream, Spa space Hogs and limited dancing
Just back from a trip on the Carnival Dream, Dec 2012. The highlights of entertainment was Imani in the piano bar and an Asian couple that were very good. The boat was nice, but we were disappointed with the SPA/Gym and Entertainment.

The most frustrating was with aerobics section in the SPA. Regardless of how many people were taking a class (only 1) the entire section was closed off. They wanted to cram us all together in front of the ellipticals, no room. This was the only time I've been denied space. Waste of space and resources. The staffs excuse was "they paid for the class." So did they also pay for the only large area available for aerobics and stretching? I don't need help with Detox or to be shown how to do a sit-up. Just give me space. I also paid to be there. Too much limitation, without a reason. Would not open it up to "regular" passengers. Had to pay extra for a class. NOWAY

The Carnival Dream were also very quick to close down the buffet in the afternoon when we were getting back from excursions.

Where's the dance floor? When they had dance gatherings on the 10th deck by the pool, the staff did not make any room. Trying to do line dancing in the little space between the deck chairs. No wonder they had very little participation.

The Groove for St Jude was only 3 songs. Really, was it too much of a imposition? We want to Dance!

The Caliente club was always empty, because of the music. Give us something to dance to!

Very often in the evenings, could not find anything good for entertainment. We went to two shows, but they were exactly the same as on the Carnival Glory, even the jokes.

The Carnival Glory is much better even though it's a little older. Continuous, high quality entertainment.
