Great time on the Dream
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The seven day cruise was fine although I enjoy longer cruises and the 2 days at sea was perfect. The port of Costa Maya was a brief stay until 2:00 PM, not sure why More Carnival can't stay here longer or eliminate Belize. Cozumel and Roatan were excellent. I have been to both numerous times and find them extremely safe and friendly. The large Screen by the pool is showing it's age and has many dead spots. I'm sure Carnival has the budget to fix it. I enjoyed watching the moves at night by the pool, was a nice touch. I enjoyed the DJ by the pool in place of the bands. The bands are fun, but just when you start to enjoy them they take a break.
RCL has a better frequent cruiser plan than Carnival's VIFP. I am a GOLD member but didn't see any benefit. RCL provides a coupon book with actual savings and free drinks. This was an excellent vacation and will be back again on Carnival Less
