Best Cruise EVER!

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral

This was our first cruise. It was for our honeymoon. There was 3 couples that went. We had an awesome time! The way the staff pampered us, and made us feel important was very impressive. The ship is beautiful. Full of plenty to do. Our dinner staff (Leo, Sheryl, Ivan, Amit) were one of the highlights of our cruise. They were so attentive, friendly, and fun! We did have noise issues in our room (2373). It is under the Galley, and there is banging, scraping, and thumping throughout the day and night. We didnt get much sleep! We all complained about this several times. Eventually we were offered ear plugs, and some compensation. The ear plugs did help some. The rooms are comfortable, and the cove balcony is fabulous.

Overall, this cruise was a complete success, and we look forward to cruising with Carnival again. Unfortunately the Dream wont be cruising out of Port Canaveral for much longer. We want to use Port Canaveral as our port, but we also want to go on a ship with cove More balconies. Time will tell I guess.

**The entertainment on this cruise was excellent! Less

Cabin review:

Love the balcony. Perfect location! NOISY due to being under the Gallet.

Snorkeling

First time snorkeling. Loved it. Very fun, and beautiful.


Took a bus to the beach, and walked the beach and shopped in the shops.Another poor but beautiful place.

Island Tour

Our tour guide, Karla, was so informative, and nice. She always made us feel comfortable and safe. There are some beautiful places on this island, but overall, it was another sad, poor place.
