Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Another great cruise

This was our second sailing on the Dream. While the ship layout is not the best, the crew was the friendliest and most accommodating we have had in a long time. The ship itself has limited deck space to enjoy laying in the sun. There are also limits on the type of food, although what they had was very good.

This cruise took us to Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. Nassau is not one of our favorite ports, and the stay is very short. This time we walked 15 minutes to Junkanoo Beach. We were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and the service provided to us was very good. We did not eat, only drank beer. In St. Thomas we took a local taxi to Coki Beach for the snorkeling, and we were not disappointed.There was excellent service by the businesses located there and the prices were good. We will go there again. In St. Maarten we decided to venture to the Orient Beach area by taking a local taxi. We were disappointed in the beach because it was a narrow beach, a lot of seaweed, and was very crowded.Perhaps that was due to 5 ships being in the port at the same time. However, "Brothers", a "bar" located on the beach provided everything at a very reasonable price and anticipated all of our needs. We will not go to that beach area again.

All in all the cruise was great. We left cold weather and returned to colder weather. Wish we were still at Coki Beach, snorkeling and enjoying the warm sun.
