Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Carnival Dream 7 Day Eastern Caribbean

We had a blast on the Carnival Dream in August 2013. It was our first 7 day cruise and we've already booked an 8 day for this year.

Fun on the Carnival Dream(1 minute 26 second video)

Water Fun on the Carnival Dream via GoPro (55 second video)

Ride the Drainpipe thanks to the GoPro (30 seconds)

Our excursion in Grand Turk Blue Water Divers (45 second video)

We did feel the Carnival Dream felt a little more crowded than ships we had sailed in the past. (Carnival Sensation, Carnival Imagination, Carnival Inspiration, and Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas)

The water slides were great. There was a Twister slide, 2 yellow slides that were fun for racing, and the Drainpipe. The pool on the back deck was a great extra that the other ships did not have. The center pool was small and always crowded, but still lots of fun.

The Punchliner breakfast was AMAZING! By far the best breakfast on the ship. We enjoyed dinner in the dining room every night and enjoyed the variety although very similar to our past cruises. We had lunch on the Lido most days, but did try the pasta restaurant. It tended to be crowded and have long waits.

The shows were enjoyable and a great place to relax after dinner. The movies on the big screen with popcorn on the Lido deck was a lot of fun even though we never sit still long enough to watch an entire movie.

We enjoyed mini golf a few times. Basketball was also a lot of fun for the kids.

The photographers were great. After the guys got over griping about getting pictures done we were very pleased with the outcome and prices (ask about specials).

The service was AWESOME from everyone. We didn't run into a single grouchy employee. There were a few grouchy passengers....oh well, to each his own.

Don't raise your hand to volunteer for pool Olympics. At 41 I felt 80 when I finished competing against a bunch of 20somethings. It was fun....just took a while to catch my breath afterwards.

The kids enjoyed Camp Carnival for the first time. Signing in and out on their own was great. The girls especially enjoyed learning a routine and performing it on stage.
