Sweet Dreams

Sail Date: December 2009
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral

We have been on five cruises and have always enjoyed all of them. The Carnival cruises have been a favorite so we booked the Dream cruise as a celebration of our son's graduation from college.

We booked two cabins on the 9th deck of the ship with balconies, unfortunately we did not realize we were directly under the pizza bar(which serves 24hrs). The noise from sliding chairs and tables was non-stop for seven days and nights. Then at 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning when all of the bars and the disco closed, every drunk arrived at the pizza bar trying to sober-up or continue dancing the night away. We never were able to sleep. Do not book rooms 9350 and 9346. We complained after the third night and Carnival guest services said they would attempted to relocate us, but the ship was full so nothing was available. Tough luck. "Would you like earplugs?"

Having said this, the rest of the cruise was fine. The service and food was commendable. There were lines on the lido deck More at the buffet, but the pasta and Indian bar were rarely crowded.

The show "Dancing in the Streets" was great. One or two of the comedians were entertaining and worth seeing. We only waited a reasonable time for any of the shows we saw. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Dream Balcony Vista 9350

Cabins 9350 & 9346, typical cruise cabins, very comfortable bedding, good mid-ship location, VERY NOISY due to 24-hr Pizzeria directly overhead, chairs scraping constantly, avoid at all costs.

Port and Shore Excursions


Rated 2 only for the beautiful bay. The tender is too far even in good weather. Rained the day we were there.


Rated a 5 only if you take a taxi to Majahual, go to El Delfin restaurant, order the fried red snapper and margarita. Take off your shirt get a 30 minute massage, take off the rest of your clothes and go swimming(or go swimming first).


Love Cozumel. Rent a vehicle, drive around the island to Chen Rio, order the margarita and seafood platter. Take off all your clothes and go swimming.

Loved Roatan. Rent a vehicle or get a taxi, go to the West End, order the grilled conch and killer margarita. Take off your clothes and go swimming or go swimming first.
