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

Okay, so I know this ship got plenty of bad reviews, and let me first say that those people are insane. Before I tell you all about this fantastic ship, let me mention the things that people have complained about and let me clear some things up.

First off, I know one complaint was that the ship smelled. Actually, I only noticed a bad smell on the 2nd floor, part of the time. I'm not sure why, but I'm sure theres a legit reason for it. Also, if you think it's so bad that it ruins the whole cruise, your nose is too strong for your own good.

Secondly, I heard that there was a review or two about the crew being unfriendly. THIS IS A COMPLETE LIE. All of the workers on the ship were super sweet.

Thirdly, there was a review about the food being cold at dinner. Lies. My food was never cold.

Go ahead and throw some more complaints out about the ship if you have any, I don't want to miss a fib.

Now for what I have to say -

First off, when you get on the ship, if you're wanting to meet people you should def. create a funhub account. I met a lot of cool people through that... it was an excellent addition to carnival. There are tons of things that go on on this ship... so you can't really be bored unless you just sit in your room like a lame-o.

Be sure to see the "Dancing in the Street" show!!! it's AWESOME. Some of the dancers have toured with some big time people like Missy elliot and MICHAEL JACKSON! so you don't want to miss that show.

As a musician, I feel that I should mention the musicians that were on the ship. They were OUTSTANDING. I won't give away what happens in the shows, but just know that the band members will be way more involved.. and it's awesome :)

The carnival staff on this ship were pretty attractive, if that helps you look forward to it :p

To the bingo lovers - well, this is really just to the scratch card lovers...unfortunately, they replaced scratchcards for some other match card'll have to see. it's 5 dollars to buy, and it's the only negative change I found.

If you cruise on eastern caribbean, when you get to st.thomas you should def do the castaway girl excursion. it's a BLAST. :)
