Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
BIGGER is not always BETTER!!
We are experienced cruiser's as this was our 4th. We have experienced Disney, Royal Carribean and this was our second Carnival cruise. Compared to our experience on Carnival Legend, this was a dissapointment as we had a great time on the Legend. Carnival Dream's decor was very stark without a lot of detailed luxury as we have found on other ships.

As other reviewers have detailed, the embarkation process was seemless and the counter staff in the terminal were very pleasant to deal with and sent you off ready to cruise.

We got into our room right at 1:30pm and received our luggage piece meal but all in tact with the exception of a couple of bottles of wine and booze were confiscated. Can't complain too much about that as they delivered everything back to us on the last night. A word of not that in each port you are permitted to bring on a six pack of beer or 1 bottle of wine (sealed) so we did that for the local flavors.

We had to move our table after the first night of dining as we had requested to be at our own table yet they seated us with this miserable family of 5 and had we continued this would have just ruined our trip.

The entertainment for a ship this big was average at best. They really should focus on better bands and shows for as much as they charge for this cruise.

Don't get me wrong...my family knows how to have fun so we thoroughly enjoyed our trip but will chose a much smaller ship next time so we don't feel that we are constantly waiting in lines and being herded.

Note to self...smaller ship next time.
