Carnival Dream - Western Caribbean-Oct 16-23
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
I took advantage of the spinning class during our first day at sea. I recommend that you sign up for any and all classes for the duration of the cruise on embarkation day if you want to do them as they fill up quickly.
I went to the shopping talk which ended up being beneficial to us but wouldn't recommend it unless you are going on a cruise with the intention of buying something. Once again,I did not know what I was getting myself into but it worked out in the end. Domenica was very helpful and I wouldn't have met her and known who to talk to if I had not gone to the show.
The dinners were wonderful and our waiter and staff were very attentive. If there was anything wrong with what we chose, it was fixed right away. If you have the chance to eat in the Crimson Dining Room, go by and see Gene.
I only saw our room steward (never got his name) in the hall ways and once when they were cleaning our room. Did not have much interaction with them at all. The showers were roomy which I had been informed were small and cramped. The room was nice and there was plenty of closet space.
The fun team is great as they seem to have so much energy. My favorite was Greg aka Gumby. I would recommend participating in the digital scavenger hunt. It was a great way to see things on the ship that you didn't know were there. The trivia games are quite fun as well. Would avoid bingo unless you are an avid bingo player.
The shows at night were great but would recommend arriving early (especially for the comedy shows) if you want a good seat. The adult comedy starts to fill up about 45 mins before the show.
Overall the trip was amazing and we arrived home rested and relaxed. I will definitely go again. Less
Cabin review: 1A1425 Interior Upper/Lower
We were on deck 1 which is the bottom of the ship. As first time cruisers it was fine. Not sure if I would upgrade to a balcony but a window next time would be nice. The cabin was roomy for the two of us. There was plenty of closet and drawer space. Recommend putting the suitcases under the bed. Was always clean. A bit noisy as you are in the bottom of the boat and you hear the engine noises but not too bad. It was more of a low hum until you were in port. The morning we arrived in Costa Maya was very loud as we were docking at 5:00 in the morning.Read All Interior Upper/Lower (1A) Reviews >>
