Cutting costs: Carnival Dream Cruise Review by godallas
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The ship overall is pretty nice and the boarding and leaving process was painless. I sailed Carnival only for about 8 years and then switched to Royal Caribbean. I have sailed Royal Caribbean for the past 8 years and we are Diamond Members but thought we More would give Carnival another shot because of the better price and the new ship Dream. I didn't like the new way Carnival is doing the tips and putting it on your sail and sign card without asking you. I would rather give the people money myself.
I must say Carnival is coming up with a "few" new things for Platinum members but nothing like Royal Caribbean offers their past cruisers.
Ports of call were the normal ports and we didn't have a problem.
All in all we had a great time and the weather in Florida is much better then Ohio at this time of year.
Entertainment was not as great as normal in my opinion. Ship dancers were in 3 of the 6 nights they had entertainment. Didn't bother going to the 2nd and 3rd time they were on because we didn't enjoy them the first night. Less
Cabin review: JS7368 Junior Suite
Paid a lot extra to get a Junior Suite but we certainly enjoyed it. Lots of room, lots of storage space. Will probably try and get one the next time we go if we can afford it.Read All Junior Suite (JS) Reviews >>
