Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Wonderful Dream
It was a wonderful cruise,every time I cruise I fear that it will not be as great as the last time,but this has to be my favorite so far.The only problem we had was nothing to do with the ship,but rather the stress filled 2 hours of being stuck in a traffic gridlock near Orlando after a major car crash closed the highway.We decided as a family that we will always be in the departure port the night before after that!We were much later embarking than usual because of that but in a way it was good as there were no lineups by then so it was walk in to the terminal and walk on,no waiting.Our luggage arrived only a couple hours later,always a relief.

The ship was sailing at pretty much max capacity,4500 guests but we never felt crowded.One of the things I love about cruise ships is that you can find exciting noisy areas and quiet serene retreats.Absolutely loved the Lanai Deck,what a great idea,so nice to have access to deck chairs and hot tubs away from the chaos of Lido!

We had a Cove Balcony,loved it!!Felt so close to the water,saw Dolphins swimming with the ship and a huge sea turtle.Enjoyed the shows and especially the comedy club.

Ate in the Dining Room as much as possible, as a family we dislike buffets,Pasta Bar option was really nice though.Went to the cooking demo at The Steakhouse,pleasantly surprised that it included delicious samples!
