The day we were to board the Carnival Dream was for us a day of excitment and expectations. It was easy Carnival has it all worked out to get you checked in to board the ship and our room was ready our luggage would not be there but if we needed to freshen up or leave carry on baggage it was available. Of course we took advantage of that and then went to lunch on the Lido deck which was delicious! Then we began our tour of our ship our home for the next 7 days. Whopie, the interior is beautiful and elegant easy to get around and the staff is helpful if you get turned around. Outside what can I say the views of the ocean, the sun, the sounds of laughter, people relaxing and enjoying drinks and socializing.
We had two meet and greets with our cruise critic roll calls friends even though the turn out was small we made friends for life and enjoyed there company. We enjoyed the evening shows great entertainment and the dining atmosphere was excellent we were entertained nightly in our dining room by the staff. Food was awesome excellent tasty and beautifully presented.
Our ports was Cozumel, we shopped till we dropped, Mahogany Bay,Rotan explored, Belize we booked excursion with Cave-Tubing.com had an awsome experience tubing and zip lining in the forest, Costa Maya, Mexico, explored. Lots of fun in the sun. We got dressed up and visited the spa and spent time in the hot tub and at the clubs enjoying the music even danced a bit. Drinks are excellent.
The day of embarktion again Carnival has it down to a science "it was easy". Thank You to all the staff of the Carnival Dream you made our stay most enjoyable and to the Captain your management skills shows through your staff. Excellent. One note for guest there is taxes to pay on all purchases over 800 dollars this applies to each person. So if you purchase under 800 there is no tax but if you purchase items totalling over 800 expect to pay taxes.
