Ship Facts: Carnival Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Dream Deck Plans
Our October Dream
We stayed at the Cocoa Beach Courtyard and had our transportation to and from the airport thru Travelynx. It was great to get up on Saturday morning and take a walk on the beach before heading to the port. Travelynx was great transportation. If you use this company make sure you read the fine print. We had an extra charge because the couple we shared a room with came in on a different flight.

VIP check-in was a breeze and we were in group 1 to board the ship. Our friends who did not have VIP check-in were in group 5, but were on board within 20 minutes of us and said their check-in was great also.

Once on board, we were in room 2264, a cove balcony. What a great addition to cruising! We loved this room and will always have a cove balcony when we cruise on ships where they are available.

Dinner was in the Scarlet Dining room and had Alexandar and Ayu for our servers. They were fantastic, probably the best service we have ever had. Food selections were good. We missed the shrimp cocktail every evening, but there were lots of other fun things to try! We did enjoy the steakhouse one evening. Always a treat!

We enjoyed the hot tubs on deck 5. Also being able to walk all the way around the ship helped us work off some of that chocolate melting cake! We did have the BBQ lunch on deck 5 on the two sea days. They also make salads at the sushi bar during lunch on sea days.

The area with the big screen and music is not our cup of tea, so we didn't spend time there, but did take in a laser light show one night.

The comedy club became a favorite place for us to spend part of the evening. The family shows were good as well as the adult only ones.

The week always come to an end quicker than we hope. We did purchase the future cruise certificate so we have the next one to look forward to.
