Fun Ship for First Time Cruiser

First Time Cruiser

I chose this cruise based on its ratings for best first family cruise. We booked a midship balcony room. Had late arrival time so parking lot was full and we had to park in overflow lot C. It took a long time to get there due to traffic and we received little direction on how to get there. Our room was ready when we finally arrived on the ship and luggage arrived quickly. Room was not as clean as ...

So I chose this date for our Carnival Dream Cruise because my husband wanted to go to the Eastern Caribbean and we had never been to Key West Florida before. The weather beganvery cold from our port in New Orleans- we definitely had to wear our jackets for the first Port of call which was Key West. We walked for most of Key West seeing a lot of the sites, saw the southernmost point of the U.S. We ...

My wife and I had this cruise scheduled and a hurricane named Harvey changed our itinerary for us. This was also the only cruise on the Dream we had not sailed as anyone that has looked at our profile of cruises will see and our 5th on the Dream. Liked Carnivals new embarkation board with boarding pass, sail and sign card in mail box by cabin door and we love the Cove Balconies on deck 2. The ...

This was my 5th cruise. My 3rd with Carnival and it was absolutely horrible. It has been 4 years since my last cruise and this experience has left me with never wanting to take my vacation on a cruise. Embarkation has significantly improved and moved very quick. We boarded the ship about 12:20 and were not able to get to our rooms until 1:30, which meant we had to pack the luggage we did not ...

We (mid 60s) decided to take our daughter(30) and son-in-law (40) on a cruise. We have been on several cruises, first time for them. The main reason we picked the Dream out of New Orleans was because we wanted a long day in Key West (8-5). Our son-in-law is an avid fisherman and we wanted to fish in Key west. We flew down on Saturday January 27th. We took a cab from the Airport to Maison Dupuy ...

I give Carnival Dream a 9 out of 10, with 10 being the highest. Enjoy the ship and cruise. Ship is clean and neat. Our interior cabin was very roomy and comfortable. Crew was very friendly, Especially Wasanna in the Buffet Area, Always telling you good morning. She puts a big smile on your face every day. Food was good in the dinning room 7 out 10. "I am kinda picky, being from New Orleans" The ...

Thanksgiving Cruise

We choose the Dream because it was the biggest and closest ship to us. Perfect timing for the holiday while the kids were out of school and very inexpensive. Our cabin steward and waiter staff were great. There was so much to do and eat on the ship that we didn’t get a chance to experience it all so most likely we’ll try to make it up on our next cruise. The excursions were great. Key West ...

We took the Thanksgiving cruise on Carnival Dream out of New Orleans. We live only an hour from NOLA, and we knew we just wanted to get away for the holiday, so this was a no-brainer. We previously sailed Dream in 2014. We consider ourselves fairly well-seasoned cruisers, having sailed on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian. The ship itself is quite nice, but it came out of dry dock not ...

Ship was really nice, but I had prepaid for spa services and they charged me again I had to go to straighten it out every day. At end of cruise still fighting. Their accounting program has no way to enter the prepaid amount deduction at the time of service. Also not once but twice I was told I had a losing hand by two different dealers within an hour apart when I had a winning straight. Pictures ...

We chose this cruise because of the ports it was to visit. we arrived about noon, parked off-site and had no wait to embark. Debarkation was just as smooth. Great job there the ship was very clean and updated. We were in an ocean suite on the 7th floor. nice cabin, but it overlooked an outside hot tub. If you want lots of quiet time on your balcony, choose another cabin. Late dining was not very ...
