Overcrowded everywhere on ship
"I am also aware that there were over 3000 guests onboard, but Carnival did very little to utilize the ships size and public space to make the atmosphere less like a day at a ballpark than a cruise.(Deck 5 aft on the outside deck is probably the best place to get a little quiet space with an amazing view) I chose this cruise to start my sons off on their summer vacation...."Read More

Had a great time the service was great the ship was very clean the ship was full. Loved the excursions, had a wonderful time on each one, however the last four days on board we noticed a lot of people sneezing and coughing really thought nothing of it, until we started sneezing and coughing when we got home and self tested we discovered we had COVID we are fully vaccinated so our symptoms are not ...

Let me start by saying the staff on the ship is very friendly and helpful. The ship public areas and the cabins were very clean. I am also aware that there were over 3000 guests onboard, but Carnival did very little to utilize the ships size and public space to make the atmosphere less like a day at a ballpark than a cruise. (Deck 5 aft on the outside deck is probably the best place to get a ...

This was as described. Mostly Americans from the south on board. Very casual. Despite dining room dress code, people in shorts, bathing suits, and baseball hats. Lots of drinking and people complaining about being cut off after 15 drinks per day. People standing in the pools all day drinking. Hardly a mask in sight except the staff. I was not one of the smart few wearing one and I brought ...

This cruise was an anniversary gift from my wife, our fourth cruise together, all aboard Carnival Cruise Lines, and all leaving from Galveston, Texas. She chose this cruise because neither of us had ever been to Key West or the Bahamas so the destinations were high on our priority list. They cancelled the Key West stop a few weeks before we left. I know it wasn't Carnival's fault, but it wasn't ...

Fun Ship for First Time Cruiser

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

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 ...

All were EXCELLENT and recognized me by name after first day. Rock band was Excellent, brass jazz/soul band was ...

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 ...

This was for my birthday, we had the best cruise ever. This was our 17th cruise. Great dining staff, wonderful food. The excursions were very fun. We had no been to these three ports before, Key West, Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas. All of the crew were super nice. The cruise director Gary was very funny. Enjoyed his morning show every morning. The shows in the evening was great. The crew in ...

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 ...
