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 ...

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 ...

Embarking in New Orleans was a bit slow but certainly organized. We had to sit for almost an hour before boarding started. I was in the Platinum group so I checked in around 10 am and was not on board until noon. The ship could use a major facelift. It was old. My balcony was rusty and unkepted. I was in an Ocean Suite. Dining was good. My servers Paul, Roberto and Jose were very ...

Club O2 was not "open" most of the cruise, so the teenagers had to sit in the stairwell or common areas to play card games and visit.....Mongolian Grill was supposed to be open to be open until 3:30 but one side closed much earlier....This is our second time on the Dream in two years and the atmosphere was one of the majority of the crew/staff not wanting to be there. The desserts that come on ...

I felt the need to leave a review about this cruise because there are quite a few things that seems to have changed with Carnival cruise lines and I figured someone needed to say something. My hubby and I decided to take this particular cruise because we had a group of friends who were also going, and we like to cruise for family vacations simply because it's easier than most family vacations. ...

3rd time cruise with carnival -average food, one less stop but great staff

This our 3rd cruise with carnival -food was very average, one less stop as the we could not dock at St Maarten. In my opinion you need to have a backup plan for things like that. Staff were all awesome, each and every one of the staff was so great, many staff with longevity and that is important. I see cutbacks happening like with fruit you see no strawberrys, no grapes, no ice in staterooms, ...

I had a great time, found that the food was good BUT I wasn't a fan of the maitre d'. Likely the attempt at a floor show and entertainment is to induce us in the early dinner seating to move along. That was successful if not annoying. Food was above par according to my tastes. I ESPECIALLY took advantage of the Indian cuisine station aft daily. (TASTY) I had to search for the very HOT chutney and ...

I always read the reviews on Cruise Critic and appreciate the authors who take their time to write them, so I promised myself that I would do the same when I returned from our recent 21 day back to back cruise out of New Orleans on the Carnival Dream. This is going to be a long one, so if you don’t feel like reading it all, let me start with a summation: Carnival is my least favorite of cruise ...

Well I know inquiring minds want to know about the new Journey cruises, so I will share some highlights. This is our first Carnival cruise in 6 years and just my husband and I, (56 and 46 yrs old) cruised. We have been cruising Royal for the interim. Will we cruise again on Carnival? Maybe, but it is doubtful. Carnival has a decent product, our expectations were not wildly high and I would say ...
