Carnival pinching pennies

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Dream

Texas Tom the cruiser
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

At first, we were really disappointed with the Dream. Then, things kind of turned around a little during the final sea days. The good things: -- The ship and staterooms seemed very clean. -- The Alchemy Bar was a kick. Engaging, professional bartenders. Good drinks (although not cheap at $14 for a cocktail). -- The Bonsai Japanese restaurant was one of our favorites. The food and ...

NEW YEAR'S EVE CRUISE

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Dream

This was my 35th cruise, but first ever NYE cruise. This cruise was myself, husband, daughter and her husband(this was his first cruise). Embarkment was fairly quick and easy. We were on this ship by 11:45am. Dropped off our luggage at our Spa Balcony cabin on deck 12 and headed to the Lido for lunch and a cocktail. Guy's Burger was delish as always. I didn't eat at the Lido buffet all ...

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Dream

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Nothing like formal night, asking for reserved wine and them losing it. Then issue not being resolved until after dessert. One would think losing a $10 bottle of wine you are charging nearly $50 for would be taken care of immediately. First response was will will give you a glass at no charge. Then waiting until after the meal seemed like vengeance while they lost what I paid for. Additionally, ...

Food is horriable and not kids friendly

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Dream

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

We've been cruising several times in the past with Carnival and RCL. We had great impression on Carnival back to 2016 so we chose Carnival Dream to sail with our 18-month old baby. However, the entire trip was not good at all compared to our past experience. 1) Embarkation - Probably the only good part. It is very smooth. We arrived on time and check-in is very smooth and fast. 2) Food - ...

If this had been my first cruise ever, I never would get on another one.

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Dream

This was our first cruise since covid, but my sixth cruise over all and fourth cruise on Carnival. So from the beginning. We decided to book this trip last minute after suffering two deaths in the family as a way to decompress from the losses. So in September we started looking for a cruise out of Galveston being we reside in Texas and didn't want to fly to Florida. Even though we wanted to take ...

Horrible service on carnival

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Dream

Tiffany Dubois
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We choose this cruise to celebrate thanksgiving and a family birthday. It was a terrible disappointment. The food in the dining room was atrocious. Not good on the lido buffet either. The steak house was passable. The atmosphere in the steakhouse is nice. My importantly we had a medical issue at 1:00am. The medical clinic is closed. So if you have emergency in middle of night this is not ...

The boat was not clean and is outdated

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Carnival Dream

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

The dining room food was gross and it took forever. The boat was not clean and is outdated. There was an inch of dust on the vents in the Spa. The sofa in my room was in need to shampooing. Someone used duct tape to hold the laps together in my cabin. Drink services wait times were long. There was a fight by the pizza place and security was nowhere to be found. The bartender just watched the fight ...

We had a blast from our first cruise so now we are looking forward to do our next one! All the entertainments were fun, so much to do everyday! The food was all great! It was all very organized! All the crews were great! Everything was amazing! We loved all the shows and all the musics and dance. We enjoyed using all the spa facilities and the massage was great too! We loved the Filipinas who did ...

Worst Carnival cruise every. Fights on board

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Carnival Dream

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Have been on 5 other Carnival cruises before this one and I will never cruise with Carnival again. Food was awful and over cooked, took sometimes over an hour to get bar and lounclge staff to help me get a drink and other passengers were rude and started fights. While waiting over 45 min for charm bracelet charms people would cut on line and threaten to "wipe the floor with you" staff and security ...

Disappointment

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Dream

Glad2Be
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We've been on many cruises, most on Carnival, but this was the worst cruise we've been on for many reasons. We paid a lot of money for a balcony room and were put on the lowest floor with a balcony that was always wet with standing water, rust, and at times had a terrible sewage odor. Our last day on the ship the sewage smell was in our room. There were not enough electrical outlets in the ...
