The balcony staterooms were nice I have nothing against that. However they had only one stage show with costumes, singing, and dancing the whole cruise. The food was awful except for the dining room. The desserts were the worst. They were ... Read more

This was our ninth cruise, and it was the best one yet. Carnival never disappoints, and their service is second to none. Everyone is always happy, friendly, and ready to have a good time. I will be loyal to Carnival for life, and the ... Read more

Choose this cruise so that my wife and I could spend a week with her sister and brother in law. This was the time that he could take vacation. Embarkation was a mess with no one knowing what was going on. The same with getting off the ... Read more

Went on this cruise for my wife's birthday, our anniversary and my birthday. We loved our balcony cabin on the back corner of the ship. The cruise director Chris the flying Scotsman was outstanding. Only question was why the food places ... Read more

If you’re thinking of taking the Carnival Dream for a spin, you’re reading the right review! My wife and I have taken two cruises on the Dream (both before and after it was dry-docked and remodeled), and hopefully we can all ... Read more

OVERALL - This was our first cruise which just made things that much worse. We were excited but were sooooo ready to get off the ship after the second day. The ship came out of dry dock and what we thought was normal cruising thinking this ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we just wanted to cruise for Valentine's Day. It was our third cruise on the Carnival Dream. It was the Dream's first week out of dry dock. I am not sure of all the work done in dry dock, but it appeared to me ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our friends had booked it previously and they wanted to go to these islands. We have never been to any of the islands so thought it would be fun to go with friends. From embarkation to debarkation ... Read more

Went with friend group & had a great time~! Service - OUTSTANDING! Scarlett Main dining Room - It was like the "old" days of cruising when your server remembered your name and your drink preference. With all of the ... Read more

My wife and I were looking for a Caribbean cruise that went out of a different embarkation port than Ft Lauderdale and one that wasn’t too expensive so we could take her sister also. This cruise seemed to fit the bill just nicely. ... Read more

My wife and I cruised with five other couples and had a blast! To get the negative out of the way, the ONLY issue we had was the hot tubs consistently being closed and the staff not having a consistent explanation about it. The two ... Read more

Chose Carnival Cruise based upon itinerary, ports of call & lower price. Boarding process is a bit chaotic unless you have VIP early entry (which we did). Ship was beautiful; staff was helpful/friendly. Cloud 9 Spa Suite was ... Read more

my husband wanted to do New Orleans and I was interested in all the ports. Embarkation was quick for us. On the ship by 12:00. It was two hrs late leaving so bad for the casino goers. We had an inside cabin 8206. Very quiet even though ... Read more

Embarkation/Debarkation. Seamless as usual with FTTF. 15 minutes from curb to cabin. Debarkation was very organized and fairly quick. Ship. The Dream is beautiful. Kind of hard to figure why she's going into drydock. Fairly easy to ... Read more

My friend booked this cruise to celebrate my 50th birthday and it was fantastic! The ship was nice, our interior rooms larger than expected and very clean and comfortable. The food from the buffet was only so-so but very good in the sit ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise and I would have to say, much like other reviewers have already mentioned there were noticeable, albeit small cut-backs on board the Carnival Dream but all in all it was still a great cruise. Embarkation was a ... Read more

I am not sure why people criticise this cruise ship, we have been on Disney, Royal Carribean, Princess, Costa, MSC, NCL and Holland America and the ship compares favourably against all of these with the exception of Holland America which ... Read more

Overall it was a great cruise, we had a great waiter Gusti in the Scarlet Lower Dining room table 525. The Maitra D was very nice also. Food was good. I miss the table clothes on casual nights, the water glasses sweat and drip all over ... Read more

I chose a cruise as a short getaway for my husband and myself. We live in New Orleans so Carnival made sense as it allowed us to be dropped off at the port. As a person with mobility issues (able to walk, use a cane, sometimes use a ... Read more
