  3. Carnival Dream

On a whole our cruise was wonderful.

Embarkation was outstanding and one of the quickest we have every had.
Our cabin was outstanding (8473), huge wrap around balcony, two windows looking out at the ocean from the bed! Cabin Steward (Knee) was the bomb!

There are many things to keep you busy on the ship that you shouldn't be bored.
We only took an excursion at Belize. It was a short trip to Altun Ha. Our guides and diver where very good and it not only was educational but entertaining. I did notice in other reviews that some travelers where surprised on the living conditions of the residents. After traveling through out the Caribbean this is not anything unusual but is shocking to Americans.
The only downside on the cruise was the food. We have cruised on Carnival for years and are use to the buffets but normally the food in the dining room at night has been good.

Unfortunately that wasn't the case this cruise it was at the best mediocre. (One night the prime rib was so bad the my husband couldn't cut it) We went to the Steak House twice during the cruise and the food was better but the service on the second night was horrible! We have always looked forward to the experience but it wasn't there on the second evening.

The disembarkation was just as quick as the embarkation. Finding luggage was a challenge but luckily finding a porter was easier.

Hopefully this will help future cruisers on the Dream!
