Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Enjoyed another successful Carnival Cruise, this time on the DREAM. The ocean view cabin was spacious and very nice but I am not used to being on the 2nd DECK and at the very back of the ship! The motors are very loud when entering into or leaving a port! Food was decent,, best side dish, the Potato Salad,, FRESH DAILY. Had a visit to the CHEF'S STEAK HOUSE @ $35 per person,, WORTH EVERY DOLLAR!! The sail away party was fun, but the lack of the island bands and Calypso music from former days made it a lil boring. A couple of days the activity level planned for guest was very limited! Also missing from the buffet were chicken Tenders,,, the rest of the food was good. The disco At night was fun , met some new friends and learned some new line dances. CASINO area was smoky,, they should have designated areas for smokers so all can enjoy and not choke to death! The SPA SAUNA STEAM ROOM are lacking in size it was hard to find them compared to other ships .IMPRESSIVE are the number of hot More tubs on board including those that appeared to be hanging over to the sides of the ship. Water slides were ok but one of them was not so thrilling. Staff was great and friendly from day one. Looking forward to next Carnival Cruise NOV 1st on board the Glory. Less

Cabin review:

Cabin was spacious for being on DECK 2 but the noise from the motors in the middle of night was a disturbance.
