love carnival, they give you the best value for you money. they always gives us a fun cruise. out of 20 cruises we have never had a bad cruise with them. we have cruised royal and Norwegian and have found we get more with carnival. our cabins seem bigger and the service is better on carnival and the food seems the same on all cruise lines though. some say theirs are better but what we found is they all tend to have just about the same food . ports are all the same from one cruise line to the other. the Dream was a great ship with lots of places to sun your self. we always were able to find chairs to lay out any time we wanted. you have deck 5 all the way around the ship that had chairs plus deck 10 and 11 . we have booked 3 more cruises on this ship for 2017. we also have 3 more with carnival this year too. if you want fun and value cruise carnival. you will find you can cruise more often for you money, plus you can have all the fun you want with out the high cost as with other cruise lines.
great looking and close to all the food and nightly movies on lido.
shopped the port
did our own thing there
we boarded there but we did stay the night before the cruise . great are around the port to say and to get things to eat.
