New Orleans and Carnival Dream Balcony 11267

Sail Date: December 2016
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
On 12/11/16 Sunday morning we boarded the Dream immediately,by being VIP'S we walked right in with no line to the captains lounge after our security check in. total time 10 minutes and were in the captains lounge having refreshments, we waited in the lounge for about 2 hrs before we were allowed to board the ship.

The Dream is a huge ship; we first had booked a cove balcony and carnival upgraded us to Panorama deck 11 room 11267 Balcony 8g. an on board credit totaling $164 thanks carnival!! This room was huge with a pull out bed couch. The refrigerator is no longer stocked you have to call room service for alcohol beverages. They also no longer put the robes in the room you have to request them. This room was in a great location, when you leave the room you are 22 steps from waves pool and bar, which is the lido deck. the opposite direction 2 minutes to the Atrium elevators. the noise that you hear on the balcony is from the lido deck and dive in movies (jumbo Movie screen). More you can also here the deck chairs being moved around on the lido deck. Overall Cabin 11267 room is the room to book.

Almost forgot the food was not that good to us we have tasted better. The dream does have a sea-day Barbecue serving pulled pork, Italian sausage and K-bosi sausage was delicious, cornbread yams coleslaw chicken breast, pork and beans, and creamed corn. Entertainment we attended 1 show and every night at the atrium a break-dance group called "fun stop" performed nightly it is a really good show.

Our Itinerary first stop was Mahogany bay which we did the beach. Be very careful at this beach just about 4 feet getting into the water there is about a 6 ft. drop with no warnings... Everyone in the water had to warn elderly and children not go no father than 4 feet or they would get a rude awakening. we also ordered the cabanas for $26 to block the sun. In The port of Belize we were tendered in so we just walked and purchased the local beer called "Beliken". In the port of Cozumel we visited Mr. Sanchos resort. We payed $55 for all inclusive, the food and drinks were plenty and they have plenty for you to do. We decided to have the fish called Garafu-dr. fish that eats the dead skin from your feet for 15 minutes $20 dollars. It only tickles your feet. There horse riding, parasailing and jet-ski and plenty more this is the best kept secret in Cozumel. when it was time for us to disembark once again when they called our group we were off the ship and found our bags in less than 10 minutes.Overall would i take this trip again yes. Less

Private Resort Day Pass

This is Cozumel's best kept secret. all you eat and drink, they also have 2 swimming pool bars.

We walked the french quarters and a couple of blocks away we dined at Pralines Connection. Excellent food. we had Alligator sausage, and a Platter for $26 with Ribs, Catfish, Fried chicken, Cornbread, Jambalaya, Mustard greens and bread pudding.

Very Hot.... A dangerous drop off with out any warning at Mahogany bay beach.
