Carnival Dream Cruise Review by sailing~wench
- Sail Date: September 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Aft-View Extended Balcony
We stayed in cabin 9472 which was an aft extended view balcony - will definitely stay in one of those again. Had heard that the aft balconies generally ended up covered in soot but never once had that problem or excessive rocking from being at the back. Loved the large curved balcony as well. Size of the room could have been a bit bigger but can't really complain much about that either.
Room steward was great, any entertainment we took in was great as well. Hate to keep using the word great over and over again but can't really describe it any other way lol Was disappointed that every time I went to the spa the technicians(or whatever they're called) would try to guilt me into buying some ridiculously expensive products afterwards by telling me what was wrong with my skin or nails or muscles and if I didn't buy their products and start taking care of the "problems" now I would be sorry later. I'm 51 now and expect to have some signs of aging so that sort of thing doesn't bother me - certainly not enough to spend nearly $1000 or more for the stuff they all suggested I get.
But other than that I loved the cruise over all - much more than the last one I took on the Paradise, possibly because this was a much bigger ship. The Serenity area was probably my favorite part even tho it was a bit close to where the waterslides started and that did tend to interrupt the quiet from time to time. Not enough to completely ruin catching rays tho haha.
Embarkation and debarkation went without a hitch - can't even complain about the lines - stayed in New Orleans for a couple days after we got back. Would definitely recommend going on this ship!
