Just sailed on the Carnival Dream

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
ROOM: Ocean Suite was beautiful, but was just above an outdoor hot tub and took away from deck privacy. For next cruise, will be less selective on Suite category and more selective on where to be placed on the ship. Will try to get one directly over ocean.

POOLS: Were very nice. I see no need to go crazy to get a poolside chair. Crazy crowded by pool. Better to get a chair further away, which is more a available, and then walk to the pool when you want to cool off.

FOOD: This ship gets an A grade on food. Unlike Norwegian, the near the pool ongoing buffet had food which was very good. Although there were lines, they moved quickly.

Free (included) very good food was also offered when in the shopping/casino area (sushi, etc).

The main dining room dinner food was excellent as usual. Even though the steak restaurant was over the top/amazing, the only downside was that on that night you missed the main dining room food.

PORTS: The shopping was fun, More but all vendors sold the same items. The Eastern Caribbean islands are poor, so there wasn't much to do other than go to the beach or back on the boat. No complaints though.

GYM: Although nothing fancy, it fulfilled the basic exercise needs Less
