It was very good!!

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The Carnival Dream is a beautiful vessel with many features that other cruise ships lack,however the Dream was not a perfect cruise.

Embarkation-The Embarkation to the ship was fairly smooth as long as you get to the port about 6 hours before the Cruise sets sail. Security getting on the ship is the only unorganized part of the cruise you must wait in a line to get to the machines then wait in another line to get to different machine where multiple other guests are already using so u must mix you bags with your fellow guests. Once you are on the ship you can either go to your room or eat on the Lido Deck (deck 10)or go to your room, I strongly advise bringing a snack on the cruise ship due to the fact that most of your fellow guests are already on the lido deck.

Day 1-NASSAU- I was dissapointed of Nassau due to the fact that the straw market had burned down and it looked as though there were no efforts to replace it. The general city of Nassau was a normal tourist More area (tour guides left and right) mostly offering Horse and Buggy Rides. I personaly only spent about four hours on the island because i enjoyed the ship so much.

Day 3&4-St Marteen and St Thomas- These two areas were very nice due to the fact that they felt very New York City like Carnival offered a Scuba Diving tour for both Island that I strongly reccomend. The only flaw of these two islands was Getting back on the ship! Less
