Great Ship...wonderful Dream !

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
We have just come back from a back to back Carnival cruise and had a wonderful time. I wont go over what everyone else has already written, but apart from the air con being too cool inside the ship , the second weeks entertainment the same as the first weeks, and the same menu in the dining room, everything the cruise had to offer was wonderful. Our carnival trips ashore were informative and exactly what we expected and wanted. We did book through Bernard's tours in St Marten and would recommend this thoroughly. Slim our guide was wonderful, fun and helpful in every way. Our Belize trip down the river Wallace, the mayan ruins, and the trip into the jungle was so exciting. Where else would you get Manatees, dolphins, monkeys, crocs,iguanas, in the wild, all in the one place. Definitely worth the trip.
Our stateroom was lovely, clean, airy and roomy and we would recommend the cove balcony which is nearest the sea to see the flying fish and the dolphins! Unfortunately our balcony More had to be closed for a couple of nights because of a storm, but were soon opened again when it was safe. The meals in the Scarlet dining room were lovely and our waiters Florenza and Keelan....probably spelled wrong......were the best. Nothing was too much trouble for them . The same goes for Leonardo our steward. Nice man, very quick and efficient.
Loved the serenity deck, free of children.....a lovely place to relax between trips. The American people as a whole were extremely friendly to us Brits and always willing to have a chat, nice people and very helpful in lots of ways.
In the two weeks my husband and I are proud to announce that we win the trivia quiz THREE times. !!! Despite the fact that some teams had five in them to our two....... Three golden ships on a stick were our precious prizes, and they are on prominent display in our house!!!
Lovely staff, lovely meals, lovely trips,lovely weather (except for a couple of days )lovely clean ship, and decent entertainment, what more could you want on holiday ! We had it all ! Thank you Dream..... Less

Cabin review: 7C2256 Cove Balcony

Cove balcony 2256. Lovely and private. Nice spacious room with lots of wardrobe space. Comfy bed and clean efficient bathroom. Very quiet, and very near everything so that apart from going to the top of the ship to the serenity deck, we could walk to the dining room, encore theatre, and the other areas of entertainment just by going down a few steps. Easy for embarking and disembarking at ports too. Highly recommend it.
