  3. Carnival Dream
Just got off Carnival Dream Nov 5 sailing. Smooth disembarkation. Cruise was great fun, lots of thing to do, great ports to visit. Ship is huge ! Very comfortable rooms. Temperature was always right. The Staff is superb, they are both friendly and helpful. They work very hard to please you. Shows are great, comedy club is lots of laughs. Dining room food is very good,good service. We usually enjoy the buffets on previous cruises for breakfast and lunch. On this ship all is not well in that department. Early risers have a poor selection of cold food at best. Hot food lines are late and or slow to open. Little or no variety of breakfast foods. Huge buffet lines when they do open. Forget about that early lunch, most lines do not open until noon. Then the huge line is already formed. The lines are a big problem on this ship. I have been on comparable size ships and they handle the crowd effortlessly. I have been on 10 cruises and this ship is the noisiest -lots of ship structure creaking,groaning and banging in less than smooth seas.
