A Fab Time! Solo Haven

My complaints are so minor they slip my memory. DO keep in mind I was a solo traveler (female mid-50s) and in arguably the best cabin onboard for me (16704). Embarkation was a complete cluster. Think NYC ...

So So

1) because my brother and his wife have never cruised before. 2) the price 3) where it was going. 4) because my brother and his wife still like to party. Carnival seems more like a party type atmosphere. The staff ...

Think I have had enough of Carnival.

The Dream is a large ship and very much understaffed. From the check in process, to the room steward, the dining room staff, bar staff, it was about the worst service I have ever received on a cruise ship. ...

Good if you are looking for a cheap cruise.

Let me start off by telling you, I have been on over 20 cruises and this was by far the most fun I've had on a ship. With that said, Carnival really needs to step it up. We were on the ship within 45 minutes of ...
