Dreaming on the Dream Not all Fun and Games

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

zcorvette1989
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

It was a dark and dreary day in New York City. We were very disappointed with the weather. As we arrived at the pier, we couldn't help but marvel at the size of the Dream. Could this really be our ship for the next 8 days? George and I dropped our luggage off with the porters, and then went inside to the cruise terminal. As usual, embarkation was a breeze. We were on the ship no later than 12:45 ...

NOT A REAL DREAM CRUISE ON THE CARNIVAL DREAM

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

trman903
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first time on Carnival, as we always cruise on RCI. We decided to try Carnival because it was a new ship and sailing from NYC. There were four of us traveling together in two cabins. My GF and I and two female friends of ours. We are all in our late fifties to early sixties. We live in South Jersey and hired a private car to take us to the terminal. We left at 10:00am and arrived at ...

Holy Carnival Dream, Batman !!

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

DeathBunny
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Just returned from our 7th cruise, on the Carnival Dream, the largest in the Carnival fleet, sailing out of New York. Don't expect the Dream to return to New York anytime soon, as it appears it's doing most of its sailing out of Port Canaveral. Embarkation went very well. The wife & I arrived at the docks around 2pm, and within half an hour we were on the ship, which was a pleasant surprise. ...

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

To start off...embarkment went very smoothly. I went directly to the counter and got my sail and sign card....then you had to wait for your zone to be called, which took less than 10 minutes. My first impression of the ship is that it is very colorful. I did get dizzy when i first got on the ship and so did my step mom, but once we boarded and walked around a while, we were ok. We headed to the ...

Carnival Dream - A Bad Dream

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

mesodoc
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Let me start by saying that we have cruised with Carnival a total of 5 times before. For this Thanksgiving cruise from NY, we had a group of 8 cabins (20 people), mostly family and some friends. We all live in Brooklyn, NY, so traveling to the pier was easy. We got 2 vans and arrived around 10:30 AM at the pier. We were pleasantly surprised at the quick and efficient check-in process and were ...

Nice, but a little crowded.

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

christr
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

The Dream is a wonderful boat. We had a great time on it. However, with 20% of or more passengers, it does get a bit crowded. There were always lines for the buffets. The theater and lounge areas were always very crowded. You often couldn't get to a comic show unless you showed up very early for it. There were a few extra hot tubs on board compared to their other ships, but again, with an ...

Not quite a Dream but not a Nightmare either

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

booklady26
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

About Us : My husband and I are 60 & 58 respectively but are "young" for our age. We're growing older but not up as the Jimmy Buffett song goes! This was our 5th cruise with Carnival and our 44th cruise overall. Living in New Jersey, we've been sailing only out of the NY area for the past few years since it's so convenient and we don't have to put up with all the headaches of flying. We chose this ...

Had a Great Time On the Dream

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

brighteyes818
First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

Since it was a Sunday the cab ride from Port Authority to terminal was quick. We entered the port about 10:30 am, we were one of the first to arrive. We proceeded to the security line, waited a few minutes, walked to check-in (where they were having some computer trouble) after check-in we were guided to a long terminal area where we waited for our zone number to be called. We were told that they ...

Not quite a DREAM but certainly not a NIGHTMARE

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

kaykels
First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

Carnival Dream was my 10th cruise and my 2nd Carnival cruise. We had 3 cabins for the 7 of us, 2 inside and 1 balcony. My husband and I are in our 40's, traveled with teens, kids and grandpa so we represented most age groups. Emarkation: For most, it was a breeze, for us it was a nightmare. My paperwork was in perfect order and did all of the pre-registering on line. Upon check in the rep gave ...

Dream to the Bahamas

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Dream

Casino Player
First Time Cruiser • Age 2020s

We are on our tenth Carnival Cruise and we were doing a B2B. Someone from the ship came for our luggage to bring it to our stateroom for the eight day cruise. Then we went down to the lobby. We met fellow Cruise Critic members Jack and Geri at the lobby. We got our room keys and someone told us our Sail&Sign information would be transferred from our last sailing, the one we just completed. ...
