First cruise with our 4 year old!
"We weren't sure what to expect on this cruise from two fronts: We had always thought Carnival was too much of a "party" ship for the relaxation that we usually seek, and this time we decided to bring our four year..."Read More

First of all you're on a cruise, how could you not be happy!! But I suppose the point of this review is just to give my opinion. I didn't find much to complain about on the Dream, our cabin was incredible. I loved the location. Cove balcony is the way to go. We were right behind the elevators which I initially thought would be a nuisance but I loved not having to walk far, the noise was not bad at ...

The cruise was great enjoyed it but there were a few problems. 1. Port Canaveral departing : It took forever the employees were doing everything they could but I dont think Carnival was set up at the dock for that many people..I can not walk or stand for long periods and had to get a wheel chair.. We arrived at the correct time and still had to wait over an hour and a half. 2. Loved the Cove ...

We were on the Dream for 9 nights starting 4/5/14. We boarded the ship at Port Canaveral and then ended at New Orleans. My only complaint would actually have to do with the boarding but overall it went smoothly after they finally let us in. We went to Aruba, Jamaica, Caymans, & Cozumel. This was my 12th cruise on Carnival and I tell you that we had a really good time. We were joined by my daughter ...

We had a WONDERFUL cruise on the Dream! Embarkation was fairly typical, got to the port around 11:30am, was on board eating lunch at 12:45pm. The staff on board were all amazing! Maybe it was because we were on for 9 days, but we felt we got more personal service from all of the bartenders, wait staff, and cabin stewards. We stayed in room 2376, Cove Balcony. It was a great room. About 30 feet ...

My husband & I have cruised previously but have not been on Carnival since a Med cruise on the Magic- 10/13. I was a little apprehensive prior to the cruise. There has been a lot posted on Cruise Critic regarding recent changes on Carnival ships. EMBARKATION: We purchased Faster to the Fun & for us, it was a good value. Embarkation was slightly delayed on this cruise. I was told that it was due ...

This was a repositioning cruise for the Dream as it moved from its former home port of Port Canaveral to New Orleans. The itinerary was: Embark Pt Canaveral, 2 sea days, Aruba, one Sea Day, Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, a Sea Day and Disembark in New Orleans. Our first time on the Dream which came highly recommended by friends. So did we live the Dream or did the Dream turn into a nightmare? ...

We enjoyed this cruise more than any others in the Caribbean. The Carnival Dream was appropriately named; it is a Dream with beautiful decor and amenities, fantastic staff, and a great itinerary. We started our cruise with dinner in the Steakhouse on the first evening - great food and service and a warm, friendly staff. The entertainment on the Dream was the best we have experienced in several ...

We just returned from a week on the Carnival Dream. I travelled with my 2 sons (9 and turned 12 the day of debarkation). We had a wonderful time on the Dream. Embarkation and debarkation were both excellent. We had Fast to the Fun and got priority but the regular lines looked short as well. We were on the ship in 15 minutes and off in about the same amount of time. This always makes for happy ...

Carnival Dream was okay.  Meals were okay. Breakfasts were normally made to order omelets and they were good. Lunches were from the buffet (one brunch at the main dining room), decent food and choices. The brunch was fine but not worth taking a long time in the dining room to eat. Dinners were just okay, not bad but nothing really worth writing home about either. My biggest complaint with dinners ...

Embarkation was fairly simple. They had 2 ladies checking in a room full of Diamond, Platinum, and Suite Guests and finally someone from another area came to get us and check us in. My biggest complaint was the ship could not handle everyone eating lunch and embarking was an absolute nightmare. Took us 20 minutes to find a seat! Pool hogs get their chairs at 7am and only once did I see Carnival ...
