This is our whole group in front of the Christmas tree in the main lobby.
I am sitting on the deck looking for whales or dolphins which I never saw.
It really feels like you are swimming with them but you never get wet!

My family was giving a cruise as a graduation gift. It was her first cruise and it was so great! The ship was so impressive; especially the laser light show and the line dance that when from top to bottom of the ship at the party, and the Serenity deck made for the perfect relaxing place to hide. The ports were so beautiful and the weather couldn't have been any better.The staff went above board ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

9 Day Dream Re-positioning to New Orleans

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 ...

We sailed on the Dream March 8-15. We booked FTTF but since the bridge got stuck, by the time we got to embarkation there were no lines and so FTTF didn't help with boarding. We did get to go right to our cabin (balcony 8436) and drop our stuff off and head up to lunch. Food - didn't love the buffet at lunch - the indian was good and so was the wok if you were willing to wait 40 minutes. My ...

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 ...

BORING

There is only one word for this cruise experience “BORING”. The Carnival Dream creaked and banged causing us to have sleepless nights, the room air conditioner did not work properly, and the daily activities were limited. The morning activities did not start until 9:00 A.M. where on other ships the activities were too numerous that we had to choose between several and determine which ones we ...

We go to Florida every year at this time and stay at a resort home, We have a 14 year old and 16 year old that just can’t keep entertained without going out and doing other things outside the resort. I feel like I am their personal program director. This year we decided to go on a cruise with the kids and we chose Carnival Dream, we thought there will be lots of kids and things to do for them ...
