Carnival Dream Tips

mjmauldin
Get out to the 10th deck early to get a seat by the pool at night to watch movies
expose11
Eat dinner around 6pm so you can go to the show after and then go straight to the comedy club after the show. They really have the timing right on when shows start so you don't have to miss anything. Relax and let people do stuff for you.
BobinBiloxi
Check out the adults-only Serenity Deck on board the Carnival Dream. It's near the top of the ship and is a quiet place to get away from much of the noise down below. They have a bar and lots of comfortable places to enjoy watching the ocean glide by. Try a Kiss on the Lips drink! Tasty!
perarive78
Go with money to spent don't try to be cheap book your excursions ahead of time it's worth it bring soda and water with you if you don't want to spent on that.
kbrownin
Enjoy a sit down breakfast. Great way to meet wonderful people and get pointers from seasoned cruisers. Skip the Mongolian station - took an hour.
CrusinTim
Make sure to book a Cove Balcony.

go do the brunch in the dining room awsome everything is fresh an made to order even the coffee is better u can sit down an relax an enjoy ur breakfast in comfront
Stucklikeglue
Great service in dining room at breakfast. Fast service and no lines.Try the BBQ out on deck 5 outside. Floor 14 and 15 for adults is a must. The hammocks are to die for. They need more. The one slide was disappoining because you don't go all the way down. Have to walk down stairs the rest of the way. Otherwise the Dream was the best I have been on. Loved it!!!
Joycie99
Look at your map, ship is easy to navigate but there is so much to see and do, that you don't want to overlook anything. Be sure to try a brunch one morning in the dining room, fantastic menu!
Dini1943
Whe did breakfast in the diningroom, not so crowded as Lido.

Cruise Reviews

No such thing as a bad ship! We love cruising! Jason and preval were our wait staff and they were the best I have ever had! We were in scarlet! The staff in the buffet area were so attentive to my mother whose is in a wheel chair! They carried her food! We did deadmans reef in Freeport it was excellent! We booked thru them so we got there early, and had plenty of chairs and equipment. If you get there later you may have to wait! Also you can take a cab which maybe cheaper! Overall this was our favorite! As for the cruise there were plenty of loungers, surprised me because ship was sold out! I even got in the hot tub on the lanai for a few minutes! Happy cruusing!

The ship is gorgeous! I have always been a fan of Carnival, and this was my first time onboard the Dream. I believe it's my new favorite ship! Our room steward was wonderful. He and his team took phenomenal care of us and worked hard day and night. They would make an effort to greet us by name each time we passed in the hallway. The food was delicious as it always is on Carnival. Entertainment was top notch! Especially Edd Carr, the acoustic guitarist who plays on the Lido deck and in the Casino Bar. All of the staff was friendly, and helpful for the most part. However, the dining room staff seemed rude. I have sailed with Carnival for years and never had worse experiences. Now, this was not each night. But, on both of the formal nights, they would not allow my husband and I to enter because he was wearing shorts. He didn't pack anything other than these shorts. We are on a cruise! Again, we have cruised before and this has never been an issue. They were dressy shorts, too. Not like he was wearing gym shorts..... And on the nights that we were allowed in, service was slow. I can honestly say that we had good service in the dining room one night. For that reason, I took part of our automatic tips off of our bill. I gave the part that would have gone to the dining staff in cash to my room steward instead. He definitely worked harder for it! Overall, it was a great trip! Enjoy! :)
