Carnival Dream Tips

Try visiting the barbecue section on the ship for lunch. The food is a welcomed change.

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.

Get out to the 10th deck early to get a seat by the pool at night to watch movies

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!

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.

Enjoy a sit down breakfast. Great way to meet wonderful people and get pointers from seasoned cruisers. Skip the Mongolian station - took an hour.

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!!!

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!

Cruise Reviews

Got off of the Dream, reluctantly, on 5/1/2016. The ship is an amazing ship! On the day of embarkation, we had a 10:30am check-in time at the port. On that same day the Dream had a Coast Guard inspection so unfortunately we did not get to board until noon. Other than that embarkation day was great. The ship is beautiful and the staff was very friendly! The pasta grill was excellent, we did that on the first day and really enjoyed it. The rooms were ready promptly at 1:30pm like they said they would be and the room was great. Was told beforehand by John Heald that we could get both morning and evening service, when the steward asked us what we wanted I requested both. After that we ended up only getting morning service anyway, not a huge deal though because I was on vacation. We ate in the main dining room for Sea Day Brunch and it was outstanding. The staff in the dining room was great and very attentive for sea day brunch and for dinner. We did go to the steakhouse on the first night and the food was outstanding, I think it is well worth the extra $35/person. We did not go to the shows or the comedy club, it's not our thing. We did a lot of the trivia and listened to the live music in the Ocean Plaza and thought it was outstanding. The waterworks, aft pool, and serenity decks were great and we never had any issue finding a lounger. Igor and Mary Grace in the Ocean Plaza Bar and Warren and Suripta in the Casino were some of the best bartenders/bar waiters we have had on a cruise ship. The only negative things I can say about the ship itself was the slow elevators. There were 3 elevators that were out of service for the entire 7 days. And this was the only cruise I have been on where people would rush an elevator even if it was full to go down 1 story. Needless to say I took the stairs quite a bit. Debarkation was very quick and we got off the ship earlier than expected. I loved the Dream and there never was a single smell of sewer, however our room did have plumbing issues halfway through the cruise, but after a quick call to guest services it was taken care of with no further issues. I loved the Dream and would definitely sail on her again!

There was always something going on.  This was our first cruise and we'll definitely go again.  We're glad we got the balcony room.  The cleaning people kept the room spotless.  All of the waitstaff was very friendly.  But the food could have been a little better.  It was very good, but not great.  I still ate a ton!  The breakfast was nothing to brag about.  But there was something for everyone in all departments.  We left the kids at home, but it was very kid friendly.  There was also a "serenity" deck for 21+ that was very quiet.  The comedy acts were great, the shopping was fantastic, and there was so much to do.  Certainly not enough time, even though it was a week long.  Even the port excursions were awesome and reasonably priced.  I'd recommend to anyone and will bring the kids next time.
