Carnival Dream Cruise Review by Megan H
- Sail Date: August 2016
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Interior
I wont go into every detail...but we had a blast because our family has fun together. Ship looked a bit worn in spots but generally was nice. The layout was better than other ships I've been on, easy to navigate.
Entertainment: There was a band that played outside the casino that was awesome. Singers were great (had a horn section). DJ played great music in the club. I didnt go to the shows (i could hear them in my cabin haha..see cabin review) but my mom and nephew went and had fun. Didnt see the comedians. Karaoke was great. Went to a few dance lessons which was a blast. Pool area stuff was fun as usual, upbeat atmosphere and good music..Service around the pool was great. One morning the entire pool area and chairs were literally covered with towel animals..really cool.
But...I HAVE to comment on this solo guitar act that was in the atrium all week..BUZZ KILL. I am sure Emma means well, but really!!! "Country Roads" by John Denver and every other folk song made more depressing than it already is? Not sure why they have her there. Very strange. Sorry Emma....I want to hear upbeat songs..I am on vacation!!
Jase the cruise director seemed aloof and talked so fast during his announcements nobody understood anything he said. But we just ignored him anyway.. sorry Jase.
Ports were beautiful. Cozumel (we went to Mr Sanchos..a blast!!) and Roatan ( we went to Little French Key..heaven) were incredible. Belize suffered a hurricane the week before we were there so our excursion was cancelled, (bummer) The port looked worned out and the poor trees were stripped. People were nice though. Warning..Belize requires a really long tender ride and an even longer wait in the lounge to get on (an hour) be prepared.
Food in the dining room was good. Service was beyond good. Our waiters, Ikadek, Iwayan and Igede were incredible..will be letting Carnival know this! We were always made to feel special. Buffet was ok, the usual.(long lines, ok food) We didnt eat there much anyway. The indian food place was really good (near rear pool) and the pizza yummy, really good thin crust..never took too long. All in all the service was really great! From the bar staff, pool bars to our waiters..everyone really friendly.
The only person that was bad was this front desk woman named Marina (spelling?) Very rude. whatever!! who cares, my family is easy going..didnt let it get to us.
Debarkation was smooth. All in all we had a wonderful time...great trip and great memories...can't wait for our next cruise!
