  3. Carnival Dream
The Dream was another dream vacation for our family. Our 17 year old son and nine year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed themselves again. We buy "Faster to the Fun" when we cruise and even with the staggered embarkation we are still feel it is a great value. We parked and we're on the ship within 20 minutes. No problems. The real value comes in ports and when it is time to go home you are first off the ship. Our dining staff was FANTASTIC! They really make your family feel special. Our daughter really enjoys the towel animals and our cabin was cleaned twice daily. Again, no problems, our cabin steward was great! I don't understand some of the negative reviews. Each and every crew member we came in contact was friendly and helpful. Our family really enjoyed the many entertainment options each night. We saw every production show, the clean comedy shows as a family, and we really enjoyed The Cruise Director, the Flying Scotsman, he is one heck of an entertainer. All in all we loved every minute of our cruise and all the ports we visited. We cannot wait for our next Carnival Cruise. The value that you receive for the money is unmatched by any other vacation. Our kids would rather cruise on Carnival than go to Walt Disney World again, which works for me as Carnival is a better vacation as a family and much more affordable.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8C 7386
We were on the Empress deck and had a nice balcony with one upper and couch. The room was big enough for the 4 of us. Our bathroom was a little bigger on this ship. The balcony was great to sit on and read before the kids woke up.
