  3. Carnival Dream
This was my first cruise. I had a great time. The room steward we had was absolutely the best and went out of their way to make our voyage fantastic. Entertainment was amazing. Only issue I had with the food was the blandness they tend to need to fix it to accommodate the most food tastes. While the food was bland it was good. The dining room had a different menu every night (other than a few same items including desserts). The buffet was pretty standard stuff. The other restaurants and specialty food was amazing. The real negative was the unlimited soda package I purchased. I will never do it on a Carnival ship unless they make changes. You need to go a ways to get soda, which I could have lived with, but the closest bar to our stateroom was the casino. I think the shortest time I had to wait before service was at least 5 minutes. Never got more than 3-4 sodas the whole trip.
