  3. Carnival Dream
We have enjoyed many cruises with Carnival and 3 on the Dream. We chose this cruise because it was going to Key West. We choose cruises by destination. We like to go new places and see different and interesting things. We like the Burgundy Lounge comedy and the Encore shows on the Dream. Breakfast in the Scarlet Restaurant is great. The BlueIguana Cantina, the Mongolian Wok, Tandoor and Guy's Burger Joint are all excellent. There is so much to do it can be hard to decide where onboard to go to next. There are a lot of choices for shore excursions. Our child (daughter) is 25 and we hope to be empty nesters someday. She stayed home while we went on this cruise. The service on Carnival is outstanding, everyone is so very friendly and helpful. The only disappointment with this cruise was the room. This was the first time I used Carnival Cruise for assistance booking this cruise. Bad mistake! Never again! Book on your own! Was not allowed to choose a room, was tole that he would insure we got a great room. Worst room I have ever had on a cruise! I thought Elvis was there, A WHOLE LOT OF SHAKING GOING ON! During leaving or entering port the room would shake so bad that things were falling off of the desk. The room was so far from the Encore we did not have to visit the jogging track or gym. Got plenty of exercise on this cruise. Sure we look forward to more cruises in the future, just not with help from Vladimir at Carnival.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View
Cabin 6M 2501
Very small, limited seating, heavy vibration during entering and leaving port. The room was shaking so bad things were falling off of the desk. I joked with my wife and asked if she put a quarter in the bed!
