  3. Carnival Dream
Embarkation in New Orleans was smooth and efficient as always. We were on the ship by noon. The Dream is a big nice ship. Very clean, Never felt crowded. Food in MDR was excellent. We had YTD and it was great for us. All food on the ship overall was good, but I found Guys BBQ to not be very good BBQ. I only had the lido buffet once, but found it to be satisfactory. Crew was always working to keep the ship clean, and all staff did a good job, Our cabin steward, Mara did a fantastic job on our room. i found most of the shows to be entertaining, and the cruise director was very good. Enjoyed the coffee shop on deck and the prices were very reasonable for coffee. Roatan was fantastic, We went to Little French Key, and will go again. Belize, we took the Carnival Snorkeling excursion and was not impressed. A 45 minute boat ride to a sand bar in the ocean. Snorkeling was not ideal as equipment was awful, and current too strong to enjoy the snorkeling. Cozumel, we went to Mr. Sanchos and it was excellent as always. Disembarkation was fast and we were off the boat at 10am.

Great cruise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8D 7376
Standard balcony cabin. Great location midship, not noisy. Only complaint was that the cabin was very warm at times. i requested a fan from guest services, and it helped cool the room.
