  3. Carnival Dream
We chose the Carnival Dream because we been on fantasy class and wasn't too impressed at all. We loved this ship! The only negatives I have is the great restaurants wasn't open long enough at all! On port days they were open till 3:30 but we still had to hurry to get there before they closed. The main reason to pick certain ships is the offerings of activities and food places. Carnival needs to reconsider this option in future to stay open later. Also, I got a voucher first night for a free drink because I am a gold member and wasn't allowed to use it till last night after 5pm! I think that is ridiculous on our 7 night cruise. Carnival should be ashamed for that tactic i love Carnival but things need to be changed I think. I was excited to become a gold member this cruise and it was stingy with a drink they sell all the time. I think there should be better music choices also, newer music on lido deck. The cruise director Lee Mason was awesome! He was energetic and always had activities going on. Please Carnival fix some of these issues! We thought about going with Nowegian to knows in the future.

Beautiful ship

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8E 6480
Our balcony was very nice! The balcony stayed with standing water after they washed the ship and it was dirty and messy.
