It was a group of 24. We were not pleased at all. The staff was not friendly at all, no sense of humor in the dinning room or the Bar lounge's. I ordered a Congratulations decoration for one of the guest that finished Grad school and it was not the decorations that was advertised. They did refunded my money. I also ordered 2 cakes for my sister an a friend who turned 50 and they didn't put the names on it, they said they would. The bars and lounges are smaller than other ships. The AC on the ship was not working good, it was HOT all over. We had 11 cabins and maybe 3 of the rooms fridges worked. The iron in the iron room caught on fire while I was ironing my shirt. The casino is really small. I have been on about 7 cruises between Carnival & Royal and to me and my group the Dream was the worst. They didn't even have that many events for the quests to choose from. The club and casino closed at the same time 3am. Usually the casino stays open all nite. I am 48 and my groups ages ranged from 22 to 57 yrs old and we all had the same complaints. Sorry, I wouldn't push this ship. The Group coordinator & the room guy were VERY nice and helpful. Oh an Melody the entertainment lady really nice. I had 5 first time cruisers, 2 people celebrating their 50th Bdays and 1 celebrating finishing Grad school, She gave me 8 Carnival Medals for me to present to them and make them feel special. Plus Helped with the mix up with the Bday cakes.

It was ok. Breakfast you have to ask for the over cooked Bacon, Not like other cruise's you get what you want. 6pm dinning you have to wait a hour for your food then it's luke warm to cold. They had nasty card board pizza after 1am and that was all they had to offer.

Stateroom was hot and Fridge did not get cold. Room guy was GREAT! Very attentive!

Not enough to choose from like other ships. Lounges and Bars are to small. Casino is way smaller then other Carnival Cruises. They need ADULT ONLY Karaoke. WAY to many kids could not enjoy ourselves because of the kids. They also need UP TO DATE MUSIC, the music was all old.. (Pop, R&B,Rock)

We enjoyed all excursions. We did our own off ship. Booking through the ship was to expensive.
