We just salied on the Dream 1/22/11 and had a great time. The entertainment was excellent! We spent hours at the comedy club with some great comedians. Most of the staff was very friendly. They automatically put the tips on your bill the last day but you can adjust them as we did for service that wasn't up to standards.

The only negative thing I will say is that the food is not good. You will always find something to eat like the sandwhich station but that's about the only good thing to eat. I didn't gain any weight because there really wasn't anything I tried that was worth finishing. The desserts were gross so I stuck to the ice cream machine. The pasta bar was nasty as well as the burrito bar. Most of the food tasted like it had ben microwaved and was previously frozen. The pizza bar was by far the most disappointing food station on the ship. It tasted like frozen pizza. Overall we still had a great time but we'll prob go with Royal Caribbean again next since they have better food than Carnival

We got a balcony room for the first time and were pleasantly surprised that is was a much larger room than what we've had in the past.

There was always a show to watch or some activity to do but they were very busy because of the amount of passengers on board this mega ship. We tried to miniture golf but they were out of balls. The water slides were fun but tore up our back with a very painful strawberry.

Don't waste money on a transfer from Orlando airport. It is much cheaper to rent a car from Avis (one way rental) and drop it off at port for only $30. Our friends paid $75 pp. for their transfer.
