Talking Carnival Dream
My cruise on the Dream was wonderful! I knew it would be. The ship is absolutely amazing! We had dinner each night in the Crimson dining room. Again, we had great waiters and the food was fantastic. One evening we went to the Chef's Art Steakhouse... The food was great, but I don't know if it was worth the extra money. With wine, it cost me over $100...No regrets, I just don't think it was worth the extra money. The food in the MDR was super. We ate most of our breakfasts and lunches at the Gathering. Good food but a little bit of a wait. The Pasta Bar was very good also, but we absolutely loved the barbecues on sea days on the Lanai. The ribs were to die for!
Our Cove balcony was incredible! We absoltely loved it. When you are that close to the water, you can really see and feel the speed of the ship.
The entertainment was very, very good. Where do they get such talented performers?
We went to Paradise Beach in Cozumel...Great of a string of great beaches..,We went cave tubing in Belize with Major Tom...Breathtaking ride through the caves! Belize itself, is extremely poor, but the adventure was well worth it. We were disappointed in Roatan. The captain did not think it was safe to take the ship in because of the high winds. I really wanted to visit that port. The last stop was Costa Maya. We just sat in some lounge chairs and watched the dolphins perform and soaked in some sun. Beautiful weather every day!
I made my annual contributions to the casino, however, I did rack up 1500 points on the slots and received free drinks the last day! I did managed to get a little back that way. I recommend the mojitos!
We bought another $100 certificate for the next cruise!
The Dream is indeed a DREAM!
