Booked on Carnival Dream for Sep 25th cruise. In reading the reviews (I like to be a little prepared when I cruise on a ship for the 1st time
) I see a lot of chat about the Ocean Plaza and how it is a great place for lunch and avoids the crowds in the Gathering for lunch. Can someone who has already cruised the Carnival Dream shed some light on this? Is this a good deal? And what foods are available?
Also heard that the dining room is open during embarkation. Any comments here?
