My personal rating would be Eurodam on top (lovely ship - we did this for 12 nights for a Baltic cruise), followed by the Liberty of the Seas (we did this to the Caribbean), followed by the Dream (done similar ships, but haven't done this - have gotten alot of feedback from clients), and then the Fantasy (did this for 3 nights quite a while ago).
Would like to hear about your experience and how you rate them when you come back.

Hi Tommy, we just got off the Carnival Dream yesterday. It's a huge ship with all kinds of extra's. Personally, we enjoyed the cruise, but the ship and the large population of cruiser's were more than we'd like to do again.
You really can't compare the Carnival Fantasy to this ship. The Fantasy is "small". You may love the Dream for all the options, or you may hate it for the crowded conditions and having to walk "miles" to get from one place to another.
We're going back to the smaller ships .
Have a wonderful cruise,

We just got back from the Dream cruise to the Eastern Carib (6-13 Oct 2012). I am going to post a short review later today or tomorrow. In short we enjoyed the cruise and the ship is really beautiful. Check out my review later.
