Default Just Back From The Carnival Dream & Review

I just got back last Sunday from my cruise on the Carnival Dream. I had a great time and a lot of fun.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask! I would be more than happy to answer any questions about the ship or itinerary I did the Bahamas itinerary to Key West, Freeport, & Nassau.

I am also writing a review on my blog and just wanted to share a link here in case anybody wants to view my photos that I am posting. I don't have all of my photos or review pieces online yet because of time constraints. Here are my photos and review:

It would be a great ship if it had the 2.0 upgrades!

I think it's a GREAT SHIP because it DOESN'T have the 2.0 upgrades! Still got the BIG shows, with lots of dancers and singers, and the BIG band. Still got the great food and service in the dining rooms, instead of the American Table thingy. I really enjoyed my last two or three cruises aboard "Dream", and hated to see it leave our Florida Ports.

I HOPE I enjoy it as much as you have. No Alchemy Bar nor Guy's is a BIG deal to me. My two favorite places on Carnival ships. I will go more Mongolian Grill, Deli, and room service BLT's to make up for Guy's.

Doing Triumph again on 7/28 Sky. They have the Big Band, Big Production Shows, MDR's with regular menu AND an Alchemy Bar and Guy's Burgers. Almost perfect, but no Mongolian Grill.

It's a GREAT cruise Snooze! You are gonna have a fantastic time.
Triumph, and Liberty have the best of all worlds IMO. They both have the 2.0 food and alcohol venues, but retain the 1.0 BIG shows and band.

I agree. I like the 2.0 features in some areas, but I want to keep the old style entertainment.
