Hi. Just off Dream today and had a spa cabin. There was no "Welcome Ritual". I called before we left to inquire about it and the Carnival Rep had no idea what I was talking about. We went on day one for the spa raffle and for tour but there was no "Welcome Ritual". There was a letter in the room from the spa and spa robes and slippers in the room too.

We did. I loved it. The room with the heated loungers was my favorite. There was another room (intense steam) that really helped with my sinuses. The other steam room (not so intense steam) stunk like a monkey house at the zoo.(lol) It's the oriental one. I couldn't sit in there because I couldn't stand the smell. The thelassotherapy pool was nice too. It was just warm...not hot at all. The locker rooms were nice and there is a nice cool-down room too. I loved the Dream and especially enjoyed the spa cabin. My son's cabin was under the treadmills so that was a little bothersome and we could hear the weights slamming onto the floor every once in a while from my cabin. Sounded like thunder...The halls were very quiet..

We flew out of Buffalo too! Staying at a hotel near MCO tonight to fly home in morning. I heard we've got a ton of snow. Not looking forward to going back to that.
