Hi Everyone! My family and I just returned from the Carnival Dream, 2/19/11 sailing. I wasn't planning on writing a trip report AT ALL, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I DID want to do one. I have only written one trip report before, for the Norwegian Crown to Bermuda sailing on 7/15/07. (The link is in my signature, so if anyone wants to read what I think is an oldie, but a goodie, it's there.) It's really filled with details that I wouldn't even remember were it not for the trip report, so that is a plus. Without further ado, I will now begin this trip report, in similar fashion to the other one from almost four years ago. (Yes, there will be some major copying and pasting going on, especially in the introduction, with a few minor changes…….)

And on with the show:

Hello Fellow Cruisers, including Experienced Cruisers, New Cruisers, People Who Want to Cruise Someday, and Everyone Else!!! After NUMEROUS requests (Well, it was actually just one from ONE close friend of mine ….you know who you are!!) I present to you my SECOND trip report, review, etc. I have picked up so many helpful tips from so many people on this forum for our recent cruise that I felt like the least I could do to show my thanks was to share a little about our great vacation. (I totally copied that last sentence from my last trip report, but it still holds very true, several years later.)

**Disclaimer: I didn’t take any notes, since I did not know I would be doing this when I returned, so it won’t be too chock full of details, but I don’t want to put anyone to sleep anyway!!!

Background information: My family and I went on the 7 night sailing of the Carnival Dream on 2/19/11. The scheduled ports were Cozumel, Belize, Roatan and Costa Maya. We had not taken a 7 nighter since the NCL Crown mentioned above, so we were thrilled to doing so, this time with our two great girls, ages 12 and 5. We have been on several other Carnival cruises, a few on RCCL, one on NCL and one on Disney. This was NOT a last minute vacation. We planned and planned for what seemed like a long time. (Probably seemed a lot longer to my husband, with all my planning, questions, changes, ideas, etc.) Love you, Frank……that's not really his name, but more about that later…..

We were so excited to be going on a new, large ship, with a great itinerary to the Western Caribbean, and for 7 days! Our originally booked cove balcony on deck 2 would eventually change to a regular balcony on deck 8. (I jumped on that for an extra few dollars.) And yes, the Splendor incident did influence that decision for me. Call me crazy, as my husband would, many, many times! Were we sorry we didn't stay with the cove? Was our regular balcony cabin a good choice? More about that later…..

Being ever faithful to checking Early Saver rates, we ended up boarding with almost a $400 onboard credit, along with a few fare drops before final payment! I can't even begin to describe that feeling of excitement!!! Soon, despite all the snowstorms we had in January, what seemed like day after day and week after week, it was time to get ready to go. (And yes, the addition of trip insurance was inevitable with the winter we were having!!)

Anyway, back to the trip. After a full day of school and work for all of us, we began the drive to Newark Airport on Friday night. Translation: We sat in traffic for quite some time on Friday night. But we made it with some time to spare, found ourselves faced with a flight delay anyway - only an hour - and arrived in Tampa around midnight. We could not believe we would be boarding the Carnival Dream in less than twelve hours!

We made the trip to Port Canaveral without much incident, just some traffic on 1-4. We got to Port and even though we have seen the Dream docked before, we were breathtaking with her beauty. (I always have that feeling when we cruise, each and every time we see our ship. I am always impressed by the sizes of these vessels. It's the same feeling I get each and every time we walk down Main Street in Magic Kingdom and I see the castle. Priceless!)

There was a line outside the terminal, which has never happened to us, but it moved relatively quickly, and soon we were onboard. (It was mid winter recess for us, and with President's Week, the ship was packed, but we tend to travel during peak seasons, so that is what we are used to.) We were soon eating lunch and couldn't wait to check out our room and drop off our two bottles of wine and one bottle of mixer, and explore our new home for the next week.

Up next: First impressions, our first dinner at sea, and more trip reporting!!! Until then…..

Departure day, continued: There were a lot of people on the ship….can't remember the exact number, maybe 4000 something total. But I do remember there were 1100 kids onboard for our sailing. It is a lot of people, and aside from the few (make that more than few) rude ones who need to learn elevator manners…please let us off the elevator before you try to push your way one, the lines were not terrible for us. We really couldn't complain about that. The pools were crowded and the throw a towel on a chair people will always be a problem, so I try not to let that bother me. (And yes, I have been known to gently move a towel if someone hasn't been there in awhile.)

Burrito bar was my first meal onboard. Great as always! And on another day, we did visit the pasta restaurant upstairs. Great hidden gem on the ship. After the safety drill at our muster stations - no life jackets required seems to be the norm nowadays - we headed to the aft pool to meet some people from at the bar from our Roll Call. I'm glad we did this. I wore my rubber ducky mardi gras beads, as promised, and it was nice to put a face to the screen names we had been chatting with in the months leading up to the sailing. It was a nice feeling to bump into a friendly face thought the cruise of someone we had met on that very first day.

We had early seating for dinner. The dining room was gorgeous and we were seated in the main section, something that has never happened to us before. I loved being right in the middle of all the action. We were seating with my mom and stepdad, and another family of 5. If you are out there reading this, we are so glad to have had the chance to meet you. You are truly good people, special people, and are hoping our paths will cross again this summer!! I liked having a larger table. I've always enjoyed hearing about other people's excursions, experiences, etc. and seeing our new friends throughout the cruise. Our server was Jaco from South Africa and he was assisted by Chonthicha. He was by far the best server we have had on all our cruises combined. Our 5 year old daughter decided then and there that Jaco was her boyfriend, and one of the highlights of her trip was dancing to Low, Low, Low with him!!!! (Cruise Director Butch was seated near us with some friends of his. I quickly decided that he would be my boyfriend!)

Kidding aside, Butch Begovitch is an outstanding cruise director and an asset to the Carnival company. We had sailed with him before, on the Fantasy. The energy that this man has is contagious. He is truly a professional, and someone who enjoys his job, which is so nice to see. We had the chance to speak with him, and he is just so personable and caring. (And yes, I will admit, he smells really good!!!) Kudos to the outstanding job that Butch did. We don't always remember the name of the cruise director after the fact, or sometimes even during it. Butch's name will not be erased from our memories!

THe Welcome Aboard show was very good….lots of laughs came about with a few people in the audience on stage and the work of Butch. We were on vacation, and life was good……

Up next: Sea day, Cozumel, and trivia, oh my!

Hi Everyone,
Long day today....work, dinner with the family, and......almost caught up on the vacation laundry!
I've gotten the Capers/Dailies/Fun Times together from our trip, along with a few notes of things we did, so I'll be adding to this trip report in the next day or two.
(Yes, this might be a shameless plug and bump back up onto a more recent page of threads on the boards!)
Have a great night!!

Thank you for taking the time to do this trip report. My BFF and her hubby were on your sailing (first time cruisers), and they thought the ship was beyond crowded w/ people! (Especially on Sea Days---Chair hogs in particular). My family (DH, me, our 4 kids ages 5-10, and my parents) just booked the Oct. 15th sailing on the Dream...I am like a sponge, absorbing any and all details! :-)

I am considering booking this cruise for next April. My kids are not a fan of the Kids Club activities, etc. but I was wondering what they have for them on the pool deck area besides the water slides. Do they have rock climbing?, rapelling?, etc.

There wasn't any type of rock climbing structure on this ship. I'm sure there were activities by the pool deck for the kids. Maybe someone else can answer with more specifics about activities....I know there was a bean bag toss - not sure where it was held though - and I know my girls played Twister, but not by the pool.

There is the whole waterworks slide area above the pool deck. My girls had so much fun there. There is also a nice mini golf course up above.

Hi Everyone!

And now, back to our regularly scheduled report……

Sunday, 2/20 - SEA DAY

After a good first night's sleep, we got up, and I had that wonderful feeling I always have at the beginning of a vacation…….that we have the whole week ahead of us. This was especially exciting to me because we would be on the ship for one week, since our recent cruises have been shorter ones. (Someday I would like to take a back to back!) We went to the dining room for breakfast. We like to do that if it works out….it makes us feel more like we are on vacation than the buffet does….and I'm not sure if we had ordered our morning coffee for the room/balcony the night before, but we probably did.

I must apologize right now, because this first full cruise day, this at sea beginning to our next week on the Dream, is a bit blurry to me. (And no, it's not because of the bottle of Absolut waiting for us in our room upon arrival thanks to Bon Voyage!!!) I really don't think we did much. We probably explored the ship, which I must say, was VERY easy to navigate since its layout was so similar to the other Carnival cruises we have taken. I like things to be familiar to me, so this was right up my alley!!

Of course, the girls checked out Camp Carnival and Circle C, which I must say were on two completely opposite ends of said familiar ship….and desired activities for both girls ALWAYS seemed to start and end at the same exact time for each group, again, on different ends of the ship! Isn't that always how it is???

I do know the husband and I played in the slot tournament. No luck here. And we also played some trivia. Of course, the luck showed up for this!! Ships on a stick in hand, and a medal around the husband's neck for some other game show…life was indeed good!!

How could I forget???? We went to the food and wine pairing in the Chef's Art Steakhouse!! This was wonderful, except for the noise of the basketball court the entire time right above our Chardonnay and Reisling sipping heads!!! (For the record, we were told the basketball courts do close in time for dinner. So if you are planning a romantic dinner up there, it will not be a problem!!!) Now, back to the food and wine pairing. It was fantastic! My husband and I have done several wine "tastings" on past cruises, and we always enjoy it. There's something to be said about sipping the wine and "experiencing" it with a sommelier at hand. The standard fare has always been some cheese, fruit and crackers with the wine tasting. This however, was a food pairing, so we each received a plate of various foods to taste with the different wines to experience the different flavors that come from the wines with different foods. Amazing. Really amazing. I was impressed. And of course, the filet mignon and salmon pieces left me wanting more! Since this was a family trip and we had some spa time planned for a day during the week ahead, we did not get to the Steakhouse for dinner. But it is something I would like to experience someday. Also, I must point out, in my next life, I think I might want to be sommelier on a cruise line! (Of course, with people like my husband and myself at my wine tastings and pairings!)

Somewhere along the way, before dinner, the girls played in a Twister contest. (At least I think it was this day. It might not have been, but let's just go with it…remember the blurry and fuzzy part, and no, it didn't have to do with the wine pairing either!) We had the honor and privilege of eating dinner with no other than one of the Twister champions that evening! The little one won first place and the older one came in second. Great job, girls! You made Mom proud!!!

I'm sure dinner ended with someone having the chocolate melting cake…..I'm sure a deposit, I mean visit, to the casino was made. Even though I regretted not making it to Butch's Crazy Disco Dance class, I was looking forward to tomorrow. We would be at Cozumel and these snowy New Yorkers were looking forward to some beach time with the kids. We were also hoping to get a day pass to the spa. I had been dreaming of trying out the Thalassotherapy Pool for sometime now. Would we be one of the lucky twenty couples?????

Kidding aside, Butch Begovitch is an outstanding cruise director and an asset to the Carnival company. We had sailed with him before, on the Fantasy. The energy that this man has is contagious. He is truly a professional, and someone who enjoys his job, which is so nice to see. We had the chance to speak with him, and he is just so personable and caring. (And yes, I will admit, he smells really good!!!) Kudos to the outstanding job that Butch did. We don't always remember the name of the cruise director after the fact, or sometimes even during it. Butch's name will not be erased from our memories!
First of all I must say I love your review so far. I really enjoy reading long reviews. So many little details.

Butch is great. I've had him twice. The first time he was the Assistant Cruise Director on the Liberty in 2006 and the second was on the Glory in 2008. He was great both times. Very friendly! He was always out and about talking to the cruisers making jokes and making sure everyone was having a great time.

Thank you for your kinds words!

Yes, Butch is great! On the Roatan day, he was even out on deck moving bundles of chairs, telling people he will find them great seats, since seating was at a premium. He is truly a cruise director that is out there with the people, and who enjoys them!!!!
