    Enchantment or Dream

    Booking a cruise for next May and I need to decide between Royal Enchantment and Carnival Dream, since we need a short cruise from Galveston. Looking for opinions on which would be better. We have cruised and enjoyed both lines before. It will be my DH and myself and our adult children (mid twenties). Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
  2. We sailed on the Dream out of NOLA on 9/3. We parked at the Fulton Street Garage which was what everyone said it would be -- easy, convenient, and significantly less expensive than parking at the port. The ride to the terminal took all of 10 minutes! Thanks to everyone on this board, we parked on the roof, right in front of the exit ramp. We went down the ramp with our luggage, hopped on the elevator, and we were on a shuttle to the terminal within five minutes! We purchased FTTF. It was sold out for the longest time. I checked twice a day, every day, until finally a slot became available... The best $70 we could have ever spent! First of all, the prior Dream cruise was late back to the port by two hours. We arrived at the port at 11AM and it was pure chaos! Anyone who had checkin times after 11AM had to wait outside. Because we had FTTF, we could walk right in, went right through "check-in," but had to sit in the terminal to board for approximately one hour as they were still disembarking from the previous cruise. We finally boarded after the weddings, platinum, and diamond cruisers. We went straight to our cabin, which was clean and ready for us. While we were unpacking our carry-ons, one of our checked-in bags arrived. Shortly thereafter, our second check-in bag arrived. We were good to go! My husband was skeptical of paying $70 for FTTF, however, after seeing how we received expedited service, he was convinced that it was money well-spent! I ate lunch at the Blue Iguana and my husband ate at the Mongolian Wok -- both were delicious! Throughout the week we enjoyed the MDR, Guys' Burgers, Mongolian Wok, the Indian Grill, the pasta restaurant, the pizza restaurant, and the Lido buffet -- none of which disappointed! The service was outstanding! We asked our cabin steward to freshen up our cabin twice a day, which he did with no issue. In fact, he did a great job keeping our cabin neat and clean, and greeted us every time he say us. Our cabin was one of the porthole cabins at the front of the ship on deck 2. We will not do that again! lol While it was nice having the cheapest "oceanview" cabin on the ship, the noise at times was unbearable. When the ocean got rough, the noise got louder. I assume it was the noise of the ship's nose cutting through the swells...not sure. Also, when they lowered the anchor at Grand Cayman, it was very noisy and very shaky! Other than that, our cabin was roomy, the beds were comfortable (one was the sofa bed, the other a twin bed -- they could not be put together), the towels were fluffy, the sheets were soft, our AC worked really well! The production shows were some of the best we have seen! All of the entertainers sang and danced... They did a great job -- they had a lot of energy and were all very talented. On the other hand, the singers in the lounges left a lot to be desired! They need to do a better job handling auditions (being a bit more selective)... The steel drum player was awesome! Chris, the Flying Scotsman, was awesome! He had sooooooo much energy and did a great job energizing the crowds! He said it was due to lots and lots of coffee (and I believe him)! For our stop in Jamaica, we took a Carnival excursion to climb Dunns Riverfalls and go to the Bamboo Beach Club for lunch. We don't normally buy cruiseline excursions, however, this was an all-day event (four hours roundtrip by bus to get to and from the falls)...too long of an excursion to risk getting back to the ship on time. Our tour guide was Tamara and she did an excellent job educating us about Jamaica! We had lunch and drinks at the Bamboo Beach Club (rum punch, mojitos, and beer). The lunch was very good. Tamara was our hostess and served us our lunch and drinks. The sea was beautiful! In Grand Cayman we took a cab to the Cemetery Beach to go snorkeling. What a great plan that turned out to be! The cab ride was only $6 each... The beach was secluded and empty. Note that there are NO facilities at this beach (no restrooms, no chairs, no umbrellas, no showers, no nothing)! We had our own snorkel gear so that was no problem. The snorkeling was great -- we had to swim quite a distance from shore to get to the coral, but the water was very calm so this was not an issue. We saw all kinds of marine life, including a small sea turtle, cuttlefish, flounders, and lots and lots of colorful fish. It was very nice and we enjoyed it thoroughly. We then flagged down a local bus to take us back to the port ($2.50 per person). In Cozumel we took a cab to the Money Bar where we snorkeled off of the beach. They allow you to use their lounge chairs, etc., with the expectation that you will buy drinks and food, which we did. We ate fajitas and ordered a couple of drinks, all of which was delicious. The current was very strong on this day, so we didn't go out too far for snorkeling. However, it was still unbelievably beautiful, even close to shore! Note that if you view your Sail and Sign Account on the TV in your room, it is not very accurate. Our gift cards did not show up on our account on the TV, and it showed that we were being charged for gratuities, even though we paid them in advance. After a visit to Guest Services, they explained that the TVs do not show the entire picture, we knew what to expect going forward. We spent a lot of time in the casino. I played deuces wild video poker and hit a jackpot of four deuces three times, which is pretty much unheard of! lol I guess the machines like me. My husband played blackjack at the tables and won and lost... We were celebrating my birthday on this cruise. Our friend John Heald sent me a plate of chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champagne, and a ship on a stick. Our cabin steward left me a $50 gift certificate for the spa. Our casino hosts sent me a delicious chocolate cake along with a nice birthday card. Finally, the MDR gave me a cake with a candle and sang Happy Birthday. It was a great birthday week!!! All-in-all -- this was a great cruise! The weather was perfect, the crew was awesome, the ship is beautiful (this was our second cruise on this ship), the ports were excellent, and everything went smoothly. We just booked our next cruise for 2019 on Holland America -- I'm not sure how I am going to be able to wait over a year for our next cruise!

    Carnival Dream Steakhouse

    How does one go about booking the steakhouse before boarding? And what day would be best to go on a 7 day cruise?

    Movies on the Dream

    Any idea what the poolside movie will be on the Dream in January? Do they change it every cruise or will it be the same movies they've shown this month?

    Carnival dream bartenders

    We’re cruising on the Dream in April. Does anybody have any experience on the ship with the bar staff? Anybody has any recommendations we would love to hear them! Thanks, Jess and Jen

    secret area on the Dream

    A long time ago I read about a "secret" area on the Dream that is quiet and a good spot to get some sun in a lounger away from the hustle of the ship. I want to say it's on one of the upper decks? Does anyone know where it is or is my mind playing tricks on me.

    Dream Class 4J

    I have the Breeze booked in April 2020 in a 4J (9201). I called Carnival as different websites are giving me different information on the features of the room. According to Carnival, this room, and the others in the category (specifically 6201 and 6202) have a desk and ottoman seat. I was hoping for couch/sofa that we can sit on to watch tv. The Carnival rep says the ottoman is sufficient for two people. Does anyone have a recent photo of these rooms so I can figure out what an ottoman seat is. Thanks!!
  8. I see that there is a smoking area on deck 5 Portside and deck 11 Starboard, midship and aft. I have not been able to find any specific locations. It is a big ship and I don't want to walk to the wrong end, lol! Any help would be appreciated. We have a ways to go before our cruise, but I have to pass the time. It has been to long since my last cruise and I am super excited! Any info will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  9. On my boarding pass for the Dream, I see Muster Station E4. Fine. From what I understand the drill is actually held indoors somewhere. We're deck 8 aft. Any ideas where they will send us for the drill? (This will be our first "inside" drill, if it's so.) Thanks in advance!

    CD On The Dream

    Just curious. The CD for our Dream cruise in February is Gary Blair Jr. Anyone have any idea/opinion about him? Emma Nixon was CD for our last cruise on the Sunshine and was excellent. Hopefully Gary can do as well....
  11. 12th cruise. All Carnival. Forth or fifth out of NOLA. Second on the Dream. Cruising since 2005. Long post. Read it if you want. What a great way to end possibly the hardest year of my life. Lost dad at the end of 2017, and spend most of 2018 dealing with all that goes with losing your last parent. Knew early on in 2018 that I would want to get away after Christmas, called my PVP, and she hooked us up. Drove to NOLA on Dec 27. Parked the Jeep at Machu Picchu parking and got a ride to the Marriott on Canal. Restaurants on our list: Cafe Maspero on Decatur in the Quarter - Food is good. We always grab a large hurricane to go from here. I think they are the best in the Quarter. Toast on Decatur in the Quarter - We tried this because Coop's was still closed for their Christmas break. A breakfast/brunch/lunch place. I has some sort of giant French Toast that was amazing, and their bacon was top notch. Can't tell you about drinks there as I was still working on my Cafe Maspero hurricane. Blue Oak BBQ on N Carrollton - We rode the street car directly to Blue Oak with the intention of walking over to City Park to walk through the Christmas lights (closed due to rain even tho it wasn't raining). The BBQ was top notch. I still prefer The Joint over in the Marigny, but I'd eat at Blue Oak on a consistant basis if I lived in town. They have quite a line up of bourbon if you are into that. I had a shot of the 2018 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon (very hard to find). New Orleans Cake Cafe & Bakery - We ran (yes, ran) from the hotel to the cafe for breakfast. Food & coffee were great. Coops on Decatur in the Quarter - One of my favorites. The service can seem a bit snarky. It's what they do. The food is good enough to get me in the door every trip down. The Pelican Club on Exchange Place in the Quarter - Picked this place on a recommendation from a FB group. Wow. Double wow. Chose from their Reveillon holiday menu and won every course. Molly's Rise & Shine on Magazine - Again, we ran down Magazine to breakfast. I thought this was just okay, but my wife loved it. Wayfare on Freret just north of the Garden District - Took a streetcar to Cadiz St stop then walked north up to Freret. Wound up here because we have a niece that works there that we haven't seen in years. Another wow. I wish I had this place around the corner. Food was great. GW Fins on Bienville in the Quarter - Another must go every trip. Food and service were amazing as ever. The Marriott on Canal was really nice. Very busy but no complaints at all. Angel at Machu Picchu always takes great care of us and our vehicles. Our van from the hotel to the cruise terminal was about 10 minutes EARLY. Arrived at the cruise terminal around 10:30am Sunday, Dec 30. 12 cruises gets you Platinum and that little red PRIORITY thing on your boarding pass. We were up in the priority lounge in about three minutes, and we were on the ship just after 11am. I wanted a balcony as we haven't had one in several cruises, and Kristen hooked us up with spa balcony on the deck 11. I was worried that we would be under the gym, but 11240 is far enough back that there was no noise at all from the spa/gym on deck 12. Room was immaculate. Edy our room steward was by far and away the best we've ever had. Dropped off our small bags, grabbed a drink, and walked the ship. We immediately noticed a difference in the cleanliness of the ship and in the perceived happiness of the crew. The ship was pretty much spotless and the crew all had smiles on their faces (all seven days). Watched the turn around and sail away from the front on deck 11. I always love the ride out and in on the river, and having the balcony this time was a bonus. We'll do the bad first... Sooner that you think on that first day it's 6pm and time for dinner - always an iffy subject with Carnival. Wife an I were assigned to table 432 (back of the lower Scarlet dining room) - a table set for 10. Soon enough three other couples (none traveling together) arrived, the last arriving around 6:15. I knew right away that we were in trouble. The staff waited until 6:30 to even bring menus. Never asked if we wanted tea. Did not seem to be in any hurry at all. And did not introduce themselves. The food was eh. We finally got out of there near 8pm. I had all but decided I was done in the MDR. We went back one more time. Service was just as bad. Food was eh again. We loved the two couples we got to know and we saw them all over the ship daily, including eating up on Lido a couple of times. They didn't go back either. Is this a ploy by MDR staff? To be so bad at their job that their workload disappears? Steakhouse reservations on New Years Eve. We love the steakhouse on Carnival ships and eat up there at least a couple of times each cruise. I must say that I was very disappointed with both of our meals up there on this cruise. Other than the steakhouse manager who greets you at the door, the staff seemed like they would rather be somewhere else (the only crew we saw that did not seem to be happy to be there). Very hurried service (compared to other experiences) but the service was somehow still lacking. Just not what we have come to expect from a Carnival steakhouse. The food was an even bigger disappointment. Appetizers were okay. I tried a couple of new ones so I have nothing to compare to. Wife loves the lobster bisque and she said that this trip the recipe was different and not nearly as good as previous trips. As for the steaks themselves... I had the bone in ribeye on NYE. I know ribeye steaks, and this one was of very poor quality. Tough. Tasteless. It was grilled medium rare as requested. That is about all I can say about it. I had the filet mignon on Friday evening. Filets are not supposed to be tough at all. Mine was. Tasted better than the ribeye, but not by a lot. Both steaks were sub-par compared to at least 20 other Carnival steakhouse experiences. And then there were the side dishes. For some reason, they think it is chic or neat or whatever to serve your side dishes in these little cast iron "bowls(?)" or carafes or whatever you want to call them. I would order two sides with each meal. Each time one side's taste was tainted by the oil they must use to store/season these little cast iron bowls. One night it was the mushrooms. The other night it was the mashed potatoes. Inedible. Which takes us back to the service. We were NEVER asked either evening if the food was okay. Enough on this. Desserts were on par. And then there was Nick. Nick the dealer at the craps table. When I gamble on the ship, I only play craps. I have a fairly good knowledge and understanding of the game - how it is played and how it pays out. Nick does not have these traits, yet gets paid to run the table. Nick is nasty to the people at the table. Nick doesn't watch the dice when rolled and sticks his hands out during a roll. Nick misses rolls while watching passengers walk by. Nick yelled at my wife for walking up to the table with a drink. Nick shorted multiple payouts. Luckily the players knew the proper payouts and worked with the boxman to correct the issue. Nick passed the dice to the wrong person as the stickman. Nick should not be working the craps table. Yes. Nick is his real name. No. I'm not ashamed or afraid to post it. Incompetence needs to be rooted out. Now for the good and great... We absolutely love sea days. We would book a 7 day All Sea Day cruise in a heartbeat. We pretty much do NOTHING. We do get up early (5am or so) to run and exercise. We grab a table out on Lido around 6:30am and eat a small breakfast and read and people watch. We find our "nest" for the day around 8am - either on the back of the boat or up on Serenity - and we read, drink, nibble, watch the people and the clouds go by, and nap now and then. Usually get up to walk around and go back to prepare for dinner around 4pm. That pretty much sums up our three sea days. Carnival knows how to do breakfast - no complaints. For the most part, Carnival knows how to do lunch - no complaints. We only bought our drinks from the Red Frog Rum Hut. Made friends with Cussy and a couple other bartenders. Drinks this trip seemed to be better and stronger than past cruises. Not sure if that is the recipe or the cash tips 🙂 Roatan - Do the Jolly Roger snorkel tour. Just do it. We had a fairly windy day in port, so rather than snorkel the near side of the island, we bused to the far side and snorkeled the reefs over there - much less wind. Beautiful. And we were in the water a LONG time. Easily and hour and a quarter plus. Lunch on the boat was better than most anything I had on the Dream. They poured the drinks like they had to get rid of all of the rum. Great crew. Great day. Belize - We did the Rendezvous Caye snorkel. The ride out to the island was pretty long - 70 minutes or so. It was against the wind so that didn't help. I did not enjoy the crew on the island as well as the Jolly Roger crew. The snorkeling was outstanding. It would be great if they would turn you loose to snorkel the entire time you are there rather than just do the loop with the group. There is a ton to see there and with the group, you are limited. The food was okay. No free drinks on this one. Cozumel - We love Cozumel. Have vacationed there. Have made friends there. Got off the boat before 7am. Went straight to town. Zermat bakery for a couple of pastries then to Coz Coffee Roasters for coffee and a talk with Tom the owner. Great place. Great guy. They can be busy. It's worth the wait. Since we had just been in Cozumel in July, we really didn't have a lot of shopping we wanted to do. We did stop at the Thirsty Cougar on the main drag to grab some hand made glassware that our children had asked for after bringing ours home in July. The kids at the Cougar are great. They may not remember our names, but they remember our faces. We always get a smile and a hug. Grabbed a cab back to the pier to look for a purse Pamela wanted at the two Rogers Boots locations out there as the location in town didn't have what she wanted. No dice. The purse she saw in July is no longer available. Back to the ship to put up a few things and grab towels and snorkel gear, then a cab out to Money Bar. Lunch and drinks. Beware the margaritas. They may be small, but they are mighty. Had shrimp ceviche, squid rings, and a plate of guac. The food was outstanding. Better than anything on the Dream. We never got in the water. Just read and watched the people and the boats go by. Just a beautiful day, but we weren't done. Cabbed back to the Cougar for a drink. I had them make me their version of a mudslide. It was a giant frozen rum/chocolate/peanut butter concoction. We sat right out on the street and the people walking by just stared at the size of the thing. It was good and it was strong. Sat and people watched for a while, and headed back to the ship around 4pm. This was a great day in Cozumel. The spa rooms on deck 11 and 12 give you access to a few areas in the spa that we had never used before - the thalassotherapy pool and the thermal suites. Wife loved them and used them daily. I liked the pool. It was nice to go sit after a workout. Getting old sucks and this helped make these old bones feel better. The New Years Eve festivities were beyond anything we had been told to expect. It was elegant night, but it is Carnival, so you see everything. I love that. We joined at least a thousand people down in and surrounding the Deck 3 Lobby Bar at 10:30pm for the balloon drop. That was a pretty neat thing. Then we moved up to the Lido deck. So did what appeared to be the entire ship. As the clock closed in on midnight, the deck got more and more crowded with dancers and revelers. By the time the countdown was on, there was barely room to move except around the edges of the deck. Carnival did this one right. It was a great night. I know it's a perk of being Platinum, but getting on and off the ship were so easy that it's not even funny. They cleared the ship for us to board right at 11am, and we were on board about 5 minutes later. Getting off was even better than our other Platinum experience. Better set up and process so there was not a mad rush for the door. This could all be because of the low number of Diamonds and Platinum cruisers. We were told there were 25 Diamonds and 241 Platinums on this sailing. And then there was the Captain. Captain Carlo Queriolo. Most outgoing personable captain we've had the pleasure to cruise with. His daily announcements were great. We had the chance to talk with him at the Diamond/Platinum party. Unlike some other captains I've watched, he took the time to talk with any that wanted a word. This was an overall great cruise. I can get past the problems with the food and with the casino dealer. We aren't a couple that cruise for the food. We cruise for the relaxation and for the chance to just get to spend quality time together. It was good enough that we are already booked to cruise NYE again in 2019.
  12. Sailing on the dream next month and I was wondering what the platinum logo gift might be. hkmom
  13. I read in another post that the Dream will be getting rid of the Tandoor in the "near future". Does anyone have any info on if and when this is actually supposed to happen? We're sailing in May, and don't want to miss it. Thanks! ~Cruisingal

    Carnival dream 7 day menu

    Does anyone have any recent menus from the 7 day dream going to Cozumel, Grand cayman, and Montego Bay? I’ve been trying to search for them but I’m not having much luck. Thanks in advance! Also, are all of the ships now on the American table/feast menus?

    Carnival Dream 1/6-1/13

    My girlfriend and I cruised on the Dream 1/6/19-1/13/19. I have cruise on Carnival 3 times before. This was my Girlfriends first Cruise. We are in our mid 20’s. Here are some of my thoughts: Embarkation: We stayed at the Hilton Riverside. So, we walked through the Riverwalk. The walk was quite short and not bad at all. When we arrived at the port it took about 10 minutes to check in our lounge. After that everything was extremely organized and went quickly. Room: We stayed in room 7222. It was great. We loved the location. It was clean and well maintained. Our Room Steward, George, was fantastic. He was very attentive and kind. We had a few problems with our neighbors (smoking marijuana and cigarettes on the balcony) and George was very empathetic and did his best to help us. We also appreciated that he kept all of our towel animals each night. It was nice to have all of our towel friends at the end of the cruise. Most room stewards replace the animals each night. While it’s a minor detail, we appreciated it. Food: Main Dining Room (Dinner): We ate in the main dining room every night except for one (Steakhouse reservation). We had the 6pm dining time. For the most part we enjoyed the food very much. Some of my favorite dishes were, the braised rabbit appetizer, country chicken soup appetizer, the curry shrimp entrée, the rosemary lamb shank, and the bitter and blanc desert. My girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed the braised rabbit, filet mignon and the amaretto cake. She disliked the Mahi Mahi and I wasn’t the biggest fan of the beef carpaccio (warm) or the soufflé (undercooked). Although the food was pretty good, the service was not up to the standard I expected. Jorge our main waiter was kind, yet very forgetful and had a difficult time understanding English. He forgot a few drinks or meals and one evening forgot to let us order desert at all. Multiple times we would ask for one thing (whiskey old fashion) and receive something else (whiskey and coke), even though we would always clarify if he had questions. The two assistant waiters, Tomislav and Henry were very nice and hardworking. The entire team seemed very overwhelmed. The service wasn’t what we expected but we still enjoyed the majority of our meals. Main Dining Room (Brunch): We ate at the seaday brunch twice. The food was pretty good, yet the service was extremely slow. Each dining experience took about 2 hours. I personally think this is to long for brunch. I would recommend the buffet if you are in a rush or have other plans. My girlfriends’ steak and eggs were slightly overcooked but tasted good. I enjoyed both meals I ordered. Guys Burgers: We both enjoyed these burgers and fries very much! We split a burger one day and each ordered our own the next day. The burgers were juicy and cheesy. The fries weren’t to salty and had just the right amount of crisp. We appreciated the toppings bars. I would recommend looking at both of the lines before joining a line. Everyday there was a line that was quite long, while the other was half the size. Blue Iguana Cantina: This was somewhat hit or miss for use. Embarkation day I ordered a shrimp burrito and it was fantastic. Later in the week I ordered a huevos rancheros and it was soggy and not flavorful at all. My girlfriend ordered a burrito with chicken one day for lunch and the chicken was burnt and over cooked. The last time I order from here I ordered a breakfast burrito. It was delicious! So, like I said, it’s hit or miss. I recommend giving it multiple try’s if you don’t like it the first time. Bonsai Sushi: We went here once for a late-night snack on the last night. We enjoyed it a whole lot and wish we went here sooner! The prices are extremely reasonable. We ordered a California roll, a shrimp tempura roll, tuna sashimi and the wagyu beef appetizer. Everything was delicious. We both highly recommend eating here at least once. It’s definitely worth the extra cost. Steakhouse: Unfortunately, we were unable to finish our meal here, because my girlfriend started feeling quite ill. We were able to have our appetizers and I had my entrée (GF was given hers in a to go box but never ate it). I had the smoked oysters and the tuna tartare for my appetizers. For my entrée I had the New York strip steak with the rapini and wasabi mash on the side. My girlfriend had the shrimp cocktail and the stuffed mushrooms. She ordered the Waygu but never ended up eating it. All of the food we ate were excellent. My steak was slightly overcooked. I asked for medium rare and received the steak cooked medium. I did not send it back since we were in a rush to get back in the room for my girlfriend. The steak was still extremely tasty. The service was good but not amazing. We look forward to giving the steak house another chance on another cruise. We were both bummed that we had to leave a little early, but we wanted to make sure my girlfriend would feel better for our first port the next day. Pizza: We both thought the pizza was pretty good but not great. I usually ordered the #5 (prosciutto) which I enjoyed. The pizza was cooked quickly, and I don’t believe we ever waited more than 5 minutes for pizza, even when the line was long. Mongolian: We ate here on the last seaday. We really liked the food, but we did wait a very long time in line. I would recommend coming here on a port day when it is less crowded. Deli: We split a Cuban sandwich here once. My girlfriend enjoyed it, while I thought it was a little soggy and not great. I also enjoyed the chocolate sea salt cookies they give out. That’s it for tonight. I’ll add my thoughts on the bars, entertainment, activities and more tomorrow. I’ll also be happy to answer any questions anyone has about the dream.
  19. Just saw on a social network page that the Tandoor Grill is being transformed into a Seafood Shack on the Dream. I never heard that this was even planned, can anyone verify this? For those who have tried it, is it good, worth the cost? We sail on the Dream November 25.

    CCL Dream railing

    Can any of you, who have been on the Dream, verify whether the railing on deck 9, front of ship, is low enough for someone to sit on and still touch the deck with his feet?
  21. Leaving soon on a cruise on Dream and wondering how the WiFi is. Can you use it in your room? Is it worth the price? Thanks. B
  22. A quick question for anyone who has sailed on the Dream recently - Has Tandoor been replaced by the Seafood Shack?
  23. Hello, I want to book a spa cabin on the Dream and I saw several old post(before 2012) saying that cabin 12201 has 2 bathrooms. Any recent cruisers can confirm this room still has the 2 bathrooms? The carnival deck plan does not show this.
  24. Carnival Dream lost a life boat while underway it appears it broke from the davit holders. Really calls into question the inspections of these safety systems on the ships. Reports are no one hurt and the life boat will not be recovered by the ship..... Free lifeboat for anyone who can claim her. Have seen to news reports links here: https://maritimebulletin.net/2018/12/31/cruise-ship-carnival-dream-lost-lifeboat-while-under-way/ https://www.cruiselawnews.com/2018/12/articles/rescue/carnival-dream-loses-lifeboat/
  25. Was that room a good or bad choice? It has a king bed and I really wanted that. Been booked a while now so probably no changing it
