My "Dream" Double Birthday Cruise September 22-29, 2012


Recommended Posts

Hey All, just off the Carnival Dream today. This was the first cruise fresh off of drydock for the Dream.

We went on this cruise to celebrate my husband's birthday (Sept.22nd) and mine (Sept. 23rd).

Who Joined Me?: DH, DM(Mom), and myself.

Location: DH and I had the cove (7C) room 2349. Excellent location..no noise loved loved the location. DM had room 2351 (inside) which was across the hall

Itinerary: Eastern Caribbean; Nassau, St. Thomas, and St.Marten

Things We Did out of the ordinary? We chartered a boat to go deep sea fishing in St.Thomas:D

Hopefully, i can get this review up and running with details and pictures as soon as i can figure out how to post pics. Why do i wait to learn how to post pics?:p:D

For pictures, the easiest way is to open an account on Photobucket and upload your pictures there. Then, when you want to include a picture into your post you type in what ever text that you want, then add a blank line and then go to photo bucket and put your mouse over the picture in your album and a set of links will pop up. Click on the link labeled IMG Code and it will be copied. Then come back here to your post and paste the link, add another blank line, and either add another picture or type some more.


You can also compose your post including the picture links in Word and then cut and paste the whole thing here.

okay thanks for the photo review tips..i'm going to upload the pics tomorrow...hubby and i took over 1700!:eek: So bare with me. I promise to finish this review this week.


Also if anyone have any questions shoot.

The Dream got the "Taste Bar", "Red Rum Frog" Bar, "Blue Iguana Bar", and "Cherry on Top". The "Taste Bar" is located next to the coffe shop. It's on deck 5 mid ship. The new bars are located on the Lido deck by the pool.

And the "Cherry on Top" is located on deck 5 right outside the casino and smack dab in between the Fun Shops.


Oh yeah i slept with a celebrity!;)

Hope you had a great cruise and can't wait to read your review!:)


Btw, How was the food? Food porn pictures would be great if you have them!:D


Already packed. Of course out of 1700 pics not one..nada was of the food. We did eat ALL of it if that's any indication of how the food was. It didn't stay long enough on the plate.:p:D

Look forward to your review. The Dream is a beautiful ship but its been a couple years since we sailed her. With the dry dock and upgrades it must be amazing. I'm sure there may have been a couple minor glitches from dry dock but they certainly shouldn't have dampened the fun on the Dream. I'm sure you got pics of the new "stuff". Can't wait to see them.

Hope you had a great Birthday! This was for my husband's and my 17th Anniversary. We had a few problems, but they worked out in the end. In all the cruises we have been on, this was the first one we had problems on. So I guess we have been lucky! Can't wait to see what you did in the ports! I always like to know so when I go back I want to do something different.

George and I enjoyed meeting you and we had a great time at the party celebrating our 35th anniversary:) By the way, our pic together(of you and me) turned out pretty good.


We sure had beautiful weather, didn't we? I am looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Glad you enjoyed your bday cruise.

I think i'm going to do the review and then try to add the pictures later. Photoshop and my computer are having issues...I don't want to leave everyone hanging so i'll do a day-by-day review and try to post pics as i can. DISCLAIMER: Most of the pics are unedited and i'm no photographer! LOL
