Carnival Dream Day 1

We just got back from our 7 night cruise on the Carnival Dream with another couple we're close to from back in CT. It stopped in Cozumel Mexico, Roatan Honduras, Belize City Belize, and Costa Maya Mexico. We had an AMAZING time! The Carnival Dream is their 2nd newest ship as the Magic is their newest and the Breeze will be released sometime next year. It's so big that when we docked next to the Oasis of the Seas in Cozumel it wasn't dwarfed by it like most other ships are. Deck 5 was one of our favorite spots with the hot tubs that hang over with a great view of the water and it was completely open air without another deck directly over it. The whole week was amazing from spending time with our friends we don't see that much anymore, to the ports of call, fun excursions, great food, awesome service from the cruise employees, and just overall much needed relaxation. It was a smooth trip up until the last night when the boat was rocking ridiculously from the after affects of Hurricane Irene as we came back up the coast of Florida to dock in Port Canaveral. But I'll go more into detail about that in the post for our last day on the ship.

I know some people think of Carnival as the discount cruiseline, and I've been on Royal Caribbean, but when they say that Carnival cruise line have the "Fun Ships" they mean it. There's always something going on, the waiters sing and dance for you every night at dinner, the cruise directors are awesome and always blending in with the passengers and having a ton of fun. I still want to check out Celebrity, but right now I'd have to admit that Carnival is my favorite cruise line.
