We just returned from a fabulous trip aboard the 
Carnival Dream. 

We caught a lot of slack about going on a cruise after the recent media blasting but our neighbors recently returned and loved it so we decided to give it a shot despite the media blasts. 

It was great, just for the record. No issues at all. I will agree with Dee that there are certainly some interesting people aboard the ship as well but other than those few characters we encountered it was superb. 

We had a balcony room that was right on the water. 

I could not have been more pleased with the room. 

I think a balcony room is the only way to go when cruising. 

We set sail about 4 pm last Saturday.

The ship was beautiful. The decor was a little loud and not like the tropical hotels we usually stay at in the Caribbean but it suited the ship and atmosphere.

Our first night at sea was wonderful. Neither of us got sea sick at all. We had a delicious dinner and made our way to the casino. 

I won't lie, we spent a LOT of time in the Casino.

Check back later this week to see if it paid off!


  1. My fiance [boyfriend at the time] and I went on a Carnival cruise in November and had a great time. It was a wonderful time away and we enjoyed the atmosphere, but our next cruise will definelty be on different cruise line. We want a lil more glam and less 'generic'.

    I'm glad y'all took the trip and enjoyed it. How amazing was no internet?!!?

    1. I agree. We are thinking Celebrity! What have you heard about Royal Caribbean?

  2. So fun! I feel like there are major deals to be found right now with cruising!! We didnt have a balcony when we went on Carnival Glory and i wish we did. Was your ship redone? Cant wait to hear more.

    1. The ship was only about a year old so it was not redone. Maybe two years. I saw your cruise post prior. Hey, was that a black romper you had on in your Mexico pics (last night I think?) Loved it.

  3. I've never been a cruise but everyone swears they are great and a good way to see a bunch of islands. It's good to hear you had a good experience after all the problems we see in the media all the time

  4. Never take a cruise without a balcony room! Can't wait to talk to you in person about it! ;)

  5. Looks like so much fun! I would love to go on a tropical vacay!
    I am going on an Alaska cruise next month! My first cruise ever!
