About Carnival Dream
The Ship. Built in 2009 and refurbished in 2012, the Carnival Dream gives its name to the Dream class of Carnival ships. Weighing approximately 130,000 tons and accommodating about 3,700 passengers, this class of ships is the newest and largest in the Carnival fleet. The Carnival Dream offers a vast array of cabin types and categories to fit the needs of families of various sizes, including "quint" cabins that sleep five.
Dining. Dining options are centered around two large, elegant main dining rooms serving breakfast, lunch, dinner; and Lido Deck restaurants serving buffets, Mongolian-style barbecue, Indian cuisine, 24-hour pizza, as well as lighter fare. The Chef's Art Supper Club provides an upscale dining experience for an extra charge, but is reputed to be well worth it. 24-hour room service is also provided at no charge. The RedFrog Rum Bar offers a bar menu for a nominal fee, and a sushi bar is usually available 5-8 each evening (though times can vary).
Daytime Activities. Water activities aboard the Carnival Dream include three swimming pools including one with a retractable dome for rainy days, plus a kids pool with three waterslides (including one slide that twists and turns for more than 300 feet!). The adults-only Serenity deck offers a relaxing respite. Duty-free shopping is available onboard, as are other entertaining activities and get-togethers throughout the day. Rather then an Internet cafe, computer stations are scattered throughout the ship. Ship-wide WI-FI is also available.
Spa and Fitness. The full-service onboard spa and salon provides a variety of relaxing treatments and therapies. The spa's signature treatment is the Bamboo Massage, where warm bamboo shoots of various sizes that have been soaked in essential oil are used to roll and massage away tension. An outdoor sport court is supplemented by a fully-equipped gym that offers weight and cardio equipment as well as fitness classes. In addition to a jogging track, the Lanai deck allows runners to completely circle the ship at 2.5 laps to the mile.
Nighttime Entertainment. Nightlife abounds in more than twenty onboard bars and lounges featuring different styles of live music, often including everything from rock to jazz to blues, to an old-fashioned sing-along piano bar and karaoke to a disco pumping out dance music into the wee hours. The indoor-outdoor dance club is not to be missed. The Punchline is a George Lopez-inspired comedy club that features late-night shows as well as family-friendly comedy brunches. The grand, multi-tiered theater presents Broadway-style revues featuring the ship's talented cast of singers and dancers, and a large casino offers a variety of games when the ship is at sea. Poker games and tournaments are also staged throughout each voyage. Passengers can also watch movies under the stars on the 270-square-foot LED screen overlooking the main pool area.
Kids. The Carnival Dream also offers Camp Carnival, Carnival's renowned kid's program, which keeps kids from 2-11 engaged in play activities as well as movies and pizza parties during the day and even into the evening (for a small fee) to give parents some time alone). Carnivals teen programs provide a fun and safe environment for teenagers to meet other kids their own age for video game tournaments, parties and other activities. A large onboard arcade is also available separate from the kids club areas, and a mini-golf course on the sports deck adds to the fun.
