Continued from part one.

The Carnival Dream completed a dry dock upgrade a few weeks before our cruise. Major details about that upgrade are in this previous article.

Two of the upgrades are the Red Frog Rum bar and the Blue Iguana Tequila bar, both of which were added on the Lido deck. These bars have special drinks to complement the theme and have more table or counter space than the typical Lido deck bar.

The water slides were also upgraded. One of them is a drainpipe slide. At the end of the slide you are dumped into a funnel in which you swirl around until you drop out the bottom and into a pool.

Carnival has the largest regular cabins at sea. Our cabin was a balcony cabin on the Spa deck. On the Carnival Dream, these cabins give you special access to the Spa including unlimited use of the thalassotherapy pool, heated stone beds, and steam rooms. Those with Spa cabins also have priority for reservations for Spa services such as massages

The food that was served all week was excellent, whether in the main dining room or any of the venues available on the Lido deck. If you go hungry on a cruise, it is your own fault.

Starting with part three of this review, we will look at the ports visited on this trip - St. Thomas, USVI; Nassau, The Bahamas; and St. Maarten.

Note: All popup pictures were taken by Stephen Mencik during this sailing.
