Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Carnival Dream sets the bar for fun in the Carnival fleet. With a huge range of casual and formal restaurants, lively and relaxing bars, and entertainment venues for all ages; Carnival Dream creates an unforgettable holiday before you even step on shore. Speed down water slides, relax by the pool, indulge in a spa treatment, or watch a blockbuster on the cinema screen at the upper deck. Enjoy peace and relaxation at Serenity Adult-Only Retreat while Carnival hosts keep kids entertained with a variety of club games and activities. Take the family to WaterWorks theme park, or head to RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar for a lively atmosphere, frozen cocktails, draft beers, and Caribbean creations. For dinner, sample cuisines from across the world in the many on-board cafes and restaurants — including Asian, Mexican and Indian — before seeing professional comedy acts and live shows in the evening. Carnival Dream is the ideal place to enjoy family fun between each cruise port.

Food
There's a wide range of dining venues and international cuisines available on Carnival Dream. Seaday Brunch offers favourites including French toast, cooked-to-order eggs and huevos rancheros.
