Carnival DreamCarnival has a track record for stellar cruise ships, but its largest vessel – the Carnival Dream – might just take the cake. Weighing in at a massive 130,000 tons, this luxury cruise is capable of carrying an astounding 3,646 passengers. More than any other Carnival ship out there.

Constructed in 2009, Dream is the most modern, high-end ship in the fleet when compared to its older siblings. That is saying something. Considering even the oldest Carnival cruise ships are constantly updated and offer the highest-ends in entertainment today. Dream takes the positives from its predecessors and innovates the cruise model to give a new, fresh experience on the sea.


In terms of the indoor-outdoor entertainment, the Lanai is out of this world. Stretching from one end of the ship to the other. This entertainment space has a pair of gigantic ocean-view hot tubs, a cafe, and a bar. At night, the Lanai is host to a Carnival first: 15-minute laser shows that feature classic rock music from Pink Floyd, to Van Halen, to Boston.


If you are over 21 and in a partying mood, Decks 4 and 5 are made for parties. Outfit with several bars, these decks make bar hopping on the ocean as enjoyable as possible. But if a boozy evening is not your cup, the ship three-story lounge, two high-end restaurants, sushi bar, steakhouse, and two-story buffet might be more your speed.

The cabins are, as usual on Carnival cruises, roomy and comfortable. At 185 square feet, each cabin sports a small sitting space and mini-bar.

With prices ranging from $600 to $2,000, Dream is one of the best ways to book a cruise. Just be sure to snag a seat before they are all gone!
