The Carnival Dream is the sister ship to the Carnival Magic, and she made her maiden voyage in September of 2009. Since then, this ship has been entertaining families and partiers around the world as she travels the seas. Being one of the newer ships in Carnival’s line, the ship is loaded with all kinds of cool amenities. This is one of the reasons that it is one of the best-reviewed cruise ships on the waters today.
As you probably already know, Carnival is the cruise line for people who like to cut loose. Therefore, you can expect to find plenty of places to get your party on aboard the Carnival Dream. (If you want to know where the hottest place is on board, you’ll want to stay tuned for #22.) Of course, you’ve got to find some time to unwind as well, and thankfully the ship offers plenty of ways and places to relax.
So, come check out the Carnival Dream. You’re sure to find plenty of things that might pique your interest about this amazing ship. Be sure to stay tuned all the way to the end too, because there are more than a couple of surprises in store!
