The Carnival Dream Cruise Ship Balcony Room is one of the best deals you can make if you book it in advance. This is the perfect room for two people even though it can sleep up to 5 people. If you and your loved one are going on a cruise, this is the perfect room to choose.

The views are fantastic, there is lots of light in the room and the bathroom is fantastic. There is also a television set where you can catch some movies or watch the news.

Other rooms on the Cruise

The other rooms on the Carnival Dream Cruise Ship are the Ocean Suite, Grand Suite, Premium Vista Balcony, Junior Suite, Aft View Balcony and Interior.

Every room is nice if you ask us. Some people like to travel in style so they are booking the Suite or as we mentioned above it’s the deluxe room. It has all the amenities that can satisfy even the pickiest of customers. A mini fridge, VIP check-in, a deluxe bathroom with whirlpool tub and you have a priority embarkation and debarkation included. This is for those who love to travel in style.

The Ocean Room is for those who don’t want a balcony but still want the view of the sea. It’s a perfect room for couples that want some peace and quiet and are not worried that they don’t have a balcony on board. It’s a roomy room that has everything you need.

And the final room that’s the Interior room is for those people that are actually not picky because it does not have a window or a balcony. It’s a cozy room that offers a full bathroom and you can choose from a double bed or two separate beds. This room is a cozy place even though it doesn’t include windows or a balcony.


There are loads of restaurants to choose from on the Carnival Dream. From Mexican food to Burger joints you can dine whatever you want.

And for dinner, we would recommend the Dining Room where you can eat a three-course meal and eat in a fancy restaurant.

Which cabins to avoid

We don’t want to tell you this but there are some cabins to avoid at the Carnival Dream Cruise Ship at all cost. Even if you are a night owl.

The cabins that are under or above one of the clubs at the cruise are the worst ones. Because every night there is a party in the clubs and if you want some peace and quiet we won’t recommend you these cabins.

Also if you want to enjoy your cruise don’t book the Interior cabins because it can feel a bit claustrophobic without windows. If you don’t have this problem then it’s nothing special, but if you can spend some extra money don’t book these rooms.


Going on a cruise is a life-changing experience. From visiting many places in a couple of weeks to traveling on the sea and meeting a lot of like-minded people like you. Even if you are a newlywed couple or a family you are going to have a lot of fun on this cruise.
