CRUISE LIFE: CLUE: Murder Mystery on Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: CLUE: Murder Mystery on Carnival Dream

Having seen the press release when Carnival first released Clue: Murder Mystery on their ships, I was extremely excited to see this in person and play along! We were already in the theater as we wanted to see both shows that night and we held on to our front row seats. We were given a folder with the details of how the game is played and who the suspects are. Your job as a detective is to figure out where…

CRUISE LIFE: Relaxing Poolside & Fantastic Comedy/Magic Show on Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Relaxing Poolside & Fantastic Comedy/Magic Show on Carnival Dream

Sometimes you need to just sit back and relax… After an early rise and a full day in port in Cozumel this is exactly what we needed. What better way to relax than to take a shower to get all of the sand off of you – that sand sure does get in places it shouldn’t be in – grab a bite eat and sit in the shade by the pool and feel the cool Caribbean breeze blowing on your face. It…

CRUISE LIFE: Arriving in Cozumel – Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Arriving in Cozumel – Carnival Dream

There is something very special about waking up early in the morning to walk outside on the top deck of a cruise ship and watch the sunrise! I will admit this was the first time I have ever done it as I am not a morning person. But on this morning Jason woke me up so we could experience this together. The Lido deck was quiet and peaceful as so many were still asleep.  We really soaked up the moment…

CRUISE LIFE: Motor City Show & Motown Showdown – Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Motor City Show & Motown Showdown – Carnival Dream

Who’s ready for a good show? One of my favorite things to do on a cruise, other than eating, is to watch the great shows in the theater!  Tonight is the Motor City show which features music from Motown!  The pre-show can be a ton of fun too!  The four male performers were dressed like bellhops and were walking around the theater interacting with the passengers and making everyone laugh.  Then they picked a few guys from the audience and…

CRUISE LIFE: Formal Night on the Carnival Dream

It’s time for a formal night!   Or as it is now called… Cruise Elegant Night.  Believe it or night, our kids love to get dressed up on the ship… not at home but on the ship, it is something special!  Once we are all dressed up we head down to Promenade to see what all is going on…  This is the area of the ship that comes alive at night.  During the day most people are on Lido deck…

CRUISE LIFE: Guy’s Pig & Anchor and Tea Time – Carnival Dream

Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que We made our way down to deck 5 for lunch at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse.  You can smell this place before you can see it!  It has a wonderful smoky BBQ smell that the sea breeze picks up and carries around this area of the ship.  It was early so the line wasn’t very long and we had our food in no time.  They have the service set up where you choose your…

CRUISE LIFE: Sea Day Brunch & Pool Time – Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Sea Day Brunch & Pool Time – Carnival Dream

Sea Day Brunch is Delicious! We start our first full day at sea with none other than Sea Day Brunch.  We really enjoy going into the main dining room for a laid-back breakfast where you order from the menu instead of grabbing something off the buffet… and not to mention it’s so good!  What’s so funny is that we were sitting getting ready to order breakfast and were talking about what to have for lunch, you can see where our…

CRUISE LIFE: Alchemy Bar & Our First Dinner – Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Alchemy Bar & Our First Dinner – Carnival Dream

Once the rain started when headed inside to explore the ship and headed to the lobby area.  It was Easter Sunday and we discovered they had a candy hunt all over the ship.  I spoke to one employee manning a station who explained how it worked… They had random stations set up all over this ship with an employee with a big bucket of candy.  Kids of any age could get a small bag and go around and collect as…

CRUISE LIFE: Boarding the Ship & Setting Sail – Carnival Dream

After much anticipation and waiting…  We finally arrive at the port and board the Carnival Dream!  I must say this was the quickest we have ever gotten through check-in and security to board a ship, literally the line never stopped moving, it was so fast!  Thank you New Orleans Port!!!   We are finally on board! Once on board we headed to deck 8 to drop our bags off in our cabins. But unfortunately, the doors were closed and we…
