My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Carnival Dream Day 2 At Sea


I went to the Lido Deck (10) and played on my computer while Don still slept. Around 7am, I got an omelet made to order and finally by 7:30, I woke Don up. At 9am, we went to arts and crafts where we made a luggage tag with needlepoint. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoy the arts and crafts. At 10am, we went to the talk by the Shopping guide. Then at 11, we shared a pastrami sandwich from the deli because the other food stations weren’t open until noon. Then it was time to walk around the track and burn some calories. At noon we went to a Spanish language class which I also thought was an excellent idea. We had never seen this on the other ships but since we would be going into Spanish speaking ports, it was a great way to help us with basic phrases.

After that, we went to eat lunch at the Mongolian Wok. These lines are always long because you choose your ingredients and put them in a bowl before you get up to the cook. He then cooks it right in front of you. I wish they would handle this in the same way they do the pasta bar where you choose the ingredients on paper and then they cook it for you and deliver it to your table. This would get rid of the long lines.

Since we are platinum members, we got a free entry into the slot tournament but we didn’t even get a high enough score to place on the board. I always enjoy them anyway. After the tournament it was time to get ready for dinner because first we had the Captain’s celebration to meet the Captain (Carlo Queirolo) and his staff. I also met the hotel director, Donato Becce, who was very gracious. It was also our first formal night and I love getting dressed up.

Dinner was wonderful! I ended up getting the lobster and the prime rib. For dessert we had cherries jubilee which I also love. After dinner we went to the main show which was called Get Ready. The shows are always awesome but this was a new one and I really enjoyed it. The costumes, the singers, the songs, and the sets were absolutely beautiful! I don’t think any other cruise line can be as good as Carnival when it comes to the shows. These are top notch shows and exceptionally done!

After the main show , we went to the comedy show. We saw the same comedian that we saw on the Glory, Michael Macy but he was still good. I like how this show was managed where first come first serve on the seating rather than tickets. The room was packed and it was standing room only.

It was a wonderful day on the Dream!

The height requirement for the slide was 42 inches. Hope this helps.

Hello there Pat. I am going on this ship this Saturday. I see you are on it now. My brother's friend's Grandparents are on there now too and they said the cruise ship lost power. Is this true?
