Dress Code

What Should I Pack?
The first thing to remember is that you're on vacation and you are onboard Carnival Cruises’ ‘Fun Ships’ to have a good time. Secondly, remember to travel light. Keeping these two pieces of advice in mind are very important for packing.

Casual attire and resort wear is typically appropriate attire onboard and in-port. Shorts, slacks, sundresses, blouses, sandals, etc., are appropriate for women, and clothing for men is just as casual. Travelers might also want to consider bringing along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings and inexpensive rain gear in case of a sudden shower. While restaurants typically have casual dress code, there are also instances where you may visit a specialty restaurant or attend a special Captain’s Cocktail Party and Gala Farewell Dinner that requires business casual or formal attire. For days in port where you will be participating in various shore excursions, you should dress accordingly to the dress codes of the sites you are visiting, as well as bring a pair of sneakers for strenuous walking.

Formal Wear: Men: suit and tie, sport coat, tie and slacks; Women: evening dresses, cocktail dresses; pantsuits.

Casual Resort Wear: Men: sport shorts, slacks; Women: dresses, skirts, shorts, Capri pants.

*Please Note: Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and bathing attire are not permitted in the Dining Room during dinner.

Fitness / Recreation

Carnival Dream allows guests to pursue rejuvenation and health while onboard through the ship’s fitness center. Aerobics, Pilates, spinning, and yoga are a sampling of what energetic passengers are able to enjoy in addition to weights, a jogging track, and a wide variety of exercise equipment. Through huge windows, guests of the fitness center have a panoramic view of the ocean as they focus on mind and body during their work-out regimen.


Carnival Dream is a ‘Fun Ship’ in every sense of the phrase. During the day, laughter and music fill the air as guests enjoy live calypso bands and tropical drinks by the pool, entertaining rounds of putt-putt golf with the kids, exhilarating water slides, energizing basketball games, and much more. Inside the ship, lounges, theaters, shops, and more invite guests to spend the day exploring all of the different possibilities. At night, the fun onboard Carnival Dream extends until the early morning, with movies by the pool, fabulous night spots, comedy and theatrical shows, and a casino that is never short on surprises.


Guests will discover dream-like pampering and self-indulgence while taking advantage of Carnival Dream’s amazing spa facilities. From exhilarating massages to cleansing masks and therapies, the ‘Cloud 9 Spa’ is the largest in the Fun Ship fleet and will introduce guests to a blissful state of relaxation and vitalization. Men and women inside the ‘Cloud 9 Spa’ are privileged to tailored services as experienced professionals administer loofah treatments, facials, water therapies, body wraps, and more.


Inside Carnival Dream’s atrium, guests will find hours of enjoyment perusing the various shops and extensive onboard library. From duty-free locations to art displays, each guest has the opportunity to find a special souvenir, the perfect gift, or simply to expand their wardrobe with the newest designer attire and accessories.


Onboard Carnival Dream, the dining venues are inviting, the menus elaborate, and the cuisine is mouthwatering. From breakfast at the start of each day, through lunch, dinner, and drinks before turning in, the restaurants available on Carnival Dream offer great selections to satisfy your hunger and plenty of extras to tantalize your senses. The 24-hour Lido Buffet is perfect for whenever the appetite awakens, and among its array of options and extensive children’s menu, lobster is offered on each sailing. The Supper Club presents an intimate, reservations-only environment where expertly prepared plates, elegant wines, and chic styling are the main course. At any time during a cruise onboard Carnival Dream, guests can enjoy a snack or full meal from the comfort of their cabins through Carnival’s 24-hour room service.


For excitement, fun, and an unforgettable time with friends, guests onboard Carnival Dream are able to try their hand at blackjack, roulette, slot machines, and more inside the ship’s casino. From games of chance to contests of skill, the casino offers something for every guest.


Kids are the focus of several programs and services that are onboard Carnival Dream, and Carnival offers professional child-care staff to assist with each just-for-kids event, venue, or program. Camp Carnival is open to children ages 2 through 11 and includes a wide range of fun activities for young cruisers. Circle “C” is where 12 through 14-year-olds will have fun and make new friends while participating in games, parties, and other supervised activities that are created specifically for their age group. Carnival’s CLUB 02 is a popular place for 15 through 17-year-olds, and blends friends, music, entertainment, sports, and style for an unforgettable teen-themed cruising experience.
