Carnival Online Check-In Process

YouTube Poster
Bill gives you all the detail on the Carnival online check-in process for his December 2021 sailing on the Carnival Breeze.

I always check in for my cruise as quickly as possible. Even if that check-in happens week before my cruise, it makes me feel like the vacation has started. Traditionally, that has happened many weeks before the cruise actually sailed. Given all of the post-COVID changes, however, Carnival online check-in now happens 14 days before the cruise. There are a couple of key changes since the “before times”– the time before COVID upended our travelling worlds.

Carnival Dream Free Lunch options

The Main Dining Room (MDR) is one of the best Carnival Dream free lunch options, and they offer a brunch menu.

I wrote before that I was not impressed with the breakfast buffet on the Carnival Dream (text link). Truth be told, I was not particularly impressed with the buffet at any time of day, and I generally preferred the buffet on the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas (opens new tab to a Galveston Cruise Reviews video). However, vacation involves a series of tradeoffs. While I did not enjoy the buffet, on balance the Carnival Dream free lunch options were great. Carnival just sets things up differently. Where Royal had a huge buffet and a couple of other free options, Carnival provided more free options in smaller restaurant spaces.

Carnival Dream Breakfast Buffet

It has been a looooonnnnnggggg time since we have been able to post about cruises. I have another one scheduled in December on the Carnival Breeze. I cannot tell you how excited I am. Getting ready for that cruise, however, made me find some old videos from the Before Times. You know, before COVID took over the world. One of the videos I found was of the Carnival Dream Breakfast Buffet and Blue Iguana. The upshot? Carnival’s buffet wasn’t great. What was amazing was the other free food options they had– things like the Blue Iguana.
