For my family, 50% of our vacation is about food. I have actually planned whole vacations around dining. For us, splurging on prime cuts of meat and decadent desserts is part of the fun, and another reason why we love cruising.
From the Crimson Dining Room to The Gathering Lido Buffet and the AMAZING Chef's Art Steakhouse, we enjoyed every meal on our recent cruise aboard the Carnival Dream. Instead of going on about how good the food was, I thought I would just show you!
Here's 29 pics of the best eats on the Carnival Dream:
