Carnival Press Release:

New 130,000-ton Carnival Dream to be Based at Port Canaveral

04/23/2008

MIAMI (April 23, 2008) – Carnival Cruise Lines has announced that the new 130,000-ton Carnival Dream – the largest “Fun Ship” ever constructed – will be based at Port Canaveral, Fla., beginning in fall 2009. Details on the ship’s itinerary will be provided at a later date.


Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, the 3,652-passenger Carnival Dream is the first in a new class of ship for the line with a unique interior design, sleek hull and distinctive profile, along with a host of innovative facilities and features which will be released in the coming months.


The deployment of the Carnival Dream to Port Canaveral continues the line’s 18-year relationship with the Canaveral Port Authority, the longest tenure of any cruise line there.


In addition to the Carnival Dream, the line has two other “Fun Ships” scheduled to enter service – the 113,300-ton Carnival Splendor, set to debut in Europe July 2, 2008, and the 130,000-ton Carnival Magic, slated for delivery in June 2011.


Carnival is the largest and most popular cruise line in the world, with 22 “Fun Ships” operating three- to 18-day voyages to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Canada, New England, Europe and South America.


For additional information on the “Fun Ship” vacation experience, contact any travel agent, call 1-800-CARNIVAL or visit carnival.com.

Not yet, I sure hope they are different than the current Glory offerings. I am going to keep a close eye out for any news about the itineraries. Usually when they announce the itineraries and start accepting bookings for new ships, they go fast. And then add this will be a new class of ship.

Hello everybody,

I have received the following "Carnival Dream" rendering from Carnival Cruise Lines:



The picture confirms this is a completely new design. Notice the promenade being located above the lifeboats, and it appears that there is one deck of "hull balconies" (like those found on "QM2") below the lifeboats.

Very interesting layout. My initial thoughts are that it is a good design.

Thanks, Great Picture. What is a hull balcony?

Think of the cat. 12 cabins on the Fantasy class.

CruiseDad,

balconies located inside the hull rather than in the superstructure.

Dave has given another good example for them, and here's a "QM2" photo showing "hull balconies" (below the promenade deck / tender) and balconies in the ship's superstructure above.

Learned something new, never heard that term before. I've always used and heard the term sheltered balconies for those.

Cheers, Neil
