Carnival to Feature Acrobats on New 130,000-Ton Dream
Published on: May 28, 2009

Carnival Cruise Lines is planning a new entertainment program for its newest
and largest "Fun Ship," the 130,000-ton Carnival Dream. In addition to three
production revues, Carnival Dream will offer solo singers, comedians, live
bands and "Fun Force," an acrobatic team that will perform throughout the
ship. "The increased size of the Carnival Dream provides us with an
expansive canvas to create some truly unique and innovative entertainment
options that are sure to leave audiences amazed," said Roger Blum, Carnival'
s vice president of cruise programming. The first production show, titled
"Dancin' in the Street," combines a gritty, urban feel with special effects
such as neon lighting and video projection technology. The show features
break-dancing numbers, acrobatic Chinese pole routines and a trampoline
segment. The second show, "Get Ready," takes a musical look at various
professions through the Motown era, R&B hits and elaborate production
numbers. The third show, "Xtreme Country," salutes country and western
music.


Carnival Dream will offer other entertainment venues. The new Ocean Plaza
will feature a different entertainment options throughout the day and night.
The ship will also feature comedy revues and Seaside Theatre, a massive LED
screen on Lido Deck that will display movies, concerts, sporting events and
other programming. Other options include solo singers along the Dream Street
promenade, a dedicated karaoke lounge, Sam's piano bar, steel drum and
Calypso bands on Lido Deck and live bands playing everything from rock to
country to disco.
Carnival Dream is slated to debut Sept. 21 with the first of three 12-day
"Grand Mediterranean" cruises operating round-trip from Rome, followed by a
16-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Rome to New York Oct. 27 to Nov. 12.
From New York, Carnival Dream will operate two eight-day Bahamas/Florida
cruises departing Nov. 15 and Nov. 23, and then reposition to Port Canaveral
for a one-time nine-day Caribbean cruise departing Dec. 3. Carnival Dream
will then launch year-round seven-day service from Port Canaveral on Dec. 12
offering weeklong voyages to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.

I can hardly wait to see these productions!

I am also very curious to see how the Ocean Plaza concept is going to work.

I'm going out on the 2 day American Inaugural cruise out of NYC on 13 Nov. - I'm hoping that the ship will have all the entertainment venues in operation for the showcase cruise - goin' to try one of those new Carnival Cove Balconies. Really lookin' forward to it!

Billy, please take some pictures. Pictures of interest would be..hint hint.. Cove Balcony, Ocean Plaza, Thalassotherapy Pool, and cantilevered Whirlpools. And of course a review would be extra nice. I remember you booking the Dream within minutes of the reservations opening.

Dwayne - Thank You for the linkup on the Dream. Now I feel really sad that you are unable to make that Dream cruise!!!

Here is another video of the sea trials. That helicopter buzzing around almost looks like a gnat beside her. I love the music in this one even though I don't understand a word of it.

Cas, After her initial sailings she will be home ported in Port Canaveral taking the Glory's place. The itineraries will rotate with Eastern Caribbean and Exotic Western Caribbean.

The Eastern will include Nassau, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. The Western will be Cozumel, Belize, Costa Maya, and Roatan.

However she will be on a special voyage and will stop in San Juan December 9th from 7AM - 3PM. If you are off you should try to go see her, if not a student field trip comes to mind.
