Okay,
While Tom is on a cruise, I will assume the responsibility of keeping you informed as I receive press releases that you might find of interest. This one is from Carnival and announces the art collection that will be featured on the Carnival Liberty:

NEW CARNIVAL LIBERTY TO FEATURE MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR ART COLLECTION

110,000-Ton SuperLiner Set To Debut Line’s First-Ever Med Cruises July
20, 2005

MIAMI (April 26, 2005) – For the new 110,000-ton Carnival
Liberty – set to launch Carnival’s first-ever Mediterranean cruise
program July 20, 2005 – the line has commissioned a group of talented
artists to enhance the vessel’s striking interiors, which celebrate
great artisans and their works.

Israeli artist Calman Shemi took the Carnival Liberty’s design
theme to heart and created a series of large, colorful murals that
feature depictions of iron workers, glass blowers, jewelry makers, and
sculptors practicing their crafts. The massive aluminum panels, which
measure an impressive six feet high by nine feet wide, are positioned
within the ship’s center stairways. Shemi also created 45 different
motifs that were reproduced to adorn each of the Carnival Liberty’s
1,479 staterooms.

In her first commission from Carnival, California painter
Marian Westall also pays homage to the artisan theme with a series of
large canvases for the aft stairways. The brightly colored paintings
depict pottery and ornate grillwork set against a variety of dramatic
settings, including the desert, sunsets, and a lake.

Virginia Ferrara’s large, tropical-themed pieces, which adorn
Carnival Liberty’s stair landings, are inspired by the surroundings of
her adopted South Florida home. Measuring up to six feet high by 15
feet wide, the huge, pastel-hued pieces offer a laid-back look at the
Sunshine State, with images of palm trees, hammocks and swimming pool
scenes that evoke a feeling of total relaxation.

Adjacent to the Carnival Liberty’s swimming pools are four
bronze sculptures of Susanna Holt, who has been commissioned to create
artwork for six Carnival ships. For Carnival Liberty, Holt created
authentic depictions of an anhinga bird drying its wings, sea lions in
repose, and a stag and a doe in standing positions.

Rounding out the Carnival Liberty’s multi-million-dollar
collection are colorful glass pieces of renowned Italian glass artist
Luciano Vistosi, which are illuminated from behind and positioned
along Carnival Liberty’s ship-long promenade, and Sara Righi’s
sculpture of “Aurora,” a bronze sculpture found along the promenade
bar adjacent to the Czar’s Palace Casino.

Carnival Liberty is scheduled to debut July 20, with a series
of 12-day Mediterranean voyages that will run through Oct. 12, 2005.
Featured ports include Naples, Italy; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Venice,
Italy; Messina, Sicily; Barcelona, Spain; Cannes, France; and Livorno,
Italy.

Carnival Liberty will also operate a 16-day transatlantic voyage
departing Rome (Civitavecchia) Oct. 24, and arriving at Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., Nov. 9, 2005, calling at Barcelona, Palma de
Mallorca and Malaga, Spain; Funchal (Madeira), Portugal; and St.
Maarten, Netherlands Antilles.

Carnival Liberty will then launch the cruise industry’s only
year-round six- and eight-day Bahamas/Caribbean schedule from Fort
Lauderdale beginning Nov. 12, 2005.
