Carnival has ordered another ship. The Carnival Magic is currently under construction. I "wonder" what they'll name it. I hope it is something original for a change.

Read about it here.

Why are they ordering another huge ship? Oh well, guess they figure pack 'em in.

The Fincantieri hull design which provides great stability (as I recently learned in hurricane force winds), reasonable draft and high manueverability is proving to be highly desireable to both passenger and crew alike. The new stateroom configurations are wonderful (i.e. Cove Balconies) and this 130,000 ton class of ship gets into nearly all the popular ports without requiring substantial alterations to the port facilities.

It is an excellent design and should be repeated a few more times. It is adefinite winner!!

I agree with Dwayne on this.. I just hope they can come up with a more original name...Having the same name for ships from multiple lines is getting confusing. "Dream" is used by 3 lines and Freedom by 2 Magic will be reused also... Maybe we should suggest that they hold a name contest to John in his blog?

That is an excellent idea!!

That is how they named the Destiny. Note it is one of possibly only a few ships outside the Fantasy class with a somewhat original name.

I put "wonder" in quotes in jest hoping they won't name it that following the Magic.

Looks like a couple of posters have already asked for a naming contest in response to John's announcement of the new ship... Let's see what he responds with...

Will do. I'll ask for the contest too. I'm making notes now of possible names just in case.

I wish it were a Spirit Class ship....

I wouldn't mind another one either. I'm guessing the lower guest capacity may make the cost per berth to high or something. It wouldn't take much to add some of the new bells and whistles to the original Spirit design it would seem. From what I've seen and heard I'm probably going to like the Dream class. As long as it doesn't have that crowded feel to it.
