What time of year does Carnival change ports that the ships sail out of? I am sort of tied to go out of Miami and I would like to see a Sirit Class ship stationed over there? Is there anything in the works? I e-mailed Carnival a week or so ago with this question and no answer.
A note of interest for the Southern Itineraries starting in the fall of 2010..Aruba will be once again included as well as Grand Turk, the Dominican Republic and Curacao. This is great news in my opinion.
I love those ships as well, and had to drive to Tampa for the Legend a few years ago. I've always said that I wouldn't mind if they built a few more of the Spirit class ships. I doubt they will though, as they carry approx. 850 less passengers than the Conquest class. Those ships were purpose built for doing more long distance itineraries.
I wish they'd move the Pride to Charleston and offer more long distant itineraries. I'm not complaining though and am happy to have the Fantasy coming.
The new Carnival Dream is a very large variation of the Destiny class. Beautiful as she is - she is a variation. But as I reported in another post - she handles rough seas quite well - for that I am extremely grateful as events turned out!! It is a great hull design!!

I've now read the same conclusion multiple times on various forums and press outlets. Billy, I think your opinion was the first one I read.
From the reports I think they have this design finally perfected. I was getting concerned when the first renderings came out about the Cove Balconies being so low to the water line. The consensus is she sails like a Dream.
