Once again I can count on you guys to give me great info. I was told by a Carnival PVP a few months back about a new ship called Dream, but I can't find anything about it. Have you guys heard of this?

Hi vacationbound,

We had some discussion of this a while back, because they are naming the new ships Dream and Magic.

Here is a link to the press release.

vacationbound,

I understand that while those ships are still based on the "Destiny"-class (like the "Conquest"-class ships and "Carnival Splendor"), they have a slightly different deck arrangement and a different stern design.

It's interesting to see the changes made from one class to another. About ten years ago, I was on a fairly new ship from another line (Celebrity). Two years ago, I was on a ship that was two classes removed from the first. This past summer, we sailed on the one that came between them. I found it fascinating -- it was completing a puzzle, in a way.

Even within a class, there are occasionally slight modifications as the designers and cruise lines learn about what works and what doesn't. The two Carnival ships we've sailed, Carnival Destiny and Carnival Victory, are of the same class but have very, very slight differences in size and design. Decor will almost always vary from one ship to the next.

Great question, by the way.

I thought it was a great question too. I loved watching how the Holiday transformed from the Tropicale. For those that might not know the Tropicale was CCL's first new ship. And the first to have the famous funnel. After the Holiday class they really stepped it up with the Fantasy class. I think that class of ship design propelled Carnival to where they are today. It is all so interesting to me.

The Elation and Paradise are a little different from the rest of the Fantasy Class.

They were built with Aziprod engines - which have 2 pods below the ship that can rotate 360 degrees, instead of the usual drive shaft, propeller and rudder. They can turn circles around their fleet mates.

The second difference is up on Sports Deck. The Elation and Paradise has Camp Carnival up there, overlooking the pool deck. If you look on the deck plans for the rest of the fleet, there is nothing in that space. There are actually 2 doors marked "Private". Behind them are 2 owner's suites. I guess that was where the corporate executives went on vacation

Oops, I'll update my list. I didn't notice that was on there.

Tropicale is pretty much in a class by herself. She was Carnival's first newbuild, so pre-dated the Holiday class, which were about 10,000 gross tons larger.
