It's been the kind of week that cruise ship aficionados and those of us who cover the cruise industry dream about. Two major cruise lines have shared a look at the exciting and novel features their new vessels will offer and now we have a third. Not the largest of the new-ship trio, but certainly not the least, the 130,000-ton Carnival Dream will be the largest “Fun Ship” ever constructed by Carnival Cruise Lines and an all-new ship class offering a host of on-board innovations and amenities.
Currently being constructed at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, the 3,646-passenger Carnival Dream will usher in a new era of “Fun Ship” cruising when it makes its debut in September 2009. With a new layout, sleek hull, and distinctive profile, Carnival Dream is designed to deliver the ultimate vacation experience. With even more space to play, creative interiors by design genius Joe Farcus are sure to pique the imagination of all guests.
Unique features of the Carnival Dream include a new concept in entertainment called The Piazza, a stunning indoor/outdoor café and live music venue; the most elaborate children’s facilities at sea, including expansive play areas and a huge Carnival WaterWorks aqua park; “scenic whirlpools” that extend over the ship’s beam; and a variety of new stateroom categories, including those specifically catering to families. Carnival Dream will also offer many other exciting and innovative features that will be announced in the coming months.
