Imagine what it would be like to be one of the first to sail on Carnival Dream, even before her debut. Now you can. An online video highlighting the sleek exterior and expansive outside deck areas that are a main feature of the 130,000-ton Carnival Dream is now available to view on the cruise line’s web site at www.carnival.com/dream.
The virtual tour offers a closer look at some of the Carnival Dream’s new and innovative features, including the “scenic whirlpools” that extend over the ship’s beam. Additionally, there are also some pretty good birds-eye views of the expansive Carnival Waterworks (pictured here).
The first of a new class of “Fun Ship,” the 3,646-passenger Carnival Dream is set to launch in Europe with an inaugural 12-day Grand Mediterranean cruise from Rome (Civitavecchia), featuring seven ports. After two more 12-day Grand Mediterranean cruises, she will set sail on a 16-day transatlantic crossing to New York, where she will be in position for two 8-day Port Canaveral (Orlando) and Bahamas cruises. Following her New York departures, Carnival Dream will reposition to her homeport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she will operate year-round 7-day Caribbean cruises starting Dec 5, 2009. She will depart every Saturday from Port Canaveral on alternating weeklong cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
