To showcase its newest and largest ship, the 130,000-ton Carnival Dream, Carnival Cruise Lines has produced an informative video to provide a unique look at the 3,646-passenger vessel, which is currently under construction in Italy and set to debut this month. The video can be viewed on the Carnival Dream’s website here (be patient, it takes a moment to load on my cable broadband).
Featuring the latest production techniques and state-of-the-art animation, the video takes viewers on a virtual journey throughout Carnival Dream, utilizing fun, energetic narration and editing that is evocative of the Carnival brand.
The video highlights Carnival Dream’s wide variety of bars, lounges and nightspots, formal and casual dining areas, and open deck amenities, including the Carnival WaterWorks aqua park and the Seaside Theatre LED screen. Also showcased is Ocean Plaza, a stunning new indoor/outdoor café and live music venue, and The Lanai, an outdoor area featuring a wrap-around promenade and cantilevered whirlpools hanging over the side of the ship.
Carnival Dream is slated to debut Sept. 21, 2009, with the first of three 12-day Mediterranean voyages from Rome (Civitavecchia). Following a 16-day transatlantic crossing, Carnival Dream will operate two eight-day voyages from New York, then reposition to Port Canaveral, Florida, for a special nine-day voyage followed by the launch of year-round seven-day Caribbean service Dec. 12.
