Watch Throughout the Year for New Cruise Ship Launches
While some cruise ships scheduled for introduction in 2011 are new vessels that are almost identical to existing ships (Carnival Cruise Lines’ Carnival Magic, a Dream-class ship) or brand-new designs (Oceania’s Marina), the introduction of a new ship into a cruise line’s fleet is always exciting. At least one "new" ship is actually a refurbished older ship. P&O Cruises’ Adonia, launched originally as an R-class ship by the now defunct Renaissance Cruises, most recently sailed as Princess Cruises’ Royal Princess.
Without further ado, CruiseDiva.com is happy to share a detailed preview of the Class of 2011.
What Else Is Coming Up?
Instead of star-gazing for answers or predictions of what’s to come, we’ll continue to report the latest in CruiseDiva.com’s Cruise News and here on Cruise Diva’s Blog to keep you up to date. Mark your calendar for the Disney Dream introduction on January 19th when Cruise Diva will be blogging from onboard for the christening event and a special 2-night cruise that will call at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
Fireworks light the morning sky as the Disney Dream, Disney Cruise Line's newest ship, arrived this morning for the first time to her home port of Port Canaveral, Florida after traveling approximately 6,500 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from Bremerhaven, Germany. The Disney Dream will welcome guests on her maiden voyage on Jan. 26, 2011, and is scheduled to sail 3-, 4- and 5-night cruises to the Bahamas and Disney’s private island Castaway Cay, from Port Canaveral. The 4,000-passenger Disney Dream features AquaDuck, a first-of-its-kind shipboard water coaster, magical portholes in inside staterooms that provide guests with a real-time view outside the ship, rotational dining in elaborately-themed restaurants, Disney-infused children’s spaces and more.
