Carnival Dream is under way

//Carnival Dream is under way

The newest and biggest cruise ship in Carnival’s fleet, the Carnival Dream, has left the shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, and is on its way to Civitavecchia, the port for Rome, to take on passengers for the first time.
The 130,000-ton vessel will be sailing three inaugural voyages in the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic for a glamorous naming ceremony in New York in November.
Carrying up to 3,646 passengers, Dream is nowhere near the size of Royal Carribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, which has a capacity of more than 6,000. But Carnival believe they have their own unique attractions on board, including including Ocean Plaza, an indoor/outdoor cafe and live music venue and the Lanai, an outdoor area featuring a wrap-around promenade and cantilevered whirlpools suspended over the ship’s side.
Accommodation includes two-bath, five-berth staterooms designed to appeal to families, and “cove” balcony cabins located close to the waterline.
I was hoping to read an update on cruise director John Heald’s blog, but it looks like he’s been too busy shooting videos to have any spare time to keep his readers informed of the handover ceremony.
He’ll have full details available soon, I’m sure. And I will be flying out to New York for the naming ceremony so there will be more details here then.
