The New Carnival Dream!
Frank and I were honored to be part of the Carnival Dream Inaugural. It was exciting to be part of it! When a ship arrives in Manhattan, it arrives with the glamour and prestige it deserves, and the Carnival Dream deserves it! A perfect option for families and adults. A Cruise Ship that caters to everyone!
Oscar-wining actress Marcia Gay Harden christened Carnival Cruise Line’s largest ship by swinging a specially made New York Yankees baseball bat, signed by Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, at a human-sized plastic replica of a Moet & Chandon champagne bottle. At the same time, an actual bottle of champagne was smashed into the vessel’s hull.
The 3,646-passenger Dream is Carnival’s largest ship and the first in a new class of Carnival vessel. It is a ship perfect for families and adults. Innovative, traditional and FUN!
The Dream boasts 19,000 square feet dedicated to children’s facilities, including the four-slide Carnival WaterWorks aqua park, with the longest slide at sea. The space dedicated to children is fantastic! Impressive! Even those “water park” fans will be impressed by the water park on the Dream! But the fun for kids doesn’t stop there! The Kids clubs are inviting and exciting
The Ocean Plaza, an indoor/outdoor cafe and entertainment area that is home to the FunHub, where the line’s new, onboard social networking system can be accessed. Sporadic FunHubs (computers for online networking) are for all to hop on the internet and get in touch with friends.
The ship also introduces the Lanai, a half-mile, open-air promenade on Deck 5 that has lounge areas and whirlpools that cantilever over the ship’s side. Very refreshing. It is actually an addition to the pool decks of a ship, with the feeling of the “promenade”. Clever addition. Added sun space with an adult feeling. The Casino and Crimson dining room also impress. Classy, fun and enchanting. A perfect mix!
Speaking of Adult…the spa sun deck is a very exclusive refuge for adults only. Very “south beach” and luxurious, it offers everything a top notch spa in Miami has. Definitely completes the Spa feeling
We stayed in a Balcony Stateroom and were very pleased. Colors were toned down, room was spacious and the balcony was a breathe of fresh air (literally!). Bed was comfortable, storage was plentiful and the blow dryer was strong. Nothing more to say!!! We were happy.
This ship is a dream. If you are going to sail Carnival, do it…Dream it!!!
