Carnival Dream. The Carnival Dream is now open for bookings. She will start sailing on 9.21.09.
This is a brand new class of ship for Carnival. She will 130,000 Gross Tons.
The Carnival Dream will be introducing The Piazza, an indoor/outdoor cafe with a live music venue. The most elaborate childrens facility at sea.
I think the most impressive enhancements on the Dream are going to be the innovative designs and additions they are making to the staterooms. They will have the Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms. These will have an additional bathroom featuring a Junior tub and Sink. 20 of these cabins will be able to hold 5 passengers. These will be the perfect offering for family of 5 with young children.
The Cove Balconies will be an affordable offering on main Deck 2. It will have Solid Steel Verandah as opposed to the Plexiglas Railings on the higher decks.
So for those of us who love to sail on brand new ships. The Carnival Dream is going to be full of new amenities, but will be priced lower than the much hyped Oasis of the Seas. I am looking forward to going on both ships, but if my pesky budget gets in the way, I will most likely find myself going on the Carnival Dream in Early December 2009.
