Carnival
OVERVIEW

Carnival Dream represents a large step forward
over earlier Carnival ships.  Since the debut of
Carnival Destiny, Carnival has been developing the
Destiny design over eight subsequent ships.  
However, it has done this in relatively small
increments, adding new features and increasing the
size about 12,000 gross tons in 12 years.
The Dream is some 17,000 gross tons larger than her
immediate predecessor Carnival Splendor and 50
feet longer.  The result is a very substantial ship
with a  great deal of gravitas.
This greater size has allowed Carnival to fulfill its
desire to be very much a family-oriented cruise
option.  Carnival carries approximately half of the
children that set to sea each year but it is still thought
of by many as the  young people's party boats that it
was in its early days.  With the space and facilities
dedicated to children on the Dream, there can be no
doubt that the emphasis here is on family-fun.
This is not to say that the Dream is not an option for
adults.  Its comedy club has family and adult
performances.  It has a large outdoor adults-only
area called Serenity.  It also has a large and
luxurious spa.
In fact, that is another theme that Carnival has been
developing over the years - - better and better
quality.  This is especially apparent in the food
offerings in the main dining rooms and the specialty
restaurant.
Dream also features quite a few new ideas.  Chief
among these is the innovative outdoor promenade the
Lanai.
Overall, the interior design of the ship is more
restrained than in earlier ships by ship designer Joe
Farcus.  While this produces less opportunity to
explore the ship to see how the underlying design
theme has been developed in the various public
areas, the overall result is still attractive.  Farcas'
use of brighter lighting especially serves to enhance
the overall decor.           
Carnival Dream is homeported in Port Canaveral,
Florida and does cruises to the Caribbean and to the
Bahamas.

Dream Atrium towards the skylight.

Below: On three sides of the Atrium
are open balconies where guests can
watch the entertainment and
happenings in the lobby at the base of
the Atrium.   
Colorful glass elevators travel the forward wall of the
Atrium.
Above: The centerpiece of the Atrium is a combination
bar, stage and glass staircase connecting the lobby to the
other main public room decks.

Below: Looking upwards from the base of the glass
staircase.
Above left: The Dream has interactive digital display screens that can be used to obtain
information about dining, activities and other information about the ship.

Above right:  There is also a display screen showing the ship's position, speed and course.
Dream has an expansive Bridge with
state-of-the-art technology.  The officers drive the
ship from a central console situated in front of
two pilot-like chairs.  There are also control
consoles on either side of the bridge that are
used in docking and undocking.  Because the
Lanai blocks a direct view of the waterline along
the side of the ship, television screens show the
officers how close the ship is to the dock.  
The technology on Dream includes ACOS, an integrated navigational
system that links four radars, two gyrocompasses, speedpilot,
trackpilot, autopilot and two global positioning systems.  
Above:  Dream is a Fun Ship and thus a whimsical sculpture of the
Dream made from various sizes of cans greeted guests attending the
ship's naming ceremony.
Complementing interior architect Joe Farcus' designs are various works of art.  
For the most part, those works in the public areas are found in the stairways
and in the hallways outside the cabins.  However, there is also the occasional
surprise such as reproductions of Frederic Remington's Old West bronze
sculptures.
