The Carnival Dream

Starting out built in Italy, it made a Transatlantic journey to New York in November, 2009.  The pictures on this page are from a travel agent preview night where it was christened by Godmother Marcia Gay Harden, and the first cruise out of the US, a 2 day Cruise to Nowhere out of New York City.  The Dream is permanently located in Port Canaveral, Florida.

I love this picture.  Even though it is through a window, you can make out the New York skyline in the reflection!
