With the 130,000-ton Carnival Dream set to debut in Europe September 21, 2009, the finishing touches are being made to the ship’s interior spaces at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the stunning lounges and dining areas of newest and largest Carnival “Fun Ship,” including the Encore! show lounge, the  Circle C facility for 12- to14-year olds,  and the Jackpot casino. 

Following a series of 12-day Mediterranean voyages and eight-day sailings from New York, Carnival Dream will reposition to Port Canaveral to operate a special nine-day cruise before launching year-round seven-day Caribbean service Dec. 12.
