Carnival Cruise Lines’ Senior Photographer Radu Ursu is currently on board the 130,000-ton Carnival Dream and is documenting the ship’s inaugural Mediterranean cruise schedule which began Sept. 21.

The talented lensman captured these spectacular images as the ship departed Venice.

The line’s largest ship, Carnival Dream will sail three 12-day Mediterranean voyages before repositioning to New York for a pair of eight-day cruises to Florida and The Bahamas.  Carnival Dream launches year-round seven-day Caribbean service from Port Canaveral Dec. 12.
