Thirteen-year-old Deidra Shores, the winner of last fall's NBC Today Show Kid Reporter contest, will be sailing on the Carnival Dream next week and filing video reports directly from the ship at the line’s social networking site,   

Carnival sponsored the Kid Reporter contest, and the grand prize was a weeklong Caribbean cruise for Deidra and her family aboard the line’s newest and largest ship.

Throughout the voyage, the aspiring journalist will document her week-long adventure with exclusive videos of the Carnival Dream and footage of her experiences ashore.

Be sure to check back next week to view Deidra’s exclusive reports from the Carnival Dream!
