Carnival Breeze has been selected as the name for the line’s new 3,690 passenger cruise ship scheduled to enter service in spring 2012.
To be constructed by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, the 130,000 ton Carnival Breeze will be the third in the line’s Dream class. The series’ namesake vessel, Carnival Dream, entered service in 2009 and a sister ship, Carnival Magic, is currently under construction at Fincantieri and is scheduled to debut in Europe in May 2011.
Carnival Breeze will offer many of the innovations featured on Carnival Dream as well as some unique new elements created just for this vessel that will be detailed at a later date, along with homeport and itinerary information.
“Carnival Breeze promises to be a spectacular addition to our fleet and its name reflects the continued evolution of our brand while conveying the fun and carefree spirit associated with a Carnival cruise,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival President and CEO.
Signature Dream-class elements featured on Carnival Breeze will include expansive facilities for children and teens, a 23,750 square foot Cloud 9 Spa and The Lanai, an outdoor promenade featuring cantilevered whirlpools that extend over the ship’s sides.
Other features will include a WaterWorks aqua park with a 300 foot long corkscrew water slide, an indoor/outdoor café and live entertainment venue called Ocean Plaza and a wide range of staterooms including deluxe ocean views with two bathrooms, some of which feature five berths and hold particular appeal for families.
Carnival Breeze will be the 24th vessel in Carnival Cruise Lines’ fleet, which operates 3 to 15 day voyages to The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Panama Canal, Canada, New England, Bermuda and Europe.
