Well, the Magic is currently about to go to sea trials if I remember correctly and then the Breeze will be the 3rd of the "Dream class" ships. Not sure when they are due to begin construction or when its supposed to be finished.

I hope the Magic is decorated better than the Dream! I love Carnival, but I really wish they would find a new decorator! The Dream is too dark inside and has way too much orange in it! I think they should lighten up the interior of their ships with more neutral colors. This is just my opinion though, and I know there are many people who love the way the Carnival ships are decorated!

Starting with the Breeze, Carnival will have a new decorator.

just my opinion, but i doubt it. i expect that they'll build out a few more dream class ships before another class. i'd expect them to build at least as many as conquest class (5)...

lots of reasons why i think that, but that's how i see new builds panning out in the near future.

I'm with you. I think they will at least build 2 more after the Breeze. Every class of ship they have built have had at least five ships in it if you count Costa's ships too since they are pretty much the same.

Fantasy- 8
Destiny/Triumph-3 + 2 Costa
Conquest-5
Spirit- 4 + 2 Costa
Splendor- 1 + 5 Costa
Dream-3

There is a sister ship to the Splendor being built (because they took the generator from it and flew it to SFO to replace the burned out one on the Splendor)....

I'm thinking Ft Lauderdale...

I wonder whether there won't be a lot of European cruises with the Carnival Breeze. Seems to me they have been extending the Europe sale over and over to get more bookings on The Carnival Magic.

I can't believe they haven't released all the schedules for May 2012 yet!
