Carnival DreamThe new ship is scheduled for delivery in 2012, following the 2011 launch of the Carnival Magic reports Seatrade Insider.  This is big news as it ends a near two year drought in new ship orders and helps validate the cruise industries strong position with consumers and continued dedication to growth.  The current economic environment also helped Carnival procure an excellent price, at $200,000 per lower berth compared to $202,000 for the Carnival Magic and $259,000 for RCI's Allure of the Seas (sister ship of the Oasis).
