    Dream on steroids! I am crazy waiting for names and details, but I bet they will save the best for the anniversary events in the fall. DCL doesn’t turn 20 every day…

    I looked a little bit at her assuming the drawing is somewhat to scale each bump out contains approximately 60 rooms that are curved so to speak. Also it looks like they have added one or two decks above the bridge and one or two decks aft where Palo and Remy are .currently. and this also assumes that this is fairly close to the final drawing. I did see a tube for the Aqua Duck coming from the forward funnel heading aft.

      If past practice holds true the three ships should be structurally identical with the exception of interior decorations anf maybe restauraumt names. Just like the Dream and Fantasy are identical,and Magic and Wonder are also, These new ships which I’ve been calling “improved Dream class” have the same basic dimensions as the Dream class. So far the only real differences are the cabin bumpouts, a couple of extra.decks fore and aft, and lng vs diesel.

    With all those extra passengers is Castaway Cay going to be over crowded? Having been on the Dream and Wonder, I can tell you there’s a huge difference visiting Castaway Cay with a smaller ship. Then again, I might not want to leave the ship while in port. Those are the best days for the Aqua-Duck etc…

    Not a fan. This rendering digress too much from the classic look IMHO…
    It looks like more a paint job on on the enormous & swollen ships of its competitors.

      Probably bigger rooms. Or shifting cabins out a little. Passenger count and cabin count are staying the same.

    It’s a bit difficult to tell but do the bulges line up with the funnels? Maybe the move to LNG has required some design changes to accommodate larger outlets?

      The only real difference between lng and diesel, is the way the fuel is stored. The engines themselves are slightly different, but nothing that would require a major interior redesign. The other thing is the foward funnel is fake. There’s elevators,clubs and a gift shop in them.

    Not a fan of the bump outs on the side at all. I like being able to see the length of the ship. This will end that. Also agree it spoils the clean lines – not nearly as attractive.
