During the construction of any cruise ship, there are traditions and milestones that mark the progress of the ship’s completion. The Carnival Breeze, built in the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy reached this milestone recently. We’ve been avidly following the construction of this third ship in Carnival Cruise Lines’ Dream Class. Here are some photos from the coin ceremony and also some new images of the Carnival Breeze as she takes float and is moved to another dock for her interior phase of construction.
Exclusive images and videos of the coin ceremony and float out, as well as the ship’s many features, are available at the company’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/carnival) under the Carnival Breeze tab.
Carnival Breeze is scheduled to enter service June 3, 2012, with a special 12-day cruise from Venice to Barcelona, positioning the vessel for a summer schedule of 12-day Mediterranean cruises. Following its trans-Atlantic crossing, Carnival Breeze will launch year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises from Miami November 24, 2012, becoming the largest Carnival ship to ever sail from that port.
