Dream a little Dream

It’s cloudy yucky in New York today, but from my friend’s 26th floor apartment I can see a bright spot, the Carnival Dream. I’ll be onboard the newest and largest Carnival ship later today for the official naming ceremony – featuring the ship’s godmother, actress Marcia Gay Harden, and some sort of mysterious “exhilarating dance” performance (not by the Tony- and Academy Award-winning actress I don’t think). But then again, this ship features a Pink Floyd -accompanied laser light show at night, so who knows.

The 130,000-ton, 3,646-passenger ship leaves tomorrow for a sampler two-night sailing, and I’ll be onboardfor that too (the ship earlier debuted with a series of cruises in Europe).

BTW, you can see the champagne smashing and other naming ceremony festivities live around 4 p.m.
