Because when the sun goes down, the fun gets turned up a notch. The 130,000-ton “Carnival Dream” is an immense floating resort with large-scale amenities. This is Carnival’s largest and newest ship in it’s fleet. You'll find a sprawling 15,000-square-foot health and beauty centre on the spa deck. A variety of entertainment venues, among them a piano bar, dance club, wine bar, sports bar, casino and show lounge all of which promises fun evenings for all of us.

While you were sleeping....we sailed to St. Thomas, a tropical paradise. Not all of St. Thomas' treasures are buried. Most of them are right in the open on this gorgeous island, home of the infamous Bluebeard's Tower. Whether looking for jewels, crystal, perfume and fine wines in the shops of Charlotte Amalie, or soaking up the sun on the incredible beaches, you'll marvel at the wealth of history on this treasure-filled paradise. Crystalline rivers flow through impressive lowland jungles, home to a myriad of rare wildlife. Silky sand beaches, waving palms and colorful coral gardens are just part of St. Thomas’s natural wonders. Take the City Tour or go biking thru the mountains....it’s all here for you to enjoy. Return to your ship for a wonderful dinner and an evening of entertainment.

Dinner and entertainment will offered again tonight.
