Thursday is the BIG day…The Carnival Dream Naming Ceremony. We're officially welcoming her to the high seas and our fleet. In celebration of our newest ship, her godmother – Academy Award- and Tony Award-winning actress, Marcia Gay Harden – will christen her. Watch it all take place, here – LIVE.

Last Friday was a day of celebration, entertainment and activities when Marcia Gay Harden - Carnival Dream's Godmother - unveiled the Big Book of Dreams on NBC'S TODAY SHOW.

This World's Largest Children's Book - 15'6" high x 20' wide - was inspired by the imaginative dreams of children who sailed on Carnival this spring. We created this book for the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
