Port Canaveral, Florida- As one of Carnival Cruise Lines newest and largest ships, Carnival Dream takes cruise vacations to new levels. The 1,004-foot long ship sails every week from Port Canaveral on alternating 7-day itineraries to the Eastern or Western Caribbean. Integrated into the ship are Iluminarc LED fixtures lighting the ship’s enormous Lido Deck. This is the third ship following the Carnival Spirit and Carnival Miracle to feature Iluminarc lighting. 

Lighting the Lido Deck, which also serves as an outdoor party area and “Seaside Theater” for outdoor movies, are 30 Iluminarc Ilumipod™ 48 IP. The IP66-rated fixtures are perfectly suited for the hostile environment of extreme humidity and caustic sea spray. The white finish allows the fixtures to blend into the ship’s architecture. “Bringing the Ilumipod™ 48 IP fixtures on board has added greatly to the fun atmosphere on the Lido Deck.” says Graham Neave, Carnival’s Entertainment Technical Supervisor-Lighting, who credits Carnival Fleet Supervisor Steve Gamblin for programming the lights to set the right ambience.
