Highlights from other public areas include:
The Amber Palace, an homage to Russia's famed room of the same name, is the ship's main theater. Expect mosaics of amber on the walls and rococo moldings, gold leaf columns with female figures, candelabra, cornices and a "double eagle" image of Russian lore, and paintings of famous Russian czars and czarinas.
The White Heat Dance Club is "Liberace-like," with gigantic white (no-flame) candles -- the image of fire is created by fiber-optic lights.
On the lounge front, Bar Blue will offer jazz and the African safari-inspired Ebony Cabaret will be the ship's more intimate performance venue.
On this ship, Carnival's well-established dinner club alternative restaurant concept will be called the Emerald Room where a point-of-interest will be a huge medallion on the wall that's made up of hundreds of light fixtures creating a single massive emerald.
The 110,000-ton, 2,974-passenger Carnival Glory is slated for a July 19 debut. The ship will sail year-round Caribbean itineraries -- 7-days, alternating between eastern and western routes.
