Carnival Glory Gets Official Name
Yesterday’s naming ceremony for Carnival Glory, the largest ship ever to sail from Port Canaveral, went off without a hitch. After the festivities – American astronaut Sally Ride served as godmother -- the 2,974-passenger Carnival Glory then sailed off for a special five-day inaugural cruise to the Western Caribbean. It begins its regular sailings Saturday, alternating seven-day voyages to the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Carnival Glory is the second vessel in the cruise line’s Conquest class.

In other Carnival news, the company is laying the foundation for another new ship. Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri – which just waved goodbye to Carnival Glory two weeks ago – is already back to work on its next vessel for the line. It has laid the first “building blocks” for sister ship Carnival Valor, which is slated for launch in December 2004.
