Joe's Take on Fun Ships ...

Ship Architect Does Videos: Carnival decor often generates wonderment over rooms such as Carnival Glory's Amber Palace show lounge or Carnival Pride's Starry Night Jazz Club (homage to Vincent Van Gogh's painting). Fun Ship guests can soon get the skinny on dozens of eye-popper public spaces through in-stateroom videos narrated by Joe Farcus, Carnival interior architect. They'll eventually roll on all 21 Fun Ships. Doing personalized tours of bars, lounges, and restaurants, Farcus reveals what inspired his often whimsical creations, and shares anecdotes. On Carnival Conquest, Farcus talks about flower bud stools in Henri’s Dance Club – a la French painter Henri Rousseau. Carnival Liberty passengers hear about oversized faux white-diamond necklaces at Harry’s, the ship’s supper club, inspired by designer Harry Winston. CCL has three ships on order: Carnival Freedom, set for February '07 debut; Carnival Splendor, debuting in fall '08, and a 130,000-ton SuperLiner – the largest "Fun Ship" ever – debuting in fall '09.
