MS Ocean Dream (1981-built as "Carnival Tropicale", aka Costa Tropicale, Pacific Star, last drydock refurbishment in 2017) started Caribbean itineraries in mid-January 1982 as CCL-Carnival Cruise Line's first newbuild ship - "MS Tropicale".
In September 2020, Ocean Dream ship's last operator (Peace Boat) replaced its two bareboat charter contracts (for Ocean Dream and Pullmantur Zenith) with a larger vessel charter (Pacific World/ex Sun Princess). In October 2020, Carnival Corporation (shipowner) sold the 40-years-old liner for scrap. In January 2021, the vessel was beached at India's Alang Ship Breaking Yard and subsequently scrapped.
Keeping Carnival's original design, Costa Tropicale had 7 passenger-accessible decks (out of 11). Carnival Tropicale was transformed into Costa Tropicale during the extensive drydock refurbishment in 2001 (USD 25 million project) conducted at Fincantieri's shipyard in Genoa Italy. The Carnival Tropicale's max passenger capacity was increased to 1412 (with double occupancy 1022/lower berths).
Costa Tropicale (Ocean Dream) deck plans show a total of 11 decks, of which 8 were passenger-accessible and 6 housed passenger cabins.
The cruise liner's signature facilities included an MDR (main dining room restaurant without windows), 2-deck high Atrium, Lobby Hall (Reception and Shore Excursions desks), The Mall (shops), Beauty Salon, Tropicana Cabaret (theater lounge), children's' sundeck (paddling pool), Kids' Room, Promenade Deck, Photo Gallery and Shop, Internet Coffee Lounge, Cigar Bar, Miami Ball Room (dance bar lounge), Library, Habana Casino (gaming bar lounge), Casablanca Great Bar (disco nightclub), Duke Bar (Duke Ellington-themed lounge with a grand piano), Bahia Club (bar lounge and Churrascaria/Brazilian steakhouse restaurant), Nautica Spa & Fitness (wellness complex with gym, sauna, treatment rooms), Giada Great Buffet (Lido restaurant with indoor-outdoor seating), 2x whirlpools, 3x swimming pools, teak sundecks (sunbathing areas with poolside bars, loungers and deckchairs), Sports Deck (Sports Court, Jogging Track).
