MISS UNIVERSE 1993 TO NAME FIESTAMARINA

 MIAMI, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Miss Universe 1993, Dayanara Torres from Puerto Rico, is to perform the naming ceremony for the FiestaMarina at the Port of Miami Oct. 18, 1993, officials of FiestaMarina Cruises, a new division of Carnival Cruise Lines announces today.
 Highlights of the event include appearances by local dignitaries and a special performance by a brass and percussion ensemble from Miami's own New World Symphony.
 Following the festivities in Miami, Torres will sail aboard the FiestaMarina on a three-day pre-inaugural cruise to San Juan, Puerto Rico, followed by two days of celebrations welcoming the ship to its new home port for year-round Caribbean cruises.
 "It is fitting that a native of Puerto Rico, the current Miss Universe, is to name the FiestaMarina and return to her homeland by sea aboard the first and only cruise ship expressly designed for Latin American passengers," said Carnival Cruise Lines' president Bob Dickinson.
 Eighteen-year-old Torres, a student and part-time model, hails from the small town of Toa Alta outside of San Juan. Following her crowning as Miss Universe 1993 in Mexico City May 21, Torres returned to Puerto Rico for a homecoming celebration that drew thousands of supporting fans into the streets of San Juan.
 Following several days of introductory festivities, the FiestaMarina is to depart Oct. 22 on its inaugural cruise to the Caribbean, calling at the ports of St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.; Caracas/La Guaira, Venezuela; Aruba, Netherland Antilles and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Expanding on Carnival's popular "Fun Ship" concept, the 1,200-passenger FiestaMarina will offer a unique combination of activities, dining, entertainment and other amenities to create an ambiance specifically appealing to Latin American tastes, with all shipboard services offered in Spanish and Portuguese.
