On March 1, 2012, Disney Cruise Line held the christening ceremony for the new Disney Fantasy cruise ship docked in New York Harbor. The two-party ceremony began with a musical show inside the ship’s Walt Disney Theatre hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris (that also featured comedian Jerry Seinfeld) and concluded in the ship’s atrium with Disney CEO Bob Iger, Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs, actor/musician Nick Cannon, and his wife and godmother of the ship, Mariah Carey. Mickey and Minnie Mouse were also on hand to help christen the ship.
Here’s a gallery of photos previewing the new Disney Fantasy as it near completion. Gene Sloan from USA Today went on a recent tour. Check it out.
Disney Cruise Line is estimating to launch the Disney Fantasy on April 7, 2012. A sister ship to the Disney Dream, it will weigh in at approximately 128,000 Gross Registered Tons (GRT) and carry 4,000 passengers. The Disney Fantasy will homeport from Port Canaveral and offer seven-night Caribbean itineraries.
The 4,000-passenger Fantasy will sail week-long Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral. Its maiden voyage is scheduled for March 31, 2012.
Carnival Cruise Lines will be launching its third Dream-class cruise ship in Spring 2012 . The Breeze is another Dream-class ship which is Carnival’s largest class of ship at 130,000 GRT and carrying 3,690 passengers. Similar to the Carnival Magic, the Carnival Breeze will feature the signature Waterworks and Cloud 9 Spa. Once the Breeze is launched, Carnival will have 24 ships on the sea.
Once launched, she will have a series of 12-day Mediterranean cruises before repositioning in November to the Port of Miami for year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises.
