It seems not all that long ago that I was in Port Canaveral watching the christening of the Disney Dream. We then got to sail on a two-day introductory cruise and thoroughly enjoyed this new vessel.
This week we got a first good look at the Disney Fantasy as it was floated out of its enclosed building dock at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Of course, there was a Disney touch: Fireworks filled the sky.
This symbolizes one of the final stages of this ship’s construction and marks a significant milestone towards the March 31, 2012 maiden voyage.
The Disney Fantasy features many of the innovations found on her sister ship, Disney Dream, with several new guest experiences exclusive to the ship. New experiences found on the Disney Fantasy include two Broadway-style musical spectaculars for the Walt Disney Theatre, a dining experience at Animator’s Palate where guests’ own drawings magically come to life, an interactive adventure quest starring the Muppets, a splashtacular water play area called AquaLab, a sophisticated nighttime entertainment area for adults inspired by European travel and much more .
The Disney Fantasy will sail seven-night alternating eastern and western Caribbean itineraries. All voyages will depart from Port Canaveral, Fla. and include a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
