Welcome Disney Fantasy!

The Disney Fantasy, the fourth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, was christened yesterday, March 1, 2012 during a star-studded christening celebration at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal in New York City.

There were celebrity performances from Jerry Seinfeld, Neil Patrick Harris, Nick Cannon and Heather Headley, and the Disney Fantasy godmother, Mariah Carey, took center stage for the christening moment. Carey led the audience in a countdown and then a 6-foot tall bottle of champagne in the Atrium Lobby erupted and showered the crowd with confetti and streamers as a traditional bottle of champagne broke against the ship’s hull.

Two of our agents, Nikki and Brook were able to go to Pier 88 in Manhattan to view the magnificent ship!

The Fantasy left New York City around 4:20 PM today and Brook was able to see her off.  Here is a video she took of the ship leaving and sounding her horns, saying good-bye to the Big Apple! 

The Fantasy is headed to warmer climates with a stop at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay; then Nassau, Bahamas, before finishing her journey in Port Canaveral, Florida.  The Maiden Voyage takes place on March 31.

The Disney Fantasy will sail from Port Canaveral on seven-night Caribbean itineraries that alternate eastern (St. Maarten and St. Thomas) and western (Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel). All itineraries will include a stop at Castaway Cay.
