Disney Cruise Ships


Disney Fantasy Floats Out

Disney's newest cruise ship, the Disney Fantasy, is one step closer to its maiden voyage scheduled this spring. Yesterday, the Fantasy had its float out test in the shipyard's harbor where it's being constructed.

In true Disney fanfare, thousands turned out for a look at the ship upon the water while fireworks exploded over the harbor.

Construction will still continue on the interior of the vessel, giving it signature Disney touches.

The Fantasy's first voyage is scheduled for March 31 with a planned departure from Port Canaveral, Florida.

Security Increased At Disney Fantasy Shipyard Following Damage To Ship

Disney Fantasy, the newest Disney Cruise Ship currently under construction in a Germany shipyard, sustained water damage earlier this month. Now, Meyer Werft has boosted its security for the yard.

A mysterious water valve leak aboard the Fantasy caused water damage on the ship sometime in early December. While early reports out of Germany had the damage estimated at over $1 million, Disney has called that figure an exaggeration. According to Disney spokeswoman Rebecca Peddle, "There was some water damage that resulted in them having to replace some carpeting. It was not significant."

The enrichment series on the Disney Cruise Line is one of my favorite things about taking a Disney Cruise. Every time I show up for a class or seminar I know that I will come away with some new piece of knowledge to tickle my Disney loving heart. A couple of weeks ago I posted about the fun Mixology Class my daughter and I participated in, but we didn't stop there.
