Karl Holz, President, Disney Cruise Line
Fireworks lit the morning sky as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse welcomed a brand-new, 4,000 passenger ship to Port Canaveral, Florida. The Disney Fantasy first passed by Jetty Park with hundreds of Disney cast and crew cheering her on. The ship then sailed into Port Canaveral greeted by a flotilla of water craft and a firework spectacular.
When the newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet launches March 31, 2012, it will be a high-water mark for family cruise vacations. This ship, Disney’s fourth, offers entertainment, activities and dining experiences purpose-planned for seven-night cruises.
