Disney Fantasy Cruise Ship Floats Out To Sea

On Monday, Disney’s newest cruise ship, Disney Fantasy, floated out of the enclosed building dock at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany as thousands of excited children and adults looked on. Not only does this symbolize one of the ship’s final stages of construction, it also marks a major milestone towards the maiden voyage on March 31, 2012.

If you have been reading and following along on our updates over the last year, the Disney Fantasy features many of the same innovations as her sister ship, Disney Dream, but there will also be several new experiences exclusive to the ship.

Just some of the new features 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 more!
