Celebrities including Jerry Seinfeld and Neil Patrick Harris, joined Mariah as she led the crowd in a countdown ahead of her husband, Nick Cannon and Minnie Mouse breaking a traditional bottle of champagne against the ship’s hull.
A 6-foot tall bottle of champagne erupted to shower guests in the atrium with confetti and streamers with Captain Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney Company president and CEO Bob Iger and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Tom Staggs joining in the festivities.
“The Disney Fantasy is a spectacular addition to our fleet and builds on the creativity, innovation and artistry that are hallmarks of the Disney Cruise Line,” Mr Iger said.
“Like her sister ship, the Dream, the Fantasy, will connect guests to iconic Disney characters and storytelling, creating unforgettable, one-of-a-kind vacation experiences for the entire family.”
The Disney Fantasy arrived in Port Canaveral, Florida this week where she will embark on seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries from 31 March 2012.
Who do you think should be the godmother for the next ship that is launched?
