Meyer Werft floats out Disney Fantasy

Written by Nick Blenkey

disfantMeyer Werft has undocked the latest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet. The 128,000 grt, 1,115 ft x 125 ft Disney Fantasy was slowly floated out of the shipyard’s  covered building dock on Sunday, January 8.

The second of two post-Panamax cruise liners ordered by Disney from the German shipbuilder, the Disney Fantasy is the fourth cruise liner in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. With 14 decks, she has 1,250 staterooms and can accommodate 4,000 passengers—along with the over 1,450 cast and crew members.

While the ship is berthed alongside the shipyard’s pier, remaining work to be carried out includes installation of the mast.

The ship is scheduled to be conveyed to the North Sea via the river Ems in two weeks and delivery to the owner is planned to take place in  Bremerhaven on February 9.
