Disney Fantasy Set for NYC Christening?

The Disney Fantasy under constructionWhile Disney Cruise Line has not announced an official christening venue for its new 4,000-passenger, 128,000-ton Disney Fantasy, the newbuild is scheduled to be berthed at Manhattan’s cruise terminal from February 28 through March 2, 2012, for four days, before heading south for Port Canaveral, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The Disney Dream was christened in Florida this past January, and with the Disney Magic homeporting in New York this coming summer, the Disney Fantasy may be set for a New York christening, or at minimum, a preview event.
