The Disney Fantasy sustained some damage due to Hurricane Sandy, reports have announced. While the terrified passengers who were aboard the ship during its tumultuous journey took to the internet to write about their experiences, Disney Cruise Line downplays the damage.
Rebecca Peddie, manager of public affairs for Disney Destinations, said:
Overall, the ship is fine and is currently out sailing a seven-night Western Caribbean voyage. We had minor damage involving some cracked windows and some furniture damage that we have addressed.
However, cruise passengers had a different story to tell. One woman called the journey “terrifying,” and said “the damage that was done to the bars, stores and ship was stunning the next morning and very sad.”
Luckily, everyone is safe and the cruise ship appears to be in good operating condition. We’ll let you know more if further details are released.
