An important milestone for Disney’s latest ship took place yesterday, as Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line, joined Meyer Werft’s Managing Partner, Bernard Meyer for the Fantasy’s keel laying ceremony. Minnie Mouse oversaw the festivities.
The traditional ceremony, in which the first block, or section, of the ship is lowered onto the building dock, and a coin is placed beneath the keel for good luck.
The Fantasy is scheduled to be completed early next year.
