When the Disney Dream set sail on her christening cruise, heading for the warmer, sunny shores of Castaway Cay this week, there were hundreds of media personalities from all over the globe on board, all sending their stories back to their waiting audiences, who were looking for the first glimpse of an Aqua Duck adventure, the first taste of Remy, the first merchandise from the shops. But also on board were some stars, who were as busy taking in the sights, tastes, and sounds of the new ship as the rest of the guests.
Jennifer Hudson posed in the ship’s beautiful atrium lobby, after christening the ship earlier in the day on Wednesday. And as the voyage got underway, photographers caught up with John Stamos posing with Donald Duck, while Marlee Matlin flashed “I love you” in sign language, accompanied by Donald’s Main Squeeze, Daisy. Celebrity media personalities like Sam Champion of “Good Morning America,” Whoopi Goldberg of “The View,” and popular travel personality Samantha Brown were also on board.
Look for the coverage – and the stories – from the Dream to continue this upcoming week, as the ship sets sail on her Maiden Voyage Wednesday, January 26.
