DISNEY FANTASY, the newest ship of Disney Cruise Line, sailed past the Statue of Liberty Tuesday after traveling from Bremerhaven, Germany to New York.  The 4,000-passenger vessel will be christened in New York on March 1, then sail to her home port of Port Canaveral, Florida. With a maiden voyage on March 31, the DISNEY FANTASY will sail seven-night cruises to the Caribbean and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
