The first season of NBC's Fashion Star has ended...
With a dash of Disney magic and a surprising twist, a helicopter hoisted a 16-foot “champagne bottle” across the bow of the Disney Dream for Jennifer Hudson during a christening ceremony this morning officially welcoming the newest ship to the Disney Cruise Line family. Hudson was serving the traditional role of godmother for the Disney Dream christening. Decisive Media has learned that with this christening, Hudson has come full circle. The Oscar and Grammy Award winner's dreams of stardom began when she was a performer on the Disney Wonder ship in 2003.
Some 3,000 people were gathered at the Disney Dream for the christening ceremony including celebrities, media and members of the public.
The spectacle befit a ship brimming with innovative “wows” – including gallery art that comes alive, the first water coaster aboard a cruise ship, Magical Portholes that provide inside staterooms with a real-time ocean view, a full-blown shipboard fireworks show, personal interaction with animated characters, play floors like gigantic video games, and original Broadway-style stage spectaculars.
In 2011, the Disney Dream will sail three-, four- and five-night itineraries to the Bahamas and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. The Disney Magic will sail seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries and seven-, 10- and 11-night European cruises out of Barcelona during the summer months. The Disney Wonder will sail seven-night Mexican Riviera cruises from the Port of Los Angeles beginning Jan. 23 and seven-night Alaska itineraries from Vancouver, B.C., during the summer months.
