The new Disney Fantasy ship from Disney Cruise Line arrived at Port Canaveral, Fla. this morning, but just a few days ago it arrived in New York for an onboard christening ceremony. While there, the top decks of the Fantasy provided those who were lucky enough to be on board with unique views of the nearby Manhattan skyline.
The most special of these views was available to those who were willing to get a bit wet, hopping a ride on the AquaDuck water coaster. Vast ocean sights are normally visible from within its transparent enclosed slide while at sea, but while docked in New York, the AquaDuck provided a cityscape view like no other, seen in the video below.

And as the Disney Fantasy left New York a few days ago, the parting view of Manhattan was captured in a time-lapse video as it sailed down the Hudson River, beginning the journey to her home port in Florida.

The Disney Fantasy will set sail on her maiden voyage on March 31, 2012, preceded by a few inaugural preview cruises.
We’ll be aboard one of those preview cruises, so check back to Inside the Magic at the end of the month for full coverage of the newest Disney Cruise Line ship! You can also follow along as we post videos from the ship on our Disney Fantasy YouTube Playlist.
