This part of the trip was probably my favorite! Not only did I get to see New York for the second time in my life, but we also strengthened some great friendships during the time in NY.
Because it was the christening of the Disney Fantasy while she was in New York, all the guests had to spend that night off the ship, and were treated to a stay in the Times Square Marriot Hotel, and complimentary entrance to The Lion King show on Broadway.
This was my friend’s first time in the big city, so it was quite fun to show him all the sight seeing attractions, and for some, it was my first time too.
I absolutely love this city, and wish I could go there once again.
Since we were not on the ship the night she was christened, we watched it on television in the hotel room and then the next morning on the local news. The excitement about having a Disney ship in the New York harbour could be felt in the atmosphere all through the city, I mean, the Disney Fantasy did make one hell of an entrance when she entered port, playing “New York New York” on the ship’s horn, and one could hear it echo throughout the entire Manhattan!
Here are some pictures of those very special few days in New York:
