It really is like a “wish” come true: Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship arrived home at Port Canaveral for the first time early Monday morning.
Crowds of eager fans gathered at Jetty Park before 5:00 a.m. local time at Port Canaveral’s Jetty Park to witness the arrival of the long-awaited Disney Cruise ship for themselves.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the massive new Disney Cruise ship–the first new cruise ship in the fleet in nearly a decade–arrived at her home port at around 5:00 a.m. Monday morning with hundreds of fans gathered to welcome her.
It was a beautiful sight as the sky was moonlit and cloudy, and lightning flashed in the background. Fans could hear the sound of waves crashing against the pier, and those sounds were temporarily interrupted by a drone flying overhead, presumably waiting for the perfect photo op of the incoming ship.
The ship is the first in the Disney Cruise Line fleet’s Titan Class of ships, and she’s also the first to be LNG-powered (liquefied natural gas). After a series of delays and setbacks, the ship has finally made it home to Port Canaveral, where she’ll stay until her maiden voyage on July 14.
