Disney Cruise Line Commemorates Titanic Disaster by Launching the Disney Fantasy

DCL President Karl Holz atop the Disney DreamYesterday’s big news for Disney Cruise Line was offering up the date for the maiden voyage of their fourth ship, the Disney Fantasy. Announced to be setting sail on April 7, 2012, bookings will begin to open up to the public this week. What wasn’t widely announced, however, were the details offered during a series of webinars aimed at Disney Travel Agents to update them on the Disney Cruise Line fleet and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. It was during the pre-recorded presentation that another Disney Fantasy maiden voyage was given — that of April 14, 2012, a day that would live in infamy. Not so much for the launch of the new ship, but the fact that it would have been 100 years earlier to the day that the billed-as-unsinkable RMS Titanic met its tragic fate during its own maiden voyage. Apparently the correlation may have gone unnoticed when the date was initially set and it appears DCL has since decided to move the date up by a week. It’s unclear when the presentation was recorded, but the press release may have been issued prior to the presentation (which promised to reveal new information to the travel agents) so that the original date didn’t get any press.
