    Disney Cruise Line's newest addition, the Disney Fantasy has now left the Port of Bremerhaven to begin her adventure, crossing the Atlantic Ocean to New York.

    The people of Bremerhaven said their goodbyes to the Fantasy, with the dock lined with people standing in the cold, waving lighted torches and cheering.

    As the Fantasy got underway, the city had a wonderful fireworks display.

    On day two of the Disney Fantasy's transatlantic crossing, she sailed through the English Channel, past the white cliffs of Dover as she sailed through the channel towards the Atlantic.

    The Disney Fantasy has travelled over 424 nautical miles since leaving Bremerhaven, Germany, only about another 2,830 nautical miles to go until she reaches New York :)

    Next stop – Ponta Delgada, Azores.

    There is also a video journal of the cruise to New York being posted on the Disney Cruise Line Youtube channel hosted by two of DCL's cruise directors, Ray and Brent. Here's Episode one:

    Brent still owes me that Disney Cruise Line belt buckle that they wear on their uniforms. Gotta speak to that boy!

    Tom :)macwave:... never take "no" for an answer!)

    Yep, we sure missed seeing him on the Dream. :yes:
    Brent was so sympathetic with my DW and I when we had just received the news of my DW`s Dad`s passing when we were just pulling out of Castaway Cay on the last night of our cruise on the Magic a few years ago.
    This is something that I will never forget. :hug2:

    The Disney Fantasy is almost at New York.

    She is due to arrive early on February 28th and will pass by the Statue of LIberty around 7-7:30am eastern time.

    If you want to keep an eye out for her you can check out Harbour Web Cam

    Thanks for the webcam link Wendy! I'll be sure to watch for her tomorrow morning.

    When I tried it out just now though, I found I had to hit the pause button the the webcam stream and then hit the "play" button before it would actually work. Just FYI for anyone else who might have that problem.

    Tom :)macwave:... why, it's just like being there! Not!)

    It was OK for me :unsure: I just tried it again and there is a huge cruise ship docked. It's certainly a very busy harbour :yes:

    According to the map below the video feed, that appears to be the "Explorer of the Seas". Took me a while to find it.
    You're right, it's a very busy harbor! :yes:

    I just hope the Fantasy docks in relatively the same place. :fingers:

    Tom :)macwave:... we'll find out tomorrow!)
