Mariah Carey Becomes Fairy Godmother of Disney’s Fantasy Cruise Ship
Mariah Carey is now going by a different name these days… especially if you’re sitting on board the new Walt Disney cruise ship, Fantasy. The singing diva has been proclaimed the “Fairy Godmother” of the Fantasy when the unveiling of the breathtaking ship happened late last week (Friday, March 2).
Carey stood along side Disney CEO Bob Iger, Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs, and of course, Mickey Mouse, as she spoke to those aboard the ship during the special ceremony held in New York City.
“I am so excited to be here,” Carey gushed after being escorted down the staircase by Mickey. “Thank you for inviting me to join this amazing celebration. It means a lot to me to be here to christen the Disney Fantasy.”
As they got ready for the big countdown and toast to make it official, Carey introduced her husband, Nick Cannon, who was also part of the celebrating, as he hung with Mickey’s main squeeze, Minnie Mouse.
After the countdown and the breaking of the bottle, it was Carey’s honor to make the big announcement. “I christen this ship!” she beamed, as confetti fell from the top of the ship ceiling. “May God bless this ship and all who sails on her!”
