Disney's newest cruise ship, Disney Dream, has emerged from a German shipyard in Papenburg into a harbor for final stages of construction and testing.
The ship is the largest ever built in Germany.
The 1,115-foot-long ship, which emerged from the Meyer Werft shipyard on Saturday, has 14 decks and can hold 4,000 passengers. It's scheduled to depart Germany in early November along the River Ems headed to a port in Holland. Its launching is scheduled for Jan. 26, 2011, from Port Canaveral, Fla. The ship's regular itinerary will be between Florida and the Bahamas.
The Dream is the first of two crafts being built in Germany for the U.S.-based Disney Cruise Line. The other Disney ship, the Fantasy, will debut in 2012. Disney currently operates two other cruise ships, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder.
The Dream's features include the AquaDuck, a water coaster wrapped around the perimeter of its top deck; virtual portholes that offer live views of the sea and sky from video cameras mounted around the ship; and a series of lounges for all ages.
