Live Jan 19 @10:30am EST Disney Dream Christening Cermony
For hundreds of years it has been a maritime custom to name a godmother for a new ship. In the past, the godmother was either royalty or an accomplished military or political figure. More recently, godmothers have been actresses or celebrities and in the case of the Disney Wonder, Tinker Bell. A ship’s godmother blesses the vessel before its first official sailing.
The Christening Ceremony for the Disney Cruise Line fleet’s newest ship, the Disney Dream takes place this week. As is the custom, there will be an official godmother who will give the new ship her personal blessing.
Watch the Dream’s Fairy Godmothers and other VIP guests during the live webcast of the Christening Ceremony and cruise at www.disneycruise.com/dream beginning January 19 at 10:30AM EST.
