Mickey Mouse makes his mark

Disney Cruise Lines marked its first trip to Bermuda with a plaque and key ceremony.

The Disney Magic stayed in Dockyard on last Saturday night, with 2,399 guests and 1,024 crew on board, after its arrival from New York City.

It was the first of five calls to the island scheduled for the rest of 2018.

Walter Roban, the transport minister, and West End Development Corporation representative Carmen Tucker attended the ceremony and festivities. Mr Roban said of the weekend visit: “I am delighted that after many years of discussion with Disney Cruise Line, that Disney was finally able to come to our shores.

“It is an honour to welcome Captain Fabian, Disney Cruise Line executives, and the Disney Magic crew and passengers.”

A celebration event at Heritage Wharf included a Marine and Ports tug salute, Gombey performances and a greeting from Bermuda Tourism Authority ambassadors.
