Port Canaveral Will I lome for Disney Cruise Ship

Disney Cruise Lines and the Canaveral Port Authority announced a joint agreement making Port Canaveral the home base for Disney Cruise Lines' first ship. The agreement, which received full approval from the Port Commissioners, provides for a new terminal to be built for the exclusive use of Disney Cruise Lines, with construction beginning as early as April 1996.

"Our decision to sail from Port Canaveral demonstrates our confidence in its continued growth and development as a major cruise port," said Art Rodney, president of Disney Cruise Lines. "We look forward to working with the Port Authority, and to the day our first ships departs on its maiden voyage from Port Canaveral." Malcolm McLouth, chairman of the Canaveral Port Authority, said, "We are delighted that Disney Cruise Lines has selected us. Disney's commitment to our port adds tremendous prestige to our continuing efforts to increase the importance and desirability of Port Canaveral." Disney Cruise Lines plans to begin sailing in January 1998, offering a one-week vacation which includes a three- or four-day cruise with the balance of the week at the Walt Disney World Resort. Ports of call will include a Disney private island, where guests can enjoy a day-long excursion.

Disney Cruise Lines has named Fincantieri of Trieste, Italy, to build its two new mega cruise ships. At 85,000 tons each, the ships will be larger than any cruise ship currently in operation and will accommodate 2,400 passengers.
