Disney's newest ship, the Fantasy, was christened March 2 by its fairy godmother, Grammy Award-winning Mariah Carey, among a handful of celebrities who welcomed Disney's fourth family-friendly ship on the Hudson River in New York.

The Disney Fantasy was christened last night, March 2, alongside the ship's fairy godmother, Grammy Award-winning Mariah Carey, the official emcee Neil Patrick Harris, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, Tony Award-winning actress Heather Headley, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

We got a sneak peak of the state-of-the-art ship before the ceremony.

In the inner rooms (only 16 percent of the ship's entire cabin of 1,250), a porthole "window" plays a live feed of the waters filmed directly from on the ship.
