From the Captain Greybeard Blog:

A spokesperson at Disney Cruise Line’s Florida HQ said the cause of the water “intrusion” was still unknown and claimed it would be wrong to suggest – as some reports in Germany had – that sabotage or vandalism was a factor. However, given the standards of workmanship at the yard, it is almost unthinkable that defective workmanship could be to blame, and if it were, that would have to be an even greater cause for concern.

   This really happened:


obviously not it

Disney Cruise Line’s newbuild, Disney Fantasy, was the victim of significant vandalism while under construction at Meyer Werft, according to German media reports.

Various water valves were allegedly left open on Dec. 9, 2011, causing roughly one million euros in damage to approximately 40 cabins onboard the 128,000-ton vessel.

The damage will not affect the delivery date of the ship. Disney Cruise Line confirmed a float-out scheduled for Jan. 7,2012.
