A towering Disney cruise ship with 11 decks made a return to Kent this morning.
Disney Magic, which spent 15 months in Dover during the height of the pandemic, is once again moored up at the town’s port.
Having become a familiar fixture during 2020 and 2021, the luxury liner was given a send-off from the county last year as it set off around the globe.
But now it has been welcomed back following a seven-day voyage from Barcelona, returning to its familiar spot in the cruise terminal.
The huge vessel – which has a giant Goofy hanging from the stern – is set to draw the eye of those waiting in expected queues at the port this weekend.
It arrived at the port at about 4.30am today.
Large silhouettes of Mickey Mouse are painted on the ship’s red funnels and the boat’s horn blasts out the well-known Pinocchio tune, When You Wish Upon a Star.
When operational, it carries up to 2,700 passengers.
It is registered to the port of Nassau in the Bahamas, and the interior is in Art Deco style.
Disney Magic was the first cruise ship launched by the world famous company in the late 90s.
