SOUTHAMPTON residents were delighted at the newest cruise ship to appear at the docks.

The Disney Fantasy was in port yesterday (Wednesday) along with an American Dodge police car that was parked in Mayflower Park.

The 130k ton cruise liner is part of the Disney Cruise Line fleet and has been sailing around the world since it's commission in 2012.

It is the sister ship of the Disney Dream and was built by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, beginning its maiden voyage on March 31, 2012.

The ship left the Port of Southampton around 4pm on Wednesday on its journey back to the United States.
