• Disney unveils new cruise ship with Jennifer Hudson

    2011-01-19

    Disney will be unveiling its first cruise ship in more than 10 years this month - the Disney Dream - and recently commemorated the event with a performance by Jennifer Hudson.

    The singer, who has won several awards for her work in music and film, was chosen because of her history with the company - she began her career as a singer on a Disney cruise ship back in 2003, according to USA Today.

    The naming ceremony took place earlier this week, just a few days before the vessel makes its first voyage out of Port Canaveral in Florida. The 2,500-passenger ship will reportedly make a trip to the Bahamas on its maiden voyage.

    Hudson first appeared in Hollywood when she competed on the popular "American Idol" television show. Although she lost, the singer went on to star in the 2006 film "Dreamgirls," a role that earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She has also won Grammy for her self-titled debut album.

    The Disney Dream is reportedly "the most high-tech cruise ship ever built," featuring animated artwork hanging in the hallways and virtual portholes that show current views of the sea.
