If her home port is Canaveral, why would they christen her in New York?

Raise your hand if you found a hidden Mickey!

BYW, I love the carpet. It's just stunning. I'm in awe of the skill that it took to cut it.

Found one! The ones on the chandelier. Im not great at finding those, that was the only one i could find.

At first i thought the chandelier was a rendering put into the real picture since it wasn't done. WOW. Imagine what it will look like in person!

I'd call that one a decor mickey. There's another one that truly hidden.

I think I found one hidden in the right elevator scroll work.

It's about 3/4 of the way up just on the border between the black and green (right side of black shaft).

Ooh. And there appears to be a TINY Hidden Mickey on either side of that first balcony between the elevators, set in the elevator scroll work just near and below the hand rail.

Did I win???

I am no good at finding hidden Mickeys but I'll be on the Fantasy May 12, so I'll let you know. And I agree, the carpet is stunning!
