    Disney Fantasy hammered by Hurricane Sandy

    Disney Cruise Line says its newest ship, the 4,000-passenger Disney Fantasy, sustained minor damage as a result of rough seas churned by Hurricane Sandy.

    Videos have surfaced of the ship rocking and rolling off Port Canaveral late Friday, including an iReport on CNN.

    The video was recorded by a Tennessee optometrist, identified as tneyedoc2020, who said the images, which include a pool overflowing and furniture moving, did not do justice to what passengers experienced that night, according to a CNN producer's note.

    But Disney is downplaying the incident. Spokeswoman Rebecca Peddie tells USA TODAY the damage involved only some "cracked windows and broken furniture that have been addressed."

    The Disney Fantasy embarked Saturday on a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise.

    Meanwhile, a call at Castaway Cay by sister ship Disney Dream was postponed a day so that crews can clear away debris left by the storm, Peddie says. The private Bahamas island is Disney's most popular port of call.
