This new ship will be completed and go into service in 2022 and be built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. With this new ship announcement, new Disney ships will now enter service in 2021, 2022, and 2023.
All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences. The three new ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and be the same size – approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned – which is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
With a legacy of revolutionary design, Disney Cruise Line’s new ships will usher in the next generation of innovative cruise experiences designed especially for families that will transform the art-of-cruising and take guests on adventures in a way never dreamed of before
Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, gave the following statement: “We decided two ships wouldn’t be enough to hold all of the exciting new experiences we have been dreaming up to take family cruise vacations to a whole new level with immersive Disney storytelling, world-class family entertainment, and imaginative innovations that are fantastically fun and uniquely Disney.”
With the addition of these three new cruise ships, Disney Cruise Line will have a total of seven ships in their fleet.
