…and that is exactly what Disney has done.
Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek revealed that Disney’s new ship will be called the Disney Wish. The newbuild is set for delivery in late 2021 and is expected to set sail beginning in January 2022.
“There couldn’t be a better name for our incredible new ship because making wishes come true is part of the Disney DNA and is at the heart of so many of our cherished stories,” Chapek said.
Take a first look at the new ship.
Stern characters – a beloved hallmark of Disney Cruise Line vessels – have been a tradition of the Disney fleet since the beginning and reflect the theme of each ship. For the Disney Wish, the ship’s stern will feature Rapunzel.
“Each Disney Cruise Line ship is unique, with a name that embodies the excitement of sailing with Disney and the power of our stories. The new ships will have the experiences our guest’s love, as well as all-new magic,” Chapek added.
The Disney Wish is part a new three-ship class that will be powered by liquefied natural gas and, at approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
I have been to Disney many times but so far I have not sailed on a Disney Ship.
Disney always seems to create that bit of magic.
Have you been on one? How does the experience compare to the parks? I would love to hear from you.
