We don’t have a name for the ships yet, or specific design and itinerary information, but here’s what we do know:
In keeping with the distinct Disney Cruise Line style, the new ships will embody the elegance and romance of the golden age of ocean cruising with unique touches all their own. The three new vessels will offer more innovation, new technologies, spectacular entertainment and more Disney stories and characters than ever before. Ingenuity and innovation from stem to stern will amaze and delight Disney Cruise Line guests of all ages.
On our new ships, we will bring Disney’s iconic stories and franchises to life in thrilling and surprising ways, building on the creativity we’ve introduced across our existing fleet. Just over the past several years we have added innovations such as Marvel and Star Wars themed spaces in our kids’ clubs…dazzling stage shows like “Beauty and the Beast” that are unrivaled in their originality and visual presentation…and an entirely new genre of dining experience combining live entertainment, storytelling and interactive moments at our Tiana’s Place and Rapunzel’s Royal Table restaurants.
At 140,000 gross tons, the new ships will be larger than the Dream and Fantasy (both weigh in at 128,000 tons; for comparison, the Magic is 83,000 tons and the Wonder is 85,000 tons). The three new ships will also use liquefied natural gas (LNG) for power, which is one of the cleanest-burning fuels available today.
What are your thougts – are you excited about these new additions to the fleet?
