Plans have been announced to build two additional Disney Cruise Line ships, each of them showcasing the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling and unparalleled service that only Disney can deliver. The new ships are scheduled to be completed in 2021 and 2023. The expansion of our Disney fleet will allow us to create even more magical memories for families at sea and in incredible cruise destinations around the world! Guests step aboard majestic and beautiful ocean liners to enjoy legendary Disney entertainment, exquisite dining, spacious and well-appointed staterooms and magnificent public spaces.
Each new ship will be approximately 135,000 gross tons – slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy – and each is currently planned to include about 1,250 guest staterooms. While design plans, ship names and itineraries are still in development, the Walt Disney Imagineering team is already dreaming up exciting new ways to create the world’s most magical oceangoing adventures.
Disney Cruise Line has been an industry leader in innovation and game-changing creativity. With the launch of the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy in 2011 and 2012, several firsts for the industry were introduced, including a water coaster at sea (AquaDuck) and virtual portholes in interior staterooms (Magical Portholes) that provide realtime views of the sea as well as sightings of animated Disney characters.
More details about the Disney Cruise Line fleet expansion and onboard offerings will be announced at a later date. In the meantime, explore a Disney Cruise through the eyes and imagination of one of its biggest (little) fans.
