On March 3, 2016, Disney Cruise Line announced they will launch two new ships in 2021 & 2023!
This month we are cyber sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line! What better way to launch the theme than with Disney’s own announcement they’ll be launching two brand new ships in coming years?
That’s right! The leader in family cruising is growing its award-winning fleet. The company has entered into agreement with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, the same builders who created the “uniquely fun and distinctly Disney” DREAM and FANTASY. The new ships are scheduled to be completed in 2021 and 2023 and, of course, will showcase the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling, and unparalleled service that Disney Cruise Line is known for.
We pride ourselves on the unforgettable vacation experiences we deliver to our guests each and every day, and 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,” said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company.
Each new ship will be slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney DREAM and Disney FANTASY, weighing in at approximately 135,000 gross tons and featuring about 1,250 Guest staterooms. While designs are still in planning stages and ship names have yet to be determined, the Walt Disney Imagineering team is busy dreaming up exciting new ways for travelers to experience the world’s most magical oceangoing adventures.
