Disney Cruise Line isn’t the largest cruise line or most popular but they sure do know how to design good vessels not just for kids but for adults too. Disney’s next cruise ship will be even bigger and an evolution of the current ships in the fleet.
New Class Disney Cruise Ships
There is three new class Disney cruise ships on order and the first shiny new rendering has been released! A total of three new ships have been ordered so far, two orders were announced in 2016 and news of the third in July 2017. The ships will be built by the popular Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany and enter service in 2021, 2022 and 2023. They evolve Disney at sea with new features and experiences. Before we get into some further statistics let’s take a look at the rendering below.
As you can see Disney’s next cruise ship will be very similar in design to the current Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy which are both 130,000 gross tons with a passenger capacity of 4,000 guests. The new ships which have not yet been named will be 140,000 gross tons and feature 1,250 passenger staterooms.
Disney Cruise Line stated “the new ships will embody the elegance and romance of the golden age of ocean cruising with unique touches all their own. The new vessels will offer more innovation, new technologies, spectacular entertainment and more Disney stories and characters than ever before.” So through 2021 which is when the first ship is completed expect further specific details including onboard features, cruise itinerary and more. We’ll also be keeping Cruise Hive readers updated throughout the build process of the most advanced and innovative Disney ships ever built.
