On March 3, The Walt Disney Company announced plans to build two additional cruise ships, each showcasing the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling and unparalleled service that only Disney can deliver.
The company has entered into an agreement with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, and the schedule calls for the new ships to be completed in 2021 and 2023. Each of the two cruise ships will weigh approximately 135,000 gross tons.


The two new ships will be 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.


Since first setting sail in 1998, Disney Cruise Line has provided a quintessential family cruise vacation experience that combines the magic of Disney with the thrill of exploring different parts of 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.


The company also 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, the company introduced several firsts for the industry, including a water coaster at sea (AquaDuck) and virtual portholes in interior staterooms (Magical Portholes) that provide real-time 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.
