Disney Wish Construction Update: August 2020

An all new video appeared on inselvideo’s YouTube channel today showing the continued progress on what is being reported as the Disney Wish’s engine room module at the Neptun Werft shipyard in Rostock, Germany. According to the inselvideo’s video description, the engine room is built at this particular shipyard.

Disney remains silent when it comes to the Disney Wish during the pandemic. However, this is unfortunate because I think we could all use something to look forward to in a few years.

Disney Cruise Line has commissioned MEYER WERFT with the construction of three new ships, and the Disney Wish will be delivered in late-2021. The Disney Wish will be the first vessel in the Disney fleet to feature an eco-friendly LNG drive system. Due to the pandemic, there is likely to be a delay in the construction timeline as Meyer Werft recently announced an extended break from the typical summer shutdown.

MEYER WERFT built two cruise ships for Disney Cruise Line in 2010 and 2011, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. They became the largest ocean liners ever built in Germany at the time of their completion. And the three vessels in the Triton Class will be even bigger. The 135,000 GT Disney Wish will have 1250 guest cabins.

In late-March, inselvideo shared video of the first blocks of the Disney Wish arriving at the shipyard followed by a late-June update showing progress since the spring arrival.
