Disney Wish Construction Update: Floating Engine Room Unit Float Out – October 24, 2020

An all new video appeared on inselvideo’s YouTube channel today showing the float out of the Disney Wish’s engine room module on October 24, 2020. This is the same engine room block we have seen in previous videos from the Neptun Werft shipyard in Rostock, Germany. According to the inselvideo’s video description, the engine room leaving Rostock and headed to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

Disney Cruise Line has commissioned MEYER WERFT with the construction of three new ships, and the Disney Wish will be delivered in early-2022. 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 a delay in the construction timeline which was confirmed during the recent itinerary announcement, when Disney Cruise Line mentioned the maiden voyage for the Disney Wish is now slated for Summer 2022.

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. Then, a late-June update showing progress, and in another update in August.
