An all new video appeared on the Unimedien YouTube channel last week showing the conveyance of the Disney Wish’s floating engine room unit (FERU) on October 30, 2020 through the Kiel Canal. This is the same engine room block we have seen in previous videos from the Neptun Werft shipyard in Rostock, Germany.
Voyage History Update – October 30, 2020
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.
The video has been posted here out of order as we’ve already watched the November 4th arrival of the Disney Wish FERU at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany.
