The Disney Wish construction continues to steam ahead at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Earlier today, Meyer Weft updated their web cams to show the latest progress of the Disney Wish assembly in Hall 6. In a week, there is a noticeable addition of multiple block sections with potentially the Grand Hall taking shape in the upper left portion of the build.
The Meyer Werft webcam is not a traditional live webcam, but rather an occasional snapshot of the build. So far, there have been 4 updates for the Disney Wish which can be viewed in the gallery below.
The Disney Wish was originally announced for a late 2021 delivery, but due to the pandemic the dates slipped to a spring 2022 delivery with the first sailing slated for Summer 2022. The Disney Wish is the first of three new ships joining the Disney Cruise Line fleet through 2025. All three ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and, at approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
What happened to the webcam image of the Disney Wish on the Meyer Werft website?
My guess is that Disney requested it taken down. Meyer Werft has shown the 3 different webcams for years showing the ship builds in progress. I do not think it is a coincidence that once I started to share the weekly update that it got removed. Considering they haven’t shared much of any details on the new build, I figure they do not want people speculating about features based on what is shown in the lone, weekly, static image.
Thanks Scott, I appreciate your reply. Too bad though, I was really looking forward to watching her come to life. With the lack of other DCL news this was the one positive angle we had. Oh well, she’s in the building and progress continues. I hope they rethink this and get that camera back on soon. Regards.
I’m not optimistic, but I hope the camera comes back online once Disney starts sharing details of the ship. Almost feels like they don’t want anyone to guess what is being built before they announce it. Since they haven’t announced anything of substance that results in us not seeing anything.
