Disney Wish (2022)

Disney Wish, hull number s.705, will be built at Meyer Wreft in Germany with delivery originally slated for late 2021 with sailings embarking in the early part of 2022, but due to the pandemic, the dates slipped to a spring 2022 delivery with the maiden voyage scheduled for June 9, 2022. Disney Cruise Line revealed the many details planned for the launch of the Disney Wish during the Once Upon a Disney Wish grand reveal prevention on April 29, 2021.

The Disney Wish, the fifth ship in the Disney Cruise fleet, will showcase the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling and unparalleled service that only Disney can deliver. The ship will be powered by liquified natural gas, or LNG, one of the cleanest-burning fuels available. At approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,254 guest staterooms for a maximum 4000 passengers, the ship will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

On April 8, 2021, Captain Minnie was announced as the centerpiece of the Disney Wish’s bow.

The new builds were announced by Bob Iger during the 2016 Walt Disney Company Annual Meeting of Shareholders. During a June 2018 Port Canaveral meeting, it was mentioned a third Disney Cruise ship would homeport at Port Canaveral beginning January 2022. Then, during the 2019 D23 Expo, Bob Chapek announced the ship will be named the Disney Wish.

Triton Class confirmed as the project name for Disney Cruise Line’s LNG-Powered new builds via drawings for Port Canaveral’s cruise terminal 10 renovations.
