On September 10, 2020, while speaking at "Bank of America Virtual 2020 Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference", an excerpt from Christine McCarthy (Walt Disney Company's Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer) has confirmed that new Disney cruise ship Disney Wish will not be delivered on time.

"COVID (Coronavirus) has had an impact on lots and lots of businesses and lots and lots of supply chains and the shipyard we utilize for our cruise ships Meyer Werft was impacted and we encountered a delay we are in negotiations and discussions with the shipyard to finalize dates but as soon as we have those will let, well make an announcement when the fifth ship, which is the first of the three to be a delivered, but it is delayed from what we originally anticipated."

The fleet's fifth ship (Disney Wish) was announced at D23 Expo in 2019 (August 23-25). In "D23" (The Official Disney Fan Club) "D" stands for "Disney" and "23" for "1923" (the year Walt Disney was founded). Prior to McCarthy's announcement, the new (Triton-class) liner was scheduled for delivery in 2021-Q4, planned for inauguration on Christmas 2021 and to start regular passenger shipping services in January 2022. In mid-October 2020, Disney Cruise Line announced that the vessel will debut later than expected, starting service in 2022-Q2 (summer).

Note: Like with other affected cruise vessels under construction in Germany, due to the ongoing Coronavirus 2020 crisis, the shipbuilder Meyer Werft closed its shipyard in Papenburg for 6 weeks (suspended operations from July 20 through August 30). The announcement mentioned that to stay afloat, Germany's largest shipbuilding company needs to save ~EUR 1,2 billion (~USD 1,4 B) over the next 5 years.
