Disney Wish is the 5th ship to join the DCL-Disney Cruise Line's fleet, with sailing expected to commence in summer 2022 from Port Canaveral on Florida's East Coast.

The first voyage is slated for June 9, 2022, with 3- and 4-night sailings to Bahamas and Castaway Cay. Bookings open on May 27.

From "Star Wars" and Marvel superheroes' dining experiences to a waterslide referred to as a "Disney attraction at sea," the newbuild is filled with experiences.

The Recent Disney virtual event started with 30-minute video production with appearances by characters like Olaf, Captain Minnie, Captain Mickey, and a fairy godmother who beamed around DCL's Cruise Director Ashley Long to different areas of the liner.

  • The Upper Deck: The 760-foot Aqua Mouse waterslide
  • For the kids: The Oceaneer Club (for children ages 3 to 12), which has not been utilized on any of Disney's previous 4 ships
  • The Walt Disney Theater inspired by a Magical Forest - 3 shows will take place in the theater, but only one was unveiled: "Disney's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular" 
  • For the adults: 'Star Wars,' superheroes, and more (the new "Star Wars"-themed lounge is called the “Hyperspace Lounge”)
  • Disney Wish staterooms include some that are 2 stories or above the bridge
  • Let's eat: Disney Wish dining options - Disney Wish will have 3 new restaurants: Arendelle (with a Frozen Dining Experience; 1923 (named after the year Walt Disney Studios opened); and the third one was initially mentioned as “top secret,” but was revealed as The World of Marvel.

All 4 previous cruise ships began their departures from Port Canaveral FL, with destinations in the Bahamas, including DCL’s private island, Castaway Cay.

Disney Wish will be in DCL's “Triton Class” and will feature 1250 staterooms and 4000 passengers, just like Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, but at 144,000 GT (~15,000 GT larger).

One of the major improvements is that Wish will be the first LNG-powered Disney ship.

Disney Wish is the first of 3 newbuild (Triton-Class) units that will join DCL's fleet by 2025.
