Not much has been shared since Disney announced last year that they were expanding the Disney Cruise Line with three new ships but we recently got a few more tidbits and a look at what we can expect when the three newest vessels set sail in 2021, 2022 and 2023.
The ships will continue with the classic vintage feel inspired by luxury liners of days gone by meant to “embody the elegance and romance of the golden age of ocean cruising.” Of course, there can be the expected innovations, technologies, and new entertainment that are trademark for the Disney Cruise Line brand. Below is some additional information courtesy of Disney.
On our new ships, we will bring Disney’s iconic stories and franchises to life in thrilling and surprising ways, building on the creativity we’ve introduced across our existing fleet. Just over the past several years we have added innovations such as Marvel and Star Wars themed spaces in our kids’ clubs…dazzling stage shows like “Beauty and the Beast” that are unrivaled in their originality and visual presentation…and an entirely new genre of dining experience combining live entertainment, storytelling and interactive moments at our Tiana’s Place and Rapunzel’s Royal Table restaurants.
Each new ship will be approximately 140,000 gross tons – slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy – and each is currently planned to include about 1,250 guest staterooms. While design plans, ship names and itineraries are still in development, we are already dreaming up exciting new ways to create the world’s most magical oceangoing adventures.
These new vessels will be powered by one of the cleanest-burning fuels available, liquefied natural gas, or LNG.
