Disney orders seventh cruise ship
Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced plans yesterday at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, USA, to add a seventh ship to Disney Cruise Line’s fleet. Last year, Disney announced plans to build two new ships at Meyer Werft in Germany with scheduled completion dates of 2021 and 2023. The seventh ship will be built at the same shipyard and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
All ship names, designs and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences. The three new ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and be the same size – approximately 135,000GT with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned – which is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
