Disney Cruise Line Planning THREE new Ships!

Last year  Disney Cruise Line announced that it would build 2 new ships for their fleet.  These ships were scheduled to set sail in 2021 & 2023.  Well… recently they have told the public that they would be adding not two but three new ships, nearly doubling the size of their current fleet.  The additional ship is scheduled to set sail in 2022.  This means that Disney would have a new ship every year for 3 years in a row, beginning in 2021.

“We decided two ships wouldn’t be enough to hold all of the exciting new experiences we have been dreaming up to take family cruise vacations to a whole new level with immersive Disney storytelling, world-class family entertainment, and imaginative innovations that are fantastically fun and uniquely Disney,” Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said.

The three new ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and be the same size – approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned – which is a little larger than the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy.  The ships’ names & design are still in development at this time.

Disney boasts that these new ships will “usher in the next generation of innovative cruise experiences designed especially for families that will transform the art-of-cruising and take guests on adventures in a way never dreamed of before.”

Personally having cruised on all 4 of Disney’s ships, I can say that the Disney Cruise Line experience is nothing short of luxurious.  I have to wonder with these new ships, where will Disney Cruise Line take us to next?  Will the original ships set sail in China, Australia or any number of new destinations.  Maybe one of the original ships will be a part of the Adventures by Disney itineraries in the future?  Will this possibly bring down the price of the Disney Cruise Line experience or just create more hype for this highly sought after cruise experience?  This all remains to be seen.

Stay tuned & I will be sure to pass along any new announcements from Disney Cruise Line.

Disney Cruise Line Announces Exciting, New Enhancements Coming To The Disney Dream

Exciting new experiences await you aboard the Disney Dream after spaces throughout the Disney Cruise Line vessel are transformed this fall.

Headlining the enhancements are two new interactive youth areas, one themed to Star Wars and another to Disney Infinity. Also, a whimsical sweet shop serving handmade gelato and the ever-popular Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will debut after the Disney Dream undergoes dry dock Oct. 4-24, 2015.

DisneyDreamEnhancements-Fall2015

Here’s a glimpse at what’s in store for you:

Star Wars Area Brings Force-filled Fun for Children

At Disney’s Oceaneer Club, kids ages 3-12 will be transported to a far away galaxy with Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a new Force-filled play area inspired by the spacecraft from the legendary saga.

Kids will join the Rebel Alliance in the epic battle of good versus evil by assisting with the navigation of the powerful space vehicle. They can also express their creativity through Star Wars-themed crafts, games and activities. Watch episodes from the new Disney XD animated series, “Star Wars Rebels.” Or, join the rebellion at gaming stations featuring the series’ action-packed adventures.

Plus, a shipboard version of the popular Jedi Training Academy experience invites young Jedi hopefuls to learn lightsaber moves from a Jedi Master. They can then use the Force and face off in a final test against the evil Darth Vader.

High-Tech Disney Infinity Space Adds Adventure for Kids

Also in the Oceaneer Club, a high-tech interactive space based on the Disney Infinity hybrid toy/video game offers more fun for kids.

In the Disney Infinity Toy Box area, children can experience a whole new way of playing together with exciting virtual experiences and immersive activities. Customized, on-screen adventures will bring to life characters and stories from across The Walt Disney Company. Kids will be able to unlock exclusive Disney Cruise Line content that they can continue to enjoy when playing Disney Infinity at home.

It has been accounted at the D 23 expo that you will be able to bring home exclusive Disney Infinity content with your Oceaneer Club band.  This includes a Toy Box edition Disney Dream ship toy, exclusive townspeople as well as other ship related content.  Be prepared to pay $25 to bring home your Oceaneer Club band, since this has been the standard charge for anyone wanting to keep their band.

Specialty Sweet Shop for Families

Venellope’s Sweets & Treats, resembling the whimsical candy land of the Sugar Rush race car game in “Wreck-It-Ralph”, will satisfy cruisers of all ages with handmade gelato and ice cream, an assortment of candy and delectable novelty treats for purchase.  New to Deck 11, the smell of freshly baked waffle cones and candy will linger from the specialty store’s two entrances, inside Cabana’s restaurant and outside by the pool deck.

Magical Makeover Salon for Princesses and Pirates

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, coming to Deck 5 midship, will bring to life the storybook fantasies of young Guests with pixie-dusted and piratical makeovers. This very special salon will offer aspiring princesses and knights ages 3-12 the chance to transform into royalty with the help of a fairy godmother-in-training. On pirate party night this boutique becomes The Pirates League where swashbuckling pirates of all ages will have the opportunity to unleash their inner buccaneer.

Cool and Comfortable Retreat for Adults

Exclusively for adults, Deck 13 forward will include a new water feature, Satellite Falls, a circular splash pool with benches and a gently falling rain curtain that provides cool comfort. Around this upper deck, adult Guests can soak up the sun in loungers or relax in the shade under a canopy.

These enhancements will debut on the 4-Night Bahamian cruise departing Port Canaveral on Oct. 26, 2015.
