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.

New Spaces on the Disney Dream Ship

On a Disney Cruise there is never a lack of things to do, but with the Disney Dream just sailing from it’s remodel there are even more exciting areas to explore.  This makes me want to take another Disney Cruise in the very near future.  What do you think?

New experiences and fun await guests when they sail on the Disney Dream, which has just returned from a three-week dry dock. Headlining the ship’s enhancements are two new interactive youth areas, one themed to Star Wars and another to Disney Infinity. Also new is the whimsical sweet shop serving handmade gelato and the ever-popular Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutqiue. For adults, a new splash pool and sun deck provides an oasis for relaxing.

Here’s a closer look at what’s in store for Guests of all ages:

In Disney’s Oceaneer Club, young Guests can enjoy two newly themed areas. Kids are transported to a far away galaxy at Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a Force-filled play area inspired by the spacecraft from the legendary saga. In the Disney Infinity area, children can experience a whole new way of playing together with exciting virtual experiences and immersive activities. Customized, on-screen adventures bring to life characters and stories from across The Walt Disney Company.

Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats satisfies the sweet tooth of 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 lingers from the specialty store’s two entrances, inside Cabanas restaurant and outside by the pool deck.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on Deck 5 midship brings to life the storybook fantasies of young Guests with pixie-dusted and piratical makeovers. This very special salon offers aspiring princesses and knights ages three to 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.

Exclusively for adults, Deck 13 forward includes 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.

Disney_Dream_New_Spaces-02

Imagine taking the young Star Wars fans in your house on a cruise where they can play in the Star Wars kids club during the day & watch the new Star Wars movie in the Walt Disney Theater at night.  Disney Cruise ships run current, popular Disney films around the clock in their 2 theaters.  Some are even in 3D & if you are lucky you will get to see a Prem-Ear movie before it releases anywhere else. *Movies are shown in the theaters for a limited time & there is never any guarantee which movies will be shown on specific dates.

  • “Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends,” a family-friendly interactive deck party featuring the famous royal sisters of Arendelle and their fun-loving Nordic companions.

on the Disney Magic this summer, friends from “Frozen” will make their stage show debut at sea in the Walt Disney Theatre aboard the Disney Magic. In the Disney Cruise Line original production, “Disney Dreams … An Enchanted Classic,” Anna, Elsa and Olaf join the line up of beloved Disney characters who together teach a young girl the power of her dreams.

Guests who travel aboard the Disney Magic to Norway will have the opportunity to join exciting new Port Adventures that bring the fairytale setting of Arendelle to life. One signature adventure ashore in Ålesund, Norway, created exclusively for Disney Cruise Line, will immerse Guests in the splendor and charm of Norway, with the help of Anna and Elsa, in an enchanting storybook village.

On the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy this summer, Olaf will be giving warm hugs when he joins Anna and Elsa on their royal tour of the Disney Cruise Line ships. Guests should check their Personal Navigator on the first day of their cruise for special Meet & Greet ticket distribution locations.
