During this morning’s annual meeting of shareholders, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger reminded investors that the Disney Cruise Line was in the process of building three new ships to join their fleet. Additionally, he showed them the first rendering of what one of these ships would look like. Now the Cruise Line has released that image publically:
The Disney Cruise Line fleet has the most beautiful ships at sea and the three newest vessels setting sail in 2021, 2022 and 2023 will be no exception. This first, early rendering depicts the magnificent exterior of the newest Disney ships that will elevate family cruise vacations to a whole new level.
In keeping with the distinct Disney Cruise Line style, the new ships will embody the elegance and romance of the golden age of ocean cruising with unique touches all their own. The new vessels will offer more innovation, new technologies, spectacular entertainment and more Disney stories and characters than ever before.
Ingenuity and innovation from stem to stern will amaze and delight Disney Cruise Line guests of all ages. Each new ship will be approximately 140,000 gross tons and each is currently planned to include about 1,250 guest staterooms.
For reference, here is the concept art, showing that these new ships will be even larger than the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy (note: the image was before the third new ship was announced):
