The Disney Wish is the latest ship for Disney Cruise Line, set to sail from summer 2022. It is the first of three new ships joining the fleet through 2025.
The design concept for the Disney Wish is inspired by enchantment, with Walt Disney Imagineers embedding storytelling throughout the cruise experience.
The ship has a magical new look, based on stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. It continues the Disney Cruise Line tradition of an elegant exterior in the symbolic colours of Mickey Mouse.
Disney Wish sets sail in summer 2022
The Disney Wish will feature Captain Minnie Mouse on the bow for the first time, as well as Tangled‘s Rapunzel and Pascal on the stern.
The ship’s grand hall is an elegant space with a fairytale castle-inspired design and trails of pixie dust climbing three-storey columns. The chandelier is a swirling spiral of crystal gems crowned with a wishing star.
At the base of the grand hall’s staircase, Cinderella will feature in the form of a bronze statue, surrounded by glistening railings, embellished carpeting and intricate metalwork.
The grand hall will serve as an enchanted gateway to the Disney Wish’s offerings, which range from fairytale worlds and heroic challenges to exciting adventures and galactic showdowns.
