June 10, 2022 - Yesterday, Papenburg-based MEYER WERFT handed over the "Disney Wish" to Disney Cruise Line. The Disney Wish is the third ship that the shipyard has built for the shipping subsidiary of the US media group Disney. Disney Cruise Line has ordered two more cruise ships from MEYER.
With the Disney Wish, the Disney fleet grows to five ships. The imaginatively designed family ships woo Disney fans of all ages who are young at heart. In all areas of the ships, small and large figures are reminiscent of characters from Disney films. But families are not the only focus of the cruise line, which was founded in 1998: there are "adults-exclusive" restaurants for adults who are looking for peace and quiet. Disney ships sail in the Caribbean, North, South and Central America, Hawaii and Europe.

Aboard Disney Wish, families will find interactive restaurant and lounge areas, such as Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure, and Worlds of Marvel, the first Marvel Cinematic Dining Adventure. "AquaMouse" is the latest Disney attraction at sea: guests immerse themselves in the world of Mickey Mouse in the AquaMouse. AquaMouse is a 230 meter long water ride with show scenes, lighting and special effects. Guests slide down winding tubes high above the upper decks.

Last but not least, Disney Cruise Line thinks about environmental protection. The ship, measured at around 144.000 GT, uses liquefied natural gas (LNG) for propulsion. LNG is considered to be the cleanest of the fuels currently available. Disney Wish is 341 meters long and 39 meters wide. The shipyard gives the total number of cabins as 1.254.
