Previewing the New Disney Wish

Disney Cruise Line is preparing for the delivery of its fifth ship, the Disney Wish, set to be the first in its new Triton class. The ship is expected to begin cruising in summer 2022, with up to 4,000 passengers on board. The cruise line hasn’t released all the details yet, but here’s a preview of what we’ve heard about the new addition to this popular fleet.

First, how the ship will move is a sign of the times. In keeping with the trend toward more eco-friendly propulsion systems, the Disney Wish will be the first in its fleet to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) for power.

The Disney Wish will showcase another important design trend: the move to fewer inside (that is, windowless) cabins. About 90% of Disney Wish cabins will have a view to the outside; just 10% will be inside cabins. Plus, about 70% of the outside cabins will have private verandahs.

Disney Wish cabins are being designed with families in mind, with features like extra storage space. While we haven’t seen the actual layouts yet, Disney Cruises says family cabins will provide the feeling of separate spaces where kids and parents can relax.

Disney Concierge Level cabins are popular, and the Disney Wish will have more than other Disney ships. Concierge Level cabins come with some special services and amenities, including access to a private lounge and sundeck, exclusive onboard activities, earlier booking dates for excursions, and more.

The theme of the Disney Wish is “enchantment,” and the planned entertainment sounds enchanting indeed. To begin with, passengers will be greeted by Cinderella in a sparkling, three-story Grand Hall. Dining experiences will include a dinner theater inspired by “Frozen” – featuring Elsa, Anna, Olaf and other beloved characters – and another inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where guests will become part of an adventure alongside characters from The Avengers.

Superheroes and classic fairy tale characters are also sure to feature in the ship’s kids club activities. The ship will have spaces just for adults, too – for example, a Star Wars-themed cocktail bar, with views of storied planets, like Tatooine, through the windows.

More entertainment plans include three Broadway-style shows, two theaters with first-run movies, and fireworks displays at sea.

The Disney Wish will initially sail to the Bahamas, with stops at Nassau and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. To make your reservation to sail on this enchanting new ship, talk with Anita, your professional travel advisor.
