When Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, Disney Wish, sets sail next summer, the fifth ship in the fleet will be full of firsts.
Take for example Aqua Mouse, the first Disney attraction at sea, a 760-ft. water ride around the upper deck of the ship. Or the first ever two storey Royal Suites each featuring a grand spiral staircase or a Frozen-themed dining adventure where families can watch characters like Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf while enjoying worldly cuisine infused with Nordic influences.
Kids three to 13 will be able to slide into the kid’s club — Disney’s Oceaneer Club — through a secret entrance to access the Marvel Super Hero Academy and train to be the next generation of super heroes with the likes of SpiderMan, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp.
“With the Disney Wish, we’re continuing our tradition of delivering the most magical and relaxing
vacations at sea, combining legendary service and entertainment with imaginative storytelling and all the care you expect from a Disney vacation,” said Josh D’Amaro, chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. “Our newest ship will celebrate everything that families love about sailing with us, from the incredible dining experiences and character interactions, to dazzling shows and the crew’s thoughtful attention to detail. We can’t wait to welcome our guests aboard the Disney Wish as we expand the reach of our world-class fleet.”
The new ship will make its maiden voyage on June 9 with a five-night cruise to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. Bookings open up on May 27.
The ship has many memorable features like a tranquil adults only area with an infinity pool, a Marvel cinematic dining adventure with the Avengers, Broadway-style shows like a re-imagined take on the classic Aladdin and a Walt Disney Imagineering Lab where kids can discover the secrets of world-renowned Disney imagineers with hands-on activities and inventive experiments.
From a wishing star adorning the main chandelier to a statue of Cinderella, the ship has enchanting touches and weaves elements of story telling throughout.
In total there are 1,254 staterooms — includes 53 concierge staterooms and 23 concierge suites — 900 of which are connecting.
