Castle at Sea: Disney’s New Cruise Ship

Have you ever been to Disney World at sea?

Meet Disney Wish, the newest ship from the Disney Cruise Line. The 1,119-foot (341-meter) long ship is the first Disney vessel powered by LNG, one of the cleanest fuels available.

The ship features the AquaMouse, a water ride that spans 760 feet (232 meters) around the upper decks. Complete with audio, video, lighting, and special effects, the ride will take you into the world of Mickey Mouse cartoons. Along the way, you’ll encounter lots of sea creatures and some familiar Disney faces.

Beneath the AquaMouse are six pools of various sizes and depths, surrounded by lounge chairs, across tiered decks for families, who can also enjoy Disney movies, TV shows, live sports, and more on a large poolside LED screen.

As for adults, there’s the Quiet Cove with its infinity pool, an adults-only refuge set away from the family areas.

At the heart of the ship is the Grand Hall, a three-story atrium inspired by Cinderella Castle. A statue of Cinderella, whose story is about dreaming and wishing, stands at the base of the staircase. In the center of the ceiling hangs an oversized chandelier crowned with a wishing star.

The ship showcases many other classic characters, such as Olaf, Iron Man, and Black Panther. Kids can suit up as and interact with their favorite superheroes, design and virtually ride their own roller coasters, read stories with Belle, and watch robots.

In the Walt Disney Theatre, Broadway-style shows are hosted every day, and the orchestra plays modern dance music.

The ship is home to a family restaurant called Arendelle. While dining, you’ll be treated to live musical performances by beloved characters like Anna and Elsa. Special effects of wonder and magic will transport you to the world of Frozen.

Most of the adults-only restaurants and lounges are inspired by Beauty and the Beast, including Enchanté, inspired by the candelabra Lumière, The Rose, and Palo Steakhouse, whose elegant setting is inspired by the clock Cogsworth.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, take a seat at Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, an adults-only bar styled as the First Light, where you can enjoy a drink while traveling through the galaxy.

The ship can accommodate 4,000 passengers in its 1,254 staterooms, most of which come with an ocean view. Of that total, 877 (70%) staterooms offer a verandah, and some even offer the option to share verandahs with adjoining rooms.

The ship is currently being built in a German shipyard. It’ll embark on its five-night maiden voyage on June 9, 2022, from Florida to the Bahamas, including a stop at Disney’s private island.
