Disney recently released a video of the Disney Wish, its soon coming cruise ship which is scheduled to set sail in summer 2022.
The video shows new details of the ship’s Grand Hall and a first look at the stunning character statue, at the base of the grand staircase, an iconic Disney princess (Cinderella), whose faith in her dreams has inspired generations to believe in the power of their own. Disney’s post connects the boat’s name, Disney Wish, to Cinderella’s story, where she transforms “wishes into dreams and dreams into reality.”
According to Disney Parks Blog, the Grand Hall’s design was inspired by the beauty of a fairytale castle, and makes a bold welcoming statement, setting the tone for an enchanted family vacation from the moment guests step onboard the Disney Wish. It is an idyllic setting for Cinderella, whose timeless story is the perfect example of magic transforming wishes into dreams and dreams into reality – very fitting for a vessel named the Disney Wish, don’t you think?
The Disney Wish is the first of three new ships joining the Disney Cruise Line fleet through 2025. All three ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and, at approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
