Disney Cruise Line Buys Unfinished Global Dream Ship, Aims to Sail in 2025

Disney Cruise Line is adding another ship to its fleet. The unfinished and massive Global Dream ship has been purchased by Disney in an effort to expand its sailing offerings worldwide.

Some initial concept art was included in the announcement.

Disney says they plan to reimagine the ship, as well as rename it, before setting sail in 2025.

Upon completion, the new ship will be the largest in Disney Cruise Line’s fleet. Guest capacity is expected to be around 6,000, which is a big increase over the roughly 4,000 guests sailing on the Disney Wish, Dream and Fantasy.

Disney also noted the new ship will be based outside the United States and will “bring the magic of a Disney Cruise Line vacation to new global destinations.”

This reportedly doesn’t change Disney’s current plans to expand the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Currently, they’re building the Disney Treasure and have plans for a third Triton Class ship (alongside the Wish and Treasure) set to debut in a couple years.

Financially, there’s no question Disney will save money by purchasing the Global Dream versus building a new ship. However, they’ll have to spend quite a bit to get the new ship up to the Disney standard found on Disney Cruise Line.

Disney says they will announce more details about the new ship in the near future.
