The debut of Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship has officially been delayed. The Disney Wish, the fifth ship in Disney Cruise Line’s fleet, was supposed to have its maiden voyage in early 2022. That date has been postponed until Summer 2022 due to construction delays caused by the pandemic.
Disney previously announced that the Disney Wish would see some sort of delay, but this is the first time they’ve provided a new window for the maiden voyage. Their latest release discussed the delay and reminded that the ship will be the largest in Disney Cruise Line’s fleet at 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms.
Specific details on the Disney Wish have been sparse. We know the ship will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy, and we know Rapunzel and Pascal will grace the stern. Beyond that, Disney hasn’t released any information on the dining locations, amenities or the differences that will separate the new Triton class of ships versus the Dream class of ships.
An official maiden voyage date and more details on the Disney Wish should be released in the near future.
