Originally announced at the 2016 Walt Disney Company Annual Shareholders meeting, Bob Iger told investors that two new ships would be joining the Disney Cruise Line fleet. It turns out that they decided to up the ante by adding a 3rd new cruise ship to the existing fleet, bringing the number of Disney Cruise Line vessels to 7!
The three new ships are being built at Meyer Wreft Shipyard in Germany and are scheduled to be delivered in 2021, 2022 and the third ship should be on target for a 2023 sailing date. The new ships, including the third new ship, announced at the 2017 D23 Expo will be 135,000 gross tons which is slightly larger than the Disney Magic and Disney Fantasy.
Details including the name of the ship, itinerary and entertainment on board will be released at a later date.
