Disney Cruise Line is proud to announce plans to build two additional cruise ships, each of them showcasing the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling and unparalleled service that only Disney can deliver.
The new ships, each approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms, will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. These new vessels will be built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, and be completed in 2021 and 2023.
While design plans, ship names and itineraries are still in development, the Walt Disney Imagineering team is already dreaming up exciting new ways to create the world’s most magical oceangoing adventures.
This is some very exciting news! I can only imagine what the Imagineering team can come up with for these two ships after seeing what they have already came up with for the original four ships. I am really hoping they come up with something even more unique that what the other ships already have!

In early 2017, Disney Cruise Line returns to favorite destinations in the Caribbean and Bahamas on a variety of itineraries, most from popular Florida ports. Limited-time engagements in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Galveston, Texas, complete the line-up for the first part of the year.
During these sailings, you will visit timeless tropical locales, dive into charming island cultures, sunbathe on golden beaches and revel in local marketplaces. Most cruises feature a stop at Disney Castaway Cay, a private island paradise reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line Guests.
Bookings open Gold and Platinum Castaway Club Members on Oct. 7, 2015 and to the public on Oct. 8.
When packing for your cruise, necessary items include proof of citizenship, valuables, medications (in their original containers), personal items or other items required for check-in or embarkation. Please note, it’s highly recommended that you pack necessary items in your day bag.
During the summer months, lightweight shorts, slacks, sundresses, jeans and tops are all appropriate daytime attire in the Bahamas, the Caribbean and Central Florida. In the winter and on cruises to cooler regions, a light jacket, sweater and socks may be needed.
Bring comfortable shoes like boat shoes, sandals or sneakers. And don’t forget swimwear, a sunhat or visor, sunglasses and sunscreen. Please note that topless sunbathing is not allowed. Swimsuit tops must be worn at all time. Thong-style bottoms are not permitted.
All cruises host a tropical deck party. You’re invited to join in the fun by wearing festive island wear, including colorful shirts, dresses, shorts or pants
The dress policy is “Cruise Casual.” It is requested that you do not wear tank tops, swimwear or shorts to the dining rooms. Jeans are allowed.
If you dine at Palo or Remy, they have a separate dress code in place.
There may be a formal and a semi-formal night. Disney Cruise Line will provide a brochure with tuxedo rental information for gentlemen wishing to have a tux provided onboard.
There is generally a themed “Pirates of the Caribbean” night. Guests may choose to wear “pirate” attire if they’d like.
