How Much Disney Paid For Global Dream
Details on the purchase of Global Dream were published in the German magazine Stern saying that it was sold for 40 million euros, or $41.3 million dollars with the currency conversion.
Already being 75 percent completed before Genting filed for bankruptcy this past January, it’s reported that 1.3 billion euros have already been invested in construction.
Although we don’t know exactly what changes will be made to the vessel, Disney is reducing the guest capacity from 9,000 to 6,000. Work on the ship will be overseen by Meyer Werft shipyard, the same yard that built Disney Dream, Fantasy, and Wish.
The ship is scheduled to debut in 2025 and be powered by green methanol fuel.
