Disney Reveals Name and Concept for Next Cruise Ship

Debuting in 2025, Disney Cruise Line (DCL) has just unveiled the name of its newest ship—Disney Destiny.

The third Wish-class vessel will celebrate the heroes and villains from some of The Walt Disney Company’s most beloved animated films.

The announcement comes after the cruise ship’s keel laying ceremony at the Meyer Weft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The new theme, “Heroes and Villains,” draws inspiration from Disney’s characters, stories, and theme park attractions.

The ship will explore how “opposing forces of light and darkness drive characters to rise to their purposes.”

Future passengers of Disney Destiny can expect to see famous personalities from Hercules, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, and The Lion King onboard. 

The cruise line also revealed a new design for the ship’s bow, which features Minnie Mouse. The specially designed filigree artwork shows Minnie in a heroic mid-flight pose, wearing a superhero costume with a cape.

Disney Destiny is part of DCL’s plan to expand its fleet over the next few years. Sharon Siskie, the senior vice president and general manager, underscored its strategic importance. 

“As we continue to expand our fleet, the Disney Destiny will further strengthen our position as a leader in family cruising as we offer even more ways for families to experience Disney magic and world-class service at sea,” Siskie declared.

Destiny has two sister ships: Disney Wish, which debuted in 2022, and Disney Treasure, scheduled to join the fleet this December.

The cruise operator is also renovating a ship that will be christened the Disney Adventure. With plans to homeport the vessel to Singapore, it will be DCL’s first time entering the Southeast Asian cruise market.

DCL acquired the Global-class ship from Genting Cruise Lines in 2022 for a reported $44 million after the latter filed for bankruptcy.
