Disney’s upcoming cruise ship has achieved a new major construction milestone. Disney Treasure has a full hull after the final ‘block’ was put in place at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

The final block is the part of the ship that that will house the adults-only Quiet Cove area and Hero Zone sports center.

It is now “considered structurally complete,” the company said in a blog post, and work will now move to interior outfitting. Disney Treasure will be the sixth ship in the DCL fleet, and it has a layout similar to that of the Disney Wish, which launched last year. It will house 1,256 staterooms.

Disney Treasure itineraries

Disney Treasure is slated to launch in late 2024, with sailings from Port Canaveral in the Eastern and Western Caribbean. The first sailing will be on December 21, 2024. The new ship is expected to be among the first in the Disney fleet to call at the new private island destination, Lighthouse Point.

The first steel was cut less than a year ago, in January 2023, with the keel laid in March 2023. The iconic Disney funnels were just completed on the ship a week ago. The forward funnel will be integral to the AquaMouse water coaster ride.

New amenities planned for Disney Treasure

Disney recently announced new amenities and experiences exclusive to Disney Treasure. These include a new ‘Coco’ dining experience, Jungle Cruise, and Haunted Mansion-themed bars.

Disney Treasure will debut “The Tale of Moana,” a new Broadway-style musical show, as well as existing favorites “Beauty and the Beast” and “Disney Seas the Adventure.” The Sarabi Center is the ship’s central two-story entertainment hub, inspired by the “Lion King.”
