At the end of April, Disney Cruise Line announced lots of details on its upcoming ship, Disney Wish.
Now just two weeks later, the company has revealed additional info about the vessel.
Wish Tower Suite
For the first time, Wish will feature the Wish Tower Suite — a stateroom set high at the top of the ship in the forward funnel. With an elegant design inspired by “Moana,” incomparable ocean views, and premium service, the 1,966-square-foot penthouse will be a celebration of the spirit of the sea.
“Each of our theme parks has a majestic icon that captures our guests’ imaginations,” said Laura Cabo, portfolio creative executive, Walt Disney Imagineering. “On a Disney cruise ship, that beacon of magic is our signature red funnels. For the first time ever, guests aboard the Disney Wish will be able to book an incredible two-story suite that’s actually located within one of our funnels. With the Wish Tower Suite, we are creating a breathtaking experience that continues our tradition of the most unique and enchanting accommodations at sea.”
The Wish Tower Suite will comfortably sleep up to eight guests with two main bedrooms, a children’s room, and a library that converts to a bedroom. It will also include a whopping 4.5 bathrooms.
The living room will be flanked by an open dining area, a large pantry, and a bar — all offering extraordinary views through a two-story window wall.
On the suite’s upper level loft, the main bedrooms will be lavish with king beds, walk-in closets, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the living area below and the views beyond. The main bathrooms will have double vanities, soaking tubs, and rain showers.
The suite is being designed with artwork, icons, and materials that evoke the world of “Moana.” A soothing palette of calm blues, whites, and deep corals will lay the foundation of the interior, while ornaments and custom artwork will convey nods to the characters and locales of the film.
The piece de resistance will be a hand-crafted porcelain sculpture that comes alive in a unique way. When guests arrive back to the suite, they may discover the statue pulsing in a myriad of green hues amid soft chimes that recall the movie’s soundtrack, revealing itself as the heart of Te Fiti. The special lighting and audio effects will eventually fill the room for a truly magical greeting.
Other film-inspired decorations will include a custom canvas piece depicting Moana sailing on the sea, dimensional props that celebrate the treasures of the ocean and the local crafts of Moana’s village, and a glittering sculpture composed of shiny objects a la Tamatoa’s dazzling collection.
The children’s room will feature built-in bunkbeds and a sparkling constellation pattern that lights up the ceiling to reveal imagery from the movie, composed entirely of stars.
Guests staying in the Wish Tower Suite will be treated to a personal concierge team, a selection of daily treats, and a private elevator. It will also include VIP access to the concierge lounge and sun deck with two whirlpools, a wading pool, a bar, and the service of a pool deck host.
Weddings in the Grand Hall
Also announced today is a new wedding venue that will be available to couples aboard Disney Wish.
The Grand Hall atrium will be available as a wedding ceremony spot on the ship, with its magnificent staircase serving as a stunning backdrop for a wedding or vow renewal. The shimmering chandelier will illuminate the space, while the sparkling columns frame the Grand Hall. As well, the elegant royal blue and gold color palette of the atrium can easily be paired with a variety of wedding looks and colors.
Like every Fairy Tale Wedding aboard Disney Cruise Line, each couple will enjoy their own dedicated Disney Weddings team who will be there along the entire planning journey and on the wedding day to ensure a magical experience.
As always, weddings or portrait sessions are also available on Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.
Disney Wish will set sail on her maiden voyage on June 9, 2022, followed by a season of three to four-night cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay from Port Canaveral.
Bookings open to the general public on May 27, 2021.
