In November 2022, it came out that Disney purchased the Global Dream 2, the world’s largest cruise ship. The Global Dream 2 was originally ordered by a now-defunct Asian cruise company and had been for sale in an incomplete state for nearly a year. Originally designed to hold as many as 9,000 passengers, the Disney version is expected to hold about 6,000 passengers and 2,300 crew. Compare that the Disney’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, which holds about 4,000 passengers and 1,500 crew.
Today, Disney Cruise Line announced this new ship will sail to Southeast Asia from a home port in Singapore. The new ship will set sail in 2025 and will call Singapore home for at least 5 years. Details about the maiden voyage, itineraries and onboard experiences will be announced at a later date. The name of the ship has not been announced either.
The new ship will feature innovative Disney experiences along with the dazzling entertainment, world-class dining and legendary guest service that set Disney Cruise Line apart. Guests of all ages will find dedicated spaces and activities designed just for them, and families will create unforgettable memories with beloved characters such as Captain Mickey Mouse and Captain Minnie Mouse, Disney Princesses, Marvel Super Heroes and more.
Disney Cruise Line estimates the passenger capacity of the 208,000-gross-ton ship to be approximately 6,000 with around 2,300 crew members. It is expected to be among the first in the cruise industry to be fueled by green methanol, one of the lowest-emission fuels available.
This announcement does not affect the schedule of the upcoming Disney Wish class ships, the Disney Treasure (2024 or 2025), and a currently unnamed second sister ship to be launched in 2027 or 2028.
