A new Disney Cruise experience awaits! Disney welcomes the 5th ship, the Disney Wish Disney Cruise Line Fleet ready to set sail January 2022. With a whole new ship, and a new private island added to the lineup, here’s everything we know so far about this new ship and where it’s going.
Disney Cruise Line’s Newest Ship
The Disney Wish joins the Disney Cruise Line Fleets in 2022. Alongside the Wonder, Fantasy, Dream and Magic. The Disney Wish will visit a variety of locations, but most notably visit port at Disney’s New Private Island, Lighthouse Point, which we have a few more details on below.
Disney Wish Theme
The stern of the Disney Wish ship highlights a perfectly coiffed Rapunzel from Tangled and sidekick chameleon, Pascal playing around on the front of the boat as the ships mascot. Complete with gold lettering on the distinctive Navy of the Disney Cruise Line Fleet.
Disney Wish Spaces
Atrium: The elegant atrium features a magical Tangled like feel, featuring a floating lantern chandelier, light wrapping staircases and balconies and an all over purple and pink color scheme.
Cabins will be similar to those of all the Disney Cruise Line ships. No restaurants have yet been shared, but we’ll be sharing those here as soon as they are announced.
Disney Wish Experiences
You can still plan on the on-boat fireworks, meet and greets with your favorite Disney characters and new shows good enough for Broadway.
Everything we Know about the Disney Wish
Lighthouse Point Eluethera | Bahamas
Disney Cruise Line confirmed the purchase of Disney’s 2nd private island, joining Castaway Cay as a private port location for Disney Cruise Line travelers. Eleuthera, a Bahamian Island is known for it’s pink sand beaches and where Lighthouse Point will be situated.
The focus of Eleuthera is to preserve the natural landscape while bringing in elements of the cultural local air. Local artisans, performers and the like will be part of the Eleuthera experience as Disney’s port at Lighthouse Point. The island features rolling pink sand beaches, coral reefs, and caves. Eleuthera is also home to the Leon Levy Native Plant Reserve, sitting on 25 acres. Aligned with Disney’s Conservation goals of preserving the natural landscape we’ll be interested to see if this center preserve and it’s environmental education center becomes part of the port experience.
Booking a Cruise on the Disney Wish
The Disney Wish will be ready for booking in January 2022, though we don’t know designated ports yet. When we recently sailed on the Disney Magic, we inquired about the exact dates the Wish would start booking and begin sailing, and we were told that is still to be determined. We’ll be sharing all the new info in this post as more Disney Wish news arrives. And keep an eye on the Disney Cruise Line page for more! Stay tuned!
