Disney fans and cruise ship enthusiasts are excited to hear about Disney Cruise Line’s  newest ship that will be making its debut in 2022. The announcement was made at this year’s D23 Expo. At the Expo, Disney gave attendees a glimpse of its newest cruise ship, the Disney Wish, and announced plans for its second private island getaway in the Bahamas.

The Disney Wish will be designed with the character of Rapunzel in mind. The entire ship will feature an enchanted fairytale theme with Rapunzel being the main character featured within the ship’s design.  The Disney Wish will be a bright, airy and elegant ship, with a more subdued style than other Disney cruise ships.


The announcement included a picture of the ship’s atrium, which is inspired directly from the fairytale. Since the character of Rapunzel is known for her artistic flair, she will be featured in many of the paintings on the ship, including on the ship’s stern. It was Disney’s hope that Rapunzel’s spirited, smart and adventurous spirit and desire to see and experience the world would inspire the style and theme for the ship.

The Disney Wish will be completed in late 2021 and will be making its maiden voyage in January 2022. The ship will feature 1,250 guest staterooms and will be powered by liquefied natural gas, like the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy ships.

The other unique aspect of this ship is one of the destinations included on its travel itinerary. The Disney Wish will be stopping at a new destination called Lighthouse Point on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Lighthouse Point is the second Bahamian destination, the first being Castaway Cay. This second destination is being designed by Joe Rohde. Rohde was also paramount in creating Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the Aulani Resort and Spa in Hawaii. He is working closely with local artists to help preserve the island’s environment and culture.

An Environmental Impact Assessment and Environmental Management Plan must be completed, reviewed and accepted by government officials in the Bahamas before construction can begin.
