NEW Disney Cruise Ship to Set Sail in Japan!

July 9, 2024
By

Disney has announced a groundbreaking agreement with Oriental Land Co., Ltd. (OLC) that will bring year-round Disney cruise vacations to Japan. This development means another new Disney Cruise Ship is on the way!

Disney Cruises Expanding to Japan

Under the new agreement, OLC will operate a Disney-branded cruise business in Japan, expected to launch by early 2029. This dedicated cruise ship will be constructed at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, featuring imaginative designs by Walt Disney Imagineering. Similar to the Disney Wish, this vessel will be approximately 140,000 gross tons, boast around 1,250 staterooms, and be powered by liquefied natural gas. It will feature many favorite venues and experiences from Disney Wish with some special modifications tailored specifically for Japanese guests.

This exciting addition to Disney’s cruise fleet will provide an unparalleled blend of fun, relaxation, and world-class entertainment for Japanese Disney fans and international visitors alike. As always, Disney promises to deliver exceptional guest service, making each voyage magical and memorable. If it is anything like Tokyo Disney Resort, we have no doubt this might be the best Disney Cruise Ship EVER!

Other Disney Cruise Ships on the Horizon

In addition to the new ship destined for Japan, Disney Cruise Line fans have even more to look forward to with three other ships currently under development:

  1. Disney Treasure: Expected to join the fleet in late 2024, Disney Treasure promises adventurous themes inspired by classic Disney stories and characters.
  2. Disney Destiny: This ship is set to offer enchanting experiences powered by the tales of Disney heroes and villains.
  3. Disney Adventure: Designed to explore new destinations, Disney Adventure will bring exciting 3 and 4-night voyages to Singapore.

Each of these ships will continue Disney’s tradition of providing unforgettable adventures at sea with top-tier dining, entertainment, and guest services.
