Disney Cruise Lines announced the name of their next ship the Disney Destiny. The 144,000-ton vessel will be a sister to the 20-month-old Disney Wish and the Disney Treasure, sailing in December 2024.

The design theme of the Disney Destiny, sister to the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure, will be “Heroes and Villains,” drawing on the legacy of beloved Disney stories, characters and theme park attractions to forge a cruise vacation that will empower guests to embrace their own calling aboard every unforgettable voyage.

The Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams were inspired by the dynamic duality of every great Disney story, where opposing forces of light and dark drive characters to rise to their purpose when developing the Disney Destiny. Onboard, guests will encounter heroes and villains alike – including those from beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios stories like “The Lion King,” “Hercules,” and “One Hundred and One Dalmatians” – within the spaces, experiences and entertainment throughout their voyage.

To embody and embolden the theme, Disney also unveiled brand-new filigree artwork for the bow of the Disney Destiny, continuing a beloved Disney Cruise Line design tradition. The illustration depicts Minnie Mouse striking a valiant pose in a heroic ensemble, her cape waving majestically in the sea breeze as she boldly leads guests toward their vacation destinies.

“The Disney Destiny will celebrate our most legendary Disney stories and characters, bringing them to life in new and exciting ways exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests,” Sharon Siskie, the line’s senior vice president and general manager, said in a statement accompanying the announcement.
“As we continue to expand our fleet, the Disney Destiny will further strengthen our position as a leader in family cruising as we offer even more ways for families to experience Disney magic and world-class service at sea,” Siskie added. The keel-laying ceremony marking the official start of the construction was held at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

Disney will also debut the Disney Adventure in 2025. DCL bought the Adventure from another company that went out of business and is finishing it with Disney touches. The development and launch of the four new ships mark the most extensive expansion in Disney Cruise Line’s 26-year history; until the debut of Disney Wish, the line operated just four vessels.

The Triton Class ships have been designed with 1,258 cabins that can hold 2,508 passengers at double occupancy with a total capacity of 4,000 passengers.

Disney Destiny is not yet open for bookings, and the date for its maiden voyage has not yet been set.
