Disney Cruise Line revealed the first details about its next ship, the Disney Destiny, as it reached a new construction milestone. A keel-laying ceremony took place at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, as the sister ship to the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure got underway.

The design theme of the Disney Destiny will be ‘Heroes and Villains,’ drawing on the legacy of beloved Disney stories, characters and theme park attractions.

The Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams were inspired by the duality of every great Disney story, where opposing forces of light and dark drive characters to discover their purpose. Onboard, guests will encounter heroes and villains alike, such as those from beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios stories like The Lion King, Hercules, and 101 Dalmatians – within the spaces, experiences, and entertainment throughout their cruise.

Disney also unveiled new artwork for the bow of the Disney Destiny, which continued a beloved Disney Cruise Line design tradition. It depicts Minnie Mouse in a valiant pose, her cape waving in the sea breeze as she boldly leads guests towards their holiday destinies.

Sharon Siskie, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Disney Cruise Line, said: “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

“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.”

The Disney Destiny is scheduled for delivery in 2025.
