Disney Cruise Line To Double Fleet SizeDisney Cruise Line To Double Fleet Size

The cast of Beauty and the Beast has been hard at work have going through the steps for the show at their Toronto workshop. This new stage show, exclusive to the Disney Dream, is inspired by the recent live action film. Theater goers will be transported into one of Maurice's beautiful music boxes, where the story unfolds. This truly unique production will include two new original songs, and feature scenes from the little town, into the woods, through the castle maze, and deep within the halls. Enchanted objects in true to life scale will be brought to like through puppetry. During the panel the cast gave a lovely performance and special look into their rehearsals.

A leader in the cruise industry, Disney's loyal fans have been clamoring for more opportunities to create magical memories at sea. Well Disney has listened, and announced that DCL is expanding fleet with not with two new ships as we had heard before - but with three brand new cruise ships by 2023!

Once the three new vessels are completed this will double the size of the Disney Fleet. The ships are being built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, and the first two have scheduled completion dates of 2021 and 2023. The seventh ship, also being built at Meyer Werft, will slip into the middle and be completed in 2022. The three new ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and be the same size - approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned - which is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

Ship names and designs are still in development, but at the expo fans were told that they can expect that by the time the fleet is finished each and every one of the ships will be bringing guests its own unique array of experiences.

Who is ready to set sail with me?
