Disney Cruise Line will be debuting what it’s calling a first-of-its-kind accommodation on board the Disney Wish—the Wish Tower Suite, set high in the forward funnel of the ship.
The 1,966-sq.-ft. penthouse suite, whose design is inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana,” will sleep up to eight guests with two main bedrooms, a children’s room, a library that converts to a bedroom and 4.5 bathrooms. The living room will be flanked by an open dining area, a large pantry and a bar, all offering views across the upper decks to the horizon through a 2-story window wall. Located on the upper-level loft, the main bedrooms will feature king beds, walk-in closets and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the living area below to the views beyond. The main bathrooms will each have double vanities, soaking tubs and rain showers.
The Wish Tower Suite on board the Disney Wish is being designed with artwork, iconography and materials that evoke the Oceania-inspired world of “Moana.” It will feature a palette of calm blues, soft whites and deep corals complemented by ornaments and custom artwork that pay homage to the film’s characters and locales. The “piece de resistance” will be a hand-crafted porcelain sculpture that comes alive—when guests arrive to the Wish Tower Suite, they may discover the statue pulsing in myriad hues of green amid soft chimes that recall the film’s distinctive soundtrack, revealing itself as the heart of Te Fiti. The special lighting and audio effects will eventually fill the room.
Other film-inspired decorations include a custom canvas piece depicting Moana sailing on the sea; dimensional props that celebrate the treasures of the ocean and the local crafts of Moana’s village; and a glittering sculpture composed of shiny objects—a playful interpretation of Tamatoa’s dazzling collection. The children’s room, which will feature uniquely designed built-in bunkbeds, will have a sparkling constellation pattern that lights up the ceiling to reveal imagery from the movie composed entirely of stars: Moana’s oar, Gramma Tala, Maui’s hook and the heart of Te Fiti.
Other amenities include a personal concierge team, an array of curated experiences, a selection of daily treats and a private elevator as well as plush Frette duvets, bed linens, bath towels and robes; motorized sheer and block-out curtains; a wet bar stocked with water and sodas; complimentary Internet access; and a menu of hypo-allergenic, feather and therapeutic memory foam pillows. Guests will also have VIP access to the concierge lounge and sun deck with two whirlpools, a wading pool, a bar, lounge furniture and the service of a pool deck host.
“For the first time ever, guests aboard the Disney Wish will be able to book an incredible 2-story suite that’s actually located within one of our funnels. With the Wish Tower Suite, we are creating a breathtaking experience that continues our tradition of the most unique and enchanting accommodations at sea,” said Laura Cabo, portfolio creative executive, Walt Disney Imagineering, in a press release statement.
