Disney Cruise Line has revealed the first details of its next ship, the Disney Destiny, as it reached a new construction milestone with a keel laying ceremony at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

The design theme of the Disney Destiny, sister to the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure, will be “Heroes and Villains,” and will draw upon on the legacy of Disney stories, characters and theme park attractions.

The Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams took their inspiration from the Disney stories where opposing forces of light and dark drive characters to rise to their purpose. Guests aboard the ship will encounter Disney heroes and villains within the spaces, experiences and entertainment, including those from Walt Disney Animation Studios stories such as “The Lion King,” “Hercules” and “One Hundred and One Dalmatians.”

Disney Cruise Line’s Multi-Year Expansion

Disney also unveiled new filigree artwork for the bow of the Disney Destiny, continuing a Disney Cruise Line design tradition. The illustration depicts Minnie Mouse striking a valiant pose with her cape waving in the sea breeze.

“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,” said Sharon Siskie, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Disney Cruise Line. “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 as part of a multi-year expansion of the Disney Cruise Line fleet that includes the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure, the Disney Adventure that will homeport in Singapore, and the new island destination in The Bahamas, Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.
