Great news for Disney fans! There is a new cruise ship Disney just announced that is set to be one of the most magical ships yet. It is also the first of its kind, having an attraction on the cruise. The maiden voyage of the Wish cruise ship will be on July 14th, 2022 and it exceeds all expectations. With a waterslide, lots of activities, and amazing places to just sit and enjoy the time on the ship, this cruise will be an absolute dream for any guest on board.


What To Know About Disney Wish

Laura Cabo, a creative executive with Disney Imagineering, says that this is a completely unique design and experience because the guests never have to leave the magic while onboard the ship. And with the new things added to the ship, she’s right. On the ship includes a whole new dining experience, storytelling with fan favorites, and adult-only lounges in the ship. One of the newest and best parts is an attraction actually on the ship.

While those are a lot of changes with experiences, the actual design of the ship is different and incredibly immersive. There are many designs that focus on the fairy tale aspect of the cruise, such as castles and a Great Hall, making guests feel like royalty. Even the name is meant to make guests feel like they are part of an amazing experience and living the fairy tale dream themselves because they can live out their wishes while on this cruise ship.

Wish Cruise Ship Stops And Cruising Costs

While tickets for the ship have already been open for nearly a year, fans can still hop on some later dates. The cruise ship only does 3 and 4-day trips as of right now, but they are amazing magical days. The stops with this ship include:

  • Port Canaveral to Disney Castaway Cay
  • Port Canaveral to Nassau, the Bahamas to Disney Castaway Cay

Since they are such short trips, they cannot go to many places. But the good news is that guests will barely even notice the shortage of stops because of the amazing things that they can do onboard. There are a few different options for cost with this trip, but the beginning prices range from $1,745 to $2,88. This is the price of an initial ticket for two guests but includes things such as food, waterslides, and character experiences.

A Virtual Tour Of The Disney Wish

Since this is such a new ship, there is much to explore. With so many activities, adventures, and dining options, guests will need to keep a map and itinerary on their person at all times. Luckily, Disney has guests covered with an interactive map of the ship.

Guest rooms are on decks 2-14, ranging in size and price based on what deck they are on and if they have things such as an ocean view. There are elevators in the middle of the ship to help guests get to their rooms and activities quickly and easily. There’s even a laundry room on deck 8.

For attractions, shows, and dining guests will have to double-check the map so no one gets lost. There are pools, cafes, and the AquaMouse waterslide on the top decks, but there is something on every deck. Attractions and dining are primarily on decks 2-5, but there are options on other decks.
