Keel laid for Disney Cruise Lines’ third LNG-fuelled ‘Wish’ class vessel

A keel laying ceremony was held yesterday (20 March) at the Meyer Werft yard for Disney Cruise Line’s LNG-fuelled Disney Destiny.

The vessel is the third ship in the ‘Wish’ class. It is the sister ship of the Disney Treasure, which is also under construction, and the Disney Wish, which launched in 2022.

‘With the keel laying, we have reached another milestone in our partnership with Disney Cruise Line,’ said Thomas Weigend, Chief Sales Officer of the Meyer Group and Managing Director of Meyer Werft. ‘The third ship in the Wish class will also impress with Meyer quality and be rich in Disney storytelling.’

The vessel will have approximately 1,250 cabins and a size of around 144,000 GT. Delivery is planned for 2025.

The Meyer Group is also completing the conversion of the Disney Adventure cruise ship in Wismar for Disney Cruise Line. The vessel is planned to run on green methanol.
