The atrium of the Disney Wish will be a bright, airy and elegant space inspired by the beauty of fairytales.
Per tradition for the Disney Cruise Line, the stern of the ship will be adorned by an iconic Disney character that reflects the theme of the Disney Wish – Rapunzel! The princess, with her paintbrush in hand, can be seen using her enchanted hair to suspend herself as she decorates the stern of the ship with the help of Pascal.
The Disney Wish is scheduled for delivery in 2021, and its first sailing will take place in 2022. All three of the cruise line’s new ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy with guest 1,250 staterooms.
The panel also revealed details on Disney’s second island in the Bahamas, which will be located on the island of Eleuthera at a place called Lighthouse Point. Disney will be directly involved in conservation efforts to preserve and protect the environment of the island, and will be working with local artists to create this new destination.
Construction will not begin on this new destination until after an Environmental Impact Assessment and Environmental Management Plan have been reviewed and accepted by the Government of The Bahamas and public consultation has taken place. Construction could start in 2020 with completion set for late 2022 or 2023.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Disney Wish and Lighthouse Point as we receive them.
