A New Disney Cruise Is Coming To Southeast Asia For The First Time In 2025
Disney fans, if your mousey ears haven't heard yet, Disney Cruise Line has announced that a new ship will soon make its way to Southeast Asia for the first time!
In collaboration with Singapore Tourism Board, the magical cruise vacations will be heading to Singapore for at least five years from 2025 onwards.
"This is a very exciting year for The Walt Disney Company — 2023 marks our 100th anniversary," Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairperson Josh D'Amaro said in a press release on 29 March.
"As part of this, Disney Cruise Line is currently undergoing an ambitious expansion with new ships and new destinations around the world. We are incredibly excited to make Singapore the home port to our seventh-launched ship, which will sail from here year-round starting in 2025."
The new ship will feature Disney experiences along with world-class dining, entertainment, and guest services
There will be dedicated spaces and activities designed for guests of all ages. Families will also be able to meet beloved characters such as Captain Mickey Mouse, Captain Minnie Mouse, Disney Princesses, Marvel Super Heroes, and more.
Disney Cruise Line can accommodate up to 6,000 passengers, with 2,300 crew members. Plus, it's expected to be among the first in the cruise industry to be fuelled by green methanol, one of the lowest emission fuels available.
The construction of the ship is set to be completed in Wismar, Germany
It will be done at the MV Werften shipyard under the management of Meyer Werft, the Papenburg-based company that built the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Wish.
At present, Disney Cruise Line destinations include the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, Alaska, Canada, the Mexican Riviera, and the Pacific coast, among others.
More details about the ship and the cruise will be announced at a later date.
