Disney Cruise Line Announces Construction of LNG-Powered Ships
Last year, Disney Cruise Line announced plans to build two new ships at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany with scheduled completion dates of 2021 and 2023. Now, the cruise line announced the seventh ship in its fleet will be built at the same shipyard and is scheduled to be completed in 2022. All three ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas.
All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences. The three new ships will be approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned, which is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
