We got a treasure trove of new updates for Disney Cruise Line guests. The fleet’s sixth ship, and the concept art for its new island destination! Over the shutdowns the last few years I know there were a few of us who were concerned these new items would be on a major delay. Let’s dig into what we now know about the new Disney Treasure cruise ship!
The Disney Treasure Ship
Disney fans were the first to learn that the next Disney Cruise Line ship will be named Disney Treasure. In a never-before-seen concept video premiered on stage, Peter Pan flies over the vessel to uncover not just the ship’s name, but a surprising array of Disney characters on the hunt for adventure.
The Disney Treasure will be designed with a brand-new motif, unlike anything Disney Cruise Line has done before. The theme of adventure, inspired by Walt Disney’s love of exploration, will pave the way for epic experiences that immerse guests in some of the company’s most legendary stories.
“At the heart of every adventure, there’s a treasure, and we can’t wait for you to create memories aboard this spectacular ship,” D’Amaro said.
The Grand Hall will radiate the irresistible allure of adventure, inviting guests to seek all the treasures on board from the moment they embark. Inspired by the grandeur and mystery of a gilded palace, it draws on real-world influences from Asia and Africa and pays homage to the far-off land of Agrabah from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ classic tale, “Aladdin.”
The signature atrium character statue, a Disney Cruise Line tradition, will be a shining, shimmering, splendid representation of Aladdin, Jasmine, and Magic Carpet soaring together toward a whole new world of adventure.
The Disney Treasure is scheduled for delivery in 2024. Following the Disney Wish, which set sail in July this year, it’s the second of three new ships planned through 2025. The Wish class ships are powered by liquefied natural gas and feature 1,254 guest staterooms.
Disney’s Second Island – Lighthouse Point
D’Amaro shared that work has begun on Disney’s second island destination in the Bahamas, located on the island of Eleuthera at a place called Lighthouse Point, unveiling new details and concept art for the D23 audience. I also want to take a moment to say that while Castaway Cay is entirely Disney’s use this spot will be a peninsula of a bigger island.
Disney is working closely with Bahamian artists and advisors to create a destination that represents the natural beauty and rich culture of the Bahamas, brought to life through Disney storytelling and the unparalleled service of the local cast and crew.
New renderings show a vibrant beach retreat infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry. In addition to the pristine beaches, families will enjoy a recreation center, dining, shopping, a water playground, a cultural pavilion, and more.
Disney has committed to develop less than 20 percent of the property; supply 90 percent of the site’s power from solar energy; employ sustainable building practices, and donate more than 190 acres of privately owned land to the government. Environmental management programs have already been established and will continue throughout construction and into operation.
Let us know in the comments below if you are excited to set sail on the Disney Treasure.
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
