Disney Cruise Line announced details of its fleet’s sixth ship. The newest ship will be named Disney Treasure and will be an all-new vacation experience for Australia and New Zealand.
“At the heart of every adventure, there’s a treasure, and we can’t wait for you to create memories aboard this spectacular ship,” explained Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro.
Disney fans were the first to learn of the new ship at the D23 Expo in a never-before-seen concept video that premiered on stage. Peter Pan flew over the vessel to uncover the ship’s name and Disney characters on the hunt for adventure.
Disney Treasure Theme
D’Amaro revealed the Disney Treasure will be designed 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.”
The Grand Hall is inspired by the grandeur and mystery of a gilded palace and draws on real-world influences from Asia and Africa, paying homage to the far-off land of Agrabah from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ classic, Aladdin.
The signature atrium character statue, which is a Disney Cruise Line tradition, will be a representation of Aladdin, Jasmine, and the magic carpet soaring together toward a whole new world of adventure.
The Disney Treasure is scheduled for delivery in 2024. Following the Disney Wish that set sail in July 2022, it’s the second of three new ships planned through 2025.
The ships are powered by liquefied natural gas and feature 1,254 staterooms.
Second Bahamas Destination
D’Amaro also shared with the D23 audience that work has begun on Disney’s second island destination in the Bahamas. Lighthouse Point is located on the island of Eleuthera.
Disney is working 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’s service of local cast and crew.
Disney fans also saw new renderings of a vibrant beach, a recreation center, dining, shopping, a water playground, a cultural pavilion, and more.
Disney has committed to developing less than 20 percent of the property; supplying 90 percent of the site’s power from solar energy; employing sustainable building practices; and donating more than 190 screws of privately owned land to the government. Environmental programs have already been established and will continue throughout construction and into operation.
