The sixth cruise ship for Disney Cruise Line officially has a name — Disney Treasure!
Today during a presentation at D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro offered a first glimpse inside the vessel.
Imagineers dreamed up a new design concept for the ship, celebrating Walt Disney’s lifelong love of exploration. The Grand Hall, which is the vessel’s three-story tall atrium, is inspired by the grandeur and mystery of a gilded palace, drawing on real-world influences from Asia and Africa, and paying homage to the far-off land of Agrabah. At the center, the signature statue will feature Aladdin, Jasmine, and their Magic Carpet.
“At the heart of every adventure there is a treasure,” said D’Amaro. ”This is gonna be an epic journey into Disney stories.”
Disney Treasure is scheduled to debut in 2024.
Voyages to New Destinations
The line also announced that for the first time, it will be sailing Down Under to Australia and New Zealand.
The special voyages will be for a limited time as part of the line’s ”Disney Magic at Sea” cruises that immerse guests in Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars stories beginning in late October 2023.
Repositioning cruises for Disney Wonder will be the first south Pacific voyages for Disney Cruise Line ever, giving passengers the chance to discover destinations like Fiji and Samoa.
Disney Wonder will operate these voyages through February 2024, and they will range from two to six nights long. They’ll depart from four homeports: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Auckland.
“Disney Magic at Sea” bookings will open on September 29 for Australia and New Zealand cruises. The repositioning voyages will open to the general public for booking on October 6.
