If your “wish” is to cruise the high seas with Disney, you’ll have an all-new option soon! Disney recently revealed that it’s adding a fifth ship, the Wish, to its Cruise Line.

What can you expect from the Wish? Like Disney Cruise Line’s other ships (the Fantasy, Wonder, Dream and Magic), the Wish will feature a beloved character adorning the stern—and this time it’s Rapunzel.


According to Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek, in a press release, “There couldn’t be a better name for our incredible new ship because making wishes come true is part of the Disney DNA and is at the heart of so many of our cherished stories.” Chapek continued, “Each Disney Cruise Line ship is unique, with a name that embodies the excitement of sailing with Disney and the power of our stories.”

Along with the Rapunzel-themed stern, the Wish will feature a three-story atrium and plenty of amenities. Even though this new ship may make your wishes come true, you’ll have to wait until January 2022 for it to set sail.

Disney also announced a second island destination in the Bahamas. Construction on Lighthouse Point, located on the island of Eleuthera, will begin sometime between 2020 and 2023. Before breaking ground Disney will submit an Environmental Impact Assessment and Environmental Management Plan for the Government of The Bahamas to review and accept.
