Disney Cruise Line has announced the launch of its newest ship, the Disney Treasure, set to make its maiden voyage on December 21, 2024, from Port Canaveral, Florida. The ship will offer seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries. Pre-bookings for Castaway Club members will start on September 12, 2023, while general bookings will begin on September 20, 2023.

The ship will feature immersive environments inspired by various Disney and Pixar franchises, like "Aladdin," "Coco," and "Zootopia." Plaza de Coco will offer a theatrical dining experience, with storytelling from the Pixar film "Coco" incorporated into the meal. Jumbeaux’s Sweets, inspired by the film "Zootopia," will serve a wide range of handmade gelatos and ice creams.

Unique to the Disney Treasure, theme park experiences will also be brought on board, including Skipper Society, inspired by Jungle Cruise, and Periscope Pub, themed after the 1954 film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." A new, luxurious suite called the Tomorrow Tower Suite will be designed with EPCOT’s World Discovery neighborhood in mind, featuring nearly 2,000 square feet of living space.

The ship will also have themed areas and cafes inspired by Disney princesses like Moana and Mulan. An AquaMouse ride called "Curse of the Golden Egg" will offer a water attraction based on Mickey Mouse animated shorts. Classic stage productions like "Beauty and the Beast" will be featured, along with yet-to-be-announced new shows.

For kids, the ship will include areas like Disney’s Oceaneer Club, Edge, Vibe, and It’s a Small World Nursery. The 1,256 staterooms will be inspired by various Disney adventures and will offer custom artwork and design elements.

Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Cruise Line, Sharon Siskie, said the Disney Treasure would blend one-of-a-kind experiences with world-class dining and entertainment, promising an exciting journey for families on board the new ship.

Brand New Dining & Entertainment Inspired by Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios

Adventures from the worlds of Disney and Pixar will lend inspiration for two venues onboard the Disney Treasure.

Plaza de Coco will be the first theatrical dining experience themed to the Disney and Pixar film, "Coco." This theater-in-the-round entertainment venue will feature dining tables surrounding a central stage, with performances and show effects that will spread throughout the room. Guests will enjoy two different nights of unique dining experiences at Plaza de Coco during their voyage.

On the first night, the story of Miguel and his familia will continue where it left off on screen as they gather in Mariachi Plaza to take guests on a colorful, music-filled journey that celebrates family memories and togetherness. On the second night, Miguel will reunite with his great-great grandparents, Hector and Mama Imelda, by transporting them to Santa Cecilia with the help of his magic guitar for a Día de los Muertos celebration. Both nights will feature a dinner menu of modern twists on traditional Mexican fare and a lineup of live entertainment.

Next, the sweetshop, Jumbeaux's Sweets, will be reminiscent of the popular ice cream parlor, Jumbeaux Café, from the bustling mammal metropolis featured in Disney's "Zootopia." Surrounded by playful pink interiors, Victorian-style architecture and an endearing sculpture of Officer Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, guests will be served humor and heart by the cone full. From bunnies and elephants to sloths and foxes, all are welcome to indulge in more than 20 flavors of handmade gelato, 16 flavors of ice cream and sorbets, specialty treats, candies and more.

Disney Theme Park Adventures on the High Seas

For the first time, the nostalgia and lore from beloved theme park attractions will come to Disney Cruise Line with a unique lineup of Disney Parks-inspired venues aboard the Disney Treasure.

Skipper Society, a themed lounge near the Grand Hall, will bring Disney Parks' iconic Jungle Cruise attraction to sea for the first time. The venue's natural colorways and camp-style furnishings, paired with sly tributes to the trusty, dry-witted skippers, will offer an elevated, playful atmosphere. Guests will discover references to the famous attraction throughout the space, from a whimsical monkey-shaped chandelier to postcards and luggage tags brought back from travels abroad. Beneath a canopy of jungle foliage, guests will indulge in themed cocktails and light snacks and enjoy live entertainment.

Periscope Pub will become Disney Cruise Line's first venue inspired by the Walt Disney's 1954 film, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and the celebrated Disney Parks attraction that was open at Walt Disney World from 1971 to 1994. The design of the submarine-style interiors will call upon 19th century steampunk influences with polished metals and industrial touches. A mysterious window into the depths of the uncharted oceans along the ceiling will make guests feel like Captain Nemo on the Nautilus, while a decorative statement rug in the center of the space will honor Captain Nemo's fabled nemesis, the giant squid. This casual venue will be the ideal onboard locale for guests to unwind and watch live sports and news, while ordering from a menu of craft brews and light bites.

Embracing the adventures of the future, the Tomorrow Tower Suite will capture the same forward-thinking mindset that inspired the Walt Disney World Resort theme park, EPCOT, with an energetic design. Throughout the suite, dynamic art pieces, molten metal accents and futuristic, colorful glass accents will evoke the distinct atmosphere of EPCOT's World Discovery neighborhood. Set high in the ship's forward funnel, this one-of-a-kind suite will overlook the top deck of the Disney Treasure and glimpse the open horizon through an expansive two-story window. With nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, the Tomorrow Tower Suite will comfortably sleep eight guests and feature areas for eating, sleeping and playing, as well as other perks like a full kitchen and private ensuite elevator.

Classic Disney Adventures in Familiar Spaces

The Grand Hall will embody the ship's theme of adventure, with statues and décor that call on the gilded palace and wonder of Agrabah from Walt Disney Animation Studios' classic tale, "Aladdin." The space will serve as the ship's most prominent gathering space and will offer its own dedicated entertainment moments and surprises.

Just off the Grand Hall, two casual walk-up cafes will serve a selection of coffee, tea, specialty beverages and snacks, with new themes that draw inspiration from two brave Disney Princesses, Moana and Mulan. Named for Moana's trusty sidekick, Heihei Café will echo the scalloped seashells and reflective blue waters of the Southern Pacific Isle of Motunui as its portrayed in Disney's animated feature "Moana." The venue will feature furniture stylings that pay homage to a traditional construction technique used by the Polynesian people to craft seafaring vessels. Jade Cricket Café, inspired by the classic Disney film "Mulan," will honor the Fa Family's "lucky" cricket, Cri-Kee, who will be represented by a jade sculpture on the bar top. From the central moon gate to the plum blossom flowers adorning the walls, symbols of Mulan's strength, beauty and heritage will fill the café, while the striking blue walls and metallic counters will be reminiscent of her armor.

Further, Sarabi, a central hub for a multitude of daytime activities and adult-exclusive evening entertainment, will evoke the natural beauty and openness of the savanna where its namesake, the lioness matriarch from Disney's "The Lion King," lived.

AquaMouse: Curse of the Golden Egg, Disney Cruise Line's own attraction at sea, will plunge guests into the world of Mickey Mouse animated shorts. Suspended high above the upper decks, powerful jets will propel two-person ride vehicles through 760 feet of winding tubes, offering breathtaking views of the ocean and the ship below. Onboard the Disney Treasure, AquaMouse will introduce a new storyline that follows Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on a zany misadventure into an ancient temple for a glimpse of the legendary treasure within.

The artful accommodations aboard the Disney Treasure will be inspired by classic Disney tales of adventure. The 1,256 staterooms onboard will feature custom artwork and design elements that evoke the exploratory spirit of beloved Disney and Pixar films including "Aladdin," "Pocahontas," "Up" and "Encanto," while the concierge and royal suites will bring to life the incredible character journeys – and some beloved feline sidekicks – from "The Lion King," "The Jungle Book" and "Aladdin."

Finally, many Disney Cruise Line favorites will return to the Disney Treasure. In addition to an all-new, yet-to-be-announced stage production coming to the Walt Disney Theatre, "Beauty and the Beast" and "Disney Seas the Adventure" will thrill audiences with tales as old as time, while the upper decks will come to life with music and fireworks during the swashbuckling Pirate's Rockin' Parlay Party. Worlds of Marvel – which will include a new, second dining experience with more details to come – and 1923 will round out the family dining rotation, while The Rose, Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallament will continue to wow adults with exceptional views, gourmet meals and delicious beverages. For kids of all ages, Disney's Oceaneer Club, Edge, Vibe and It's a Small World Nursery return provide designated space to let their imaginations run free under the guide of Disney-trained counselors.

I was born at that point in my life.

Good point, I forgot about flying straight into FLL. No Southwest flights for us, since it would involve at least one connection and I'm at a point in my life where I don't do layovers for leisure travel (unless there are literally no other options).

Port Everglades is 4 miles from Fort Lauderdale Airport - which has a gate for Southwest so flights are pretty affordable (depending on where you're coming from of course). There's no need to fly into Miami (which is about 30 miles away) but the traffic will make that trek take about an hour, not much better than MCO->PC

HauntedPirate7 days ago

Personally/selfishly, I'd love to have the Dream available stateside year-round. Everglades would be fine with me, as it should be easier to get there from Miami than PC from MCO (despite flights into Miami for us tending to be more expensive, plus hotels are wowzers more expensive). In the event I ever want to sail a DCL cruise with friends in the future, it's my preferred choice.

Hi everyone!, is there any info about naval architect of this Disney treasure cruise ?

ToTBellHop8 days ago

So that ends up being November to February or so. Leaves plenty of time for Magic to sail elsewhere, too.

cjkeating8 days ago

Just looked it up and they are committed to a minimum of 26 cruises from 1st November 2023 per year. This was a pre COVID agreement so they may have adjusted timelines. No idea how this compares to this year. In 2018 there minimum commitment was 10 and had increased year on year.

ToTBellHop8 days ago

I presume the Galveston commitment is relatively limited since they won’t have a ship there year-round in 2024. Could just change nothing from the existing schedule moving into 2025 and just add Treasure to PC.

cjkeating8 days ago

The birth is getting upgraded to the new fuel the Triton class uses so it is clearly intended to take them. They have a contractual obligation to passenger numbers so they are committed.

ToTBellHop9 days ago

Fantasy sailing from PC allows them to offer sailings to Lookout Cay from PC, which I’m sure is desirable since they can charge so much from PC. And I very much doubt they think Port Everglades is ready to support Dream and Fantasy in early 2025.

ToTBellHop9 days ago

Could Magic be there year round until Triton 3 arrives? How committed are they to Galveston? Or just continue having Dream there in the winter and Magic in the summer.

Tiggerish9 days ago

Well, that sounds great, if you’re right I will look forward to sailing on the Fantasy more often!

LAKid539 days ago

That's surprising. Then the 3rd Tritan class ship must be going to Port Everglades. I can't believe DCL would pay all that money to redo the birth it acquired from Carnival just to have ships there not on a full time basis.

ToTBellHop9 days ago

FYI Port Canaveral announced that 3 ships will sail from PC in 2025 (for how long, we will see): Wish, Treasure, and Fantasy. Fantasy moves to a new schedule (I presume 5/5/4 or 8/6 nights). No real surprise—no shortage of people willing to add a cruise to a WDW trip.
