Live from Port Canaveral, Florida on June 29, Disney will live stream the christening of the Disney Wish, the newest ship to join the Disney Cruise Line fleet.

The event will include an exclusive look inside some of the ship's most highly anticipated features — like AquaMouse, the first-ever Disney attraction at sea; first-of-their-kind dining adventures themed to “Frozen” and Marvel; an immersive lounge set in the Star Wars galaxy; and a real-life wonderland for kids at Disney's Oceaneer Club.

Check back here on June 29 2022 at 11am ET for the live event.

I can't disagree with you. I'm booked on the Wish in September, and I have a feeling it'll be a one-and-done for me. While the atrium looks impressive, its also very different than the other ships. I'm totally underwhelmed by the photos I've seen of the Star Wars lounge, I can only hope that it looks better in person. The Magic is still my favorite of the DCL ships (and it wasn't the first one that I sailed on).

I think Disney was trying to go after a more modern/luxurious vibe compared to their other ships and they definitely achieved that. Is it perfect? No. But it's a definite step up from the other 4 ships in terms of market they are trying to reach.

The more I see I guess I’m getting a little less excited. It seems some of the theming is disjointed and random, overdone in some areas and underdone in others. The Star Wars bar isn’t nearly as cool as what I thought it would be but at least the $5000 cocktail comes with some extras. The waterslide is just okay. The whole thing kind of reeks of Disney again catering to the ultra wealthy esp w/ the in funnel two-story villa, twice a number of concierge rooms and all the other things that most people won’t ever see again. I think for now until there are more cohesive pictures and real reviews, we will probably stick to the older ships. We much prefer the art nouveau and art deco decor anyway over the over the top IP injected theming of the wish.

So it’s basically a post cruise, $5,000 excursion that comes with gifts while on the cruise 😮

Details on the 5k Kaiburr Crystal cocktail - "According to a bartender in the lounge, the galactic beverage is primarily made with Camus cognac. It also includes the Japanese citrus fruit, yuzu, as well as kumquat. Apparently, ritzy cocktails can never have enough cognac, because the Kaiburr Crystal also features Grand Marnier Quintessence, which is considerably pricier than Camus cognac. Speaking of pricey, the bartenders add shots of ultra-expensive Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 Year bourbon and Taylor's Fladgate Kingsman Edition Very Old Tawny Port. Guests get to keep the silver plated glasses in which the drinks are served. (But not, alas, the cool Star Wars container gizmo.) They also get amenities delivered to their staterooms, including flowers and personalized sparkling wine from Skywalker Vineyards, the wine estate owned by none other than Mr. “Star Wars,” George Lucas. They can check out the grapes that made the wine, because the $5,000 package includes a visit to the vineyard, which is located at Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, California. Tours are not otherwise available to the public." https://www.aboutthemeparks.fun/p/whats-in-the-most-expensive-drink

I was expecting a projection tunnel based on the shape of the tunnel outside, similar to the island to underwater transition in MMRR, but it is a tube that is at least 10 feet across, so you can’t do much. Just wish they utilized the space in a more immersive way. If it was a faster lift hill, I’d like it better but the pacing is off.

I kinda hoped it would be a bit cooler then that...
