Mar 03, 2016 in "Walt Disney World Resorts"

At today's Walt Disney Company Shareholder meeting, Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced plans for two new Disney Cruise Line ships.

“We pride ourselves on the unforgettable vacation experiences we deliver to our guests each and every day, and the expansion of our Disney fleet will allow us to create even more magical memories for families at sea and in incredible cruise destinations around the world,” said Iger.

Disney has entered into a memorandum of agreement with Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany to complete the ships for 2021 and 2023.

Both new ships will be larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, at 135,000 gross tons and 1250 guest rooms. Names and itineraries are still to be determined.

“The expansion of Disney Cruise Line only adds to our excitement for the unprecedented growth taking place across our vacation destinations, from new Star Wars experiences coming to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts to the 25th anniversary of Disneyland Paris and the grand opening of our newest park, Shanghai Disney Resort,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
