Disney Cruise Line has announced that it will build another new cruise ship, expected to launch in 2022.
The announcement of the additional new ship was made at D23 in Anaheim on 15 July 2017. Disney Cruise Line now has three new build cruise ships on order, each being constructed at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.
On 29 April 2017, the 83,308 gross tonne cruise ship, Disney Wonder, became the first passenger vessel to sail through the new locks at the Panama Canal.
The new, larger locks at the Panama Canal opened in 2016 and allow larger vessels to transit through the 48-mile canal connecting the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean.
