Disney orders seventh cruise ship

Walt Disney Company has added another ship to the existing order of two new vessels with Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany

The new vessel will become the line's seventh.

Speaking at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, chairman Bob Chapek said: "We decided two ships wouldn't be enough to hold all of the exciting new experiences we have been dreaming up to take family cruise vacations to a whole new level.

"By the time all three new ships are sailing, we'll have nearly doubled the size of our existing fleet."

No specific details have been disclosed yet on the design or specific amenities of the three new ships but the company said they will 'usher in the next generation of innovative cruise experiences designed especially for families that will transform the art-of-cruising and take guests on adventures in a way never dreamed of before'.

Those first two ships have expected completion dates of 2021 and 2023.
