Everything We Know About the Disney Destiny

by | Mar 20, 2024 | Disney Cruise Line, Disney Destiny

Take a look at what’s in store for guests who cruise aboard the Disney Destiny, an exciting new addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet.

The Disney Cruise Line is adding another new ship! While we’re still eagerly awaiting the maiden voyages of the Disney Treasure and Disney Adventure, there’s already another ship under construction –– the Disney Destiny.

Disney Cruise Line first revealed the name and initial details of the Disney Destiny in March 2024. While this exciting new ship has been kept under wraps, it’s actually already under construction at the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. If you’re wondering what it’ll be like to set sail on the Disney Destiny, we’re sharing all of the details we know so far below.

The Disney Destiny is a Triton-Class Ship

In recent years, the Disney Cruise Line fleet has been expanding, and each new ship is more impressive than the last! All of the latest additions have been larger, with room for more passengers, more staterooms, and more of that incredible Disney magic at sea. 

The Disney Destiny will be a Triton-class ship, just like other recent ships. In fact, as a sister ship of the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure, it will be the third Triton-class ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet when it officially sets sail. 

Triton class cruise ships are, currently, the biggest ships of Disney Cruise Line. The three Triton-class ships are larger than the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy. Each one weighs 140,000 tons, with more space for everything onboard.

So, like its sibling ships, the Disney Destiny will likely feature a similar layout. However, the theming will be different –– each ship is special in its own way, and the Destiny will be no different, with unique dining options, incredible staterooms, and specially themed lounges and spaces.

The Disney Destiny Will Feature a Heroes and Villains Theme

Disney has already revealed the theming for the Disney Destiny, and it’s one that’s particularly thrilling: Heroes and Villains. This new cruise ship will feature a first-of-its-kind design theme to capture the legacies of beloved Disney stories and characters –– and their dynamic dualities.

Every great Disney story features duality, so the Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams took that idea and let it inspire the development of the Disney Destiny’s theming. Across the ship, the opposing forces of light and dark that drive characters will be reflected. Oh, and attractions will be represented too, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for the cool Heroes and Villains rides from Disney theme parks around the world that might appear in unique ways.

While onboard the Destiny, guests will encounter both heroes and villains. We aren’t yet sure which heroes and villains might appear, and in what forms. However, we do have some hints! Disney Parks Blog shared that guests will encounter heroes and villains from classic Walt Disney Animation films like The Lion King, Hercules, and One Hundred and One Dalmatians across the ship’s various spaces in the form of experiences, entertainment, and more.

Minnie Mouse Will Be Feature on the Destiny’s Bow

In addition to the “Heroes and Villains” theming of the Disney Destiny, certain characters will also get the unique honor of being featured on the ship’s bow and stern. Disney has revealed that this Disney Cruise Line ship will feature brand-new filigree artwork across its brow, with a depiction of Minnie Mouse at the center. 

The filigree artwork for the Disney Destiny’s bow will see Minnie transform into “Hero Minnie” in a heroic pose, wearing a cape that’s waving majestically in the sea breeze. She’s the bold leader who will take guests toward their vacation destinies.

When Will the Disney Destiny Set Sail?

It may be the youngest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, but the Disney Destiny is already well on its way in terms of construction! In March 2024, the Destiny had its keel laying ceremony, a maritime tradition meant to bring good luck that places a coin within the ship’s keel.

More construction updates and information about the Disney Destiny is sure to come in the months ahead. However, there will be some time before the ship sets sail!

Currently, the Disney Destiny is scheduled for delivery in 2025 –– which means the ship is likely to set sail on its maiden voyage that year.
