Exciting news was announced today by Disney Cruise Line that the new cruise ship which they recently acquired will have its home port in Singapore.
DCL and the Singapore Tourism Board have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with an agreement to collaborate to bring the new Disney Cruise ship to its home port in Singapore for at least 5 years from 2025.
In a somewhat unexpected move, Disney Cruise Line bought the giant Global Dream, a 75% completed vessel that will be one of the largest cruise ships in the world.
Few details about the new Disney Cruise ship have been released but we have done extensive research and have a guide to some of the things that we think you can expect to see on this new Disney ship.
No details have yet been released about the itineraries or the maiden voyage – we would guess that we will be waiting until at least the summer of 2024 for these to be announced.
The joint announcement was made by Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro and Singapore’s Minister for Transport and Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations, S. Iswaran.
“This is a very exciting year for The Walt Disney Company — 2023 marks our 100th anniversary,” D’Amaro said. “As part of this, Disney Cruise Line is currently undergoing an ambitious expansion with new ships and new destinations around the world. We are incredibly excited to make Singapore the home port to our seventh-launched ship, which will sail from here year-round starting in 2025.”
DCL has once again chosen Meyer Werft for the project and the ship will be completed at the MV Werften shipyard in Wismar, Germany.
