Which is the largest Disney Cruise Ship?

There are currently five Disney Cruise ships in the fleet.

Currently, the largest ship is the Disney Wish but that is set to change in 2025 when Disney will be launching a much much bigger new ship.

At the moment, there are 3 different “classes” of Disney ships:

  • The Classic Ships – Disney Magic and Disney Wonder
  • The Dream Class Ships – Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy
  • The Triton Class Ships – Disney Wish and Disney Treasure (due to launch in 2024).

There will be at least one more Triton Class ship in the fleet as this has already been ordered and will begin construction most likely in 2023 as it is due to be launched in 2025.

As yet there is no news on what the name of this Disney ship will be.

2025 will also see the launch of the new ship that Disney acquired which was already 75% completed when they purchased it.

This ship will be very much larger than any of the others in the Disney fleet. Not only that, but she will be one of the largest cruise ships in the World.

Disney Magic Cruise Ship – How Big is She?

Disney Magic was the first Disney Cruise Ship to be launched.

The Magic and Wonder are both known as the Classic ships.

The Magic was built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.

One fun fact is that she was built in two halves at two different locations of the Fincantieri shipyard. When each was completed they were carefully welded together. I

f you look at the exterior wall in the middle of the promenade Deck 4 you can see the welding join where the two halves were joined.

  • Gross Tonnage: 83969 GT
  • Ship Length: 984 feet
  • Beam: 106 feet
  • Draft: 25 feet
  • Max Speed: 25 mph (22 knots)
  • Launched: 1998
  • Capacity: 2,713 passengers
  • Crew Members: 945
  • Total on Board: 3,658
  • Total Staterooms: 875
  • Registered: Bahamas
  • Ship Cost: $400 Million

Disney Wonder Cruise Ship

The Wonder is almost identical in construction and capacity to Disney Magic.

However, the Wonder was not built in two halves as the Magic was. She was built in one shipyard location in one piece.

However, in accordance with the usual Disney attention to detail if you look at Deck 4 on the Wonder on the exterior wall in the middle of the deck you will see a join line.

This is in fact a fake welding line but was included to make it look like the real one on Disney Magic.

Gross Tonnage: 83969 GT
Ship Length: 984 feet
Beam: 106 feet
Draft: 25 feet
Max Speed: 25 mph (22 knots)
Launched: 1998
Capacity: 2,713 passengers
Crew Members: 945
Total on Board: 3,658
Total Staterooms: 875
Registered: Bahamas
Ship Cost: $450 Million

How Big Will the New Disney Ships Be?

There are 3 new Disney ships on the horizon. The Disney fleet will include 8 ships in 2025.

  • Disney Treasure 2024
  • Unnamed Disney Triton Class 2025
  • Purchased Global Dream 2022 for launch in 2025. Unknown name.

The Disney fleet of Cruise Ships is expanding rapidly. Whilst we had to wait more than a decade between the launch of the Fantasy and Wish, the next few years are going to see a huge expansion in the fleet.

It truly is a very exciting time for Disney Cruise fans!
