Disney Cruise Line is to build two more ships, due in 2021 and 2023 respectively.
“We pride ourselves on the unforgettable vacation experiences we deliver to our guests each and every day, and the expansion of our Disney fleet will allow us to create even more magical memories for families at sea and in incredible cruise destinations around the world,” said Robert A Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company.
The two new ships, which are as yet unnamed, will be larger than Disney’s newest vessels, the Dream and Fantasy, with about 1,250 cabins.
In a release, the company said that the news came during a time of high growth for its global portfolio.
“The expansion of Disney Cruise Line only adds to our excitement for the unprecedented growth taking place across our vacation destinations, from new Star Wars experiences coming to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts to the 25th anniversary of Disneyland Paris and the grand opening of our newest park, Shanghai Disney Resort,” added Bob Chapek, chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
