Disney Cruise Tips: Basic Information

Disney Cruise Line currently operates four ships, with several more on the way: the Disney Magic, which launched in 1998; the Disney Wonder, which launched in 1999; the Disney Dream, which launched January 2011; and the Disney Fantasy, which launched March 2012.

The newest ship, the Disney Wish, will start sailing in July 2022. Two more ships, as yet unnamed, have been ordered from the shipyard and will debut in coming years.

The Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder are very similar to each other, except for the interior design (Art Deco for the Magic, Art Nouveau for the Wonder) and a few differently-themed bars. Both are 83,000-ton vessels with 875 staterooms (2,400 passengers maximum).

The Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy are also very similar to each other, except for the interior design (Art Deco for the Disney Dream, Art Nouveau for the Disney Fantasy), plus some additional water features, differently-themed bars and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on the Fantasy. Both are 122,000 tons and two decks taller than the older ships, with 1,250 staterooms (4,000 passengers maximum).

The Disney Wish will be somewhat similar in size and layout to the Disney Dream and Fantasy. It follows a “storybook castle” interior design. It has three all-new restaurants for main dining: an Arendelle-themed one with a live musical show starring Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff from Frozen; an Art Deco Hollywood themed restaurant called 1923; and a Marvel-themed restaurant that promises to wow diners with high-tech effects.
