Three Instead of Two by Meyer Werft in Germany
Disney Cruise Line has added a third to its order for new cruise ships to be built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, according to a Meyer Werft announcement.
All three vessels are to be LNG-fueled.
Disney ordered two vessels last year with completion dates of 2021 and 2023.
“The seventh ship will be built at the same shipyard and is scheduled to be completed in 2022,” Meyer Werft says.
“All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development,” the shipyaes announcement states. “The three new ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and be the same size,” the yard says: approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest planned staterooms.
“We decided two ships wouldn’t be enough,” Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Bob Chapek says in the Meyer Werft announcement.
“By the time all three new ships are sailing, we’ll have nearly doubled the size of our existing fleet,” he said.
