Walt Disney Imagineering shared an update on Wednesday on the construction of the brand new cruise ship, the Disney wish.

The ship is currently scheduled to set sail on June 9, 2022 on its maiden voyage from Port Canaveral.

Imagineers said the ship’s construction in Germany had reached several key milestones in the past few months.

“After months of dedication and hard work, we were able to see the exterior of the ship being put together. From a structural point of view, the Disney Wish is almost finished! We continue to work on the Interior decoration, Cabin installations and ship commissioning, “said Philip Gennotte, Portfolio Project Management Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering Germany, on the blog.

“Each milestone not only represents another step towards bringing our newest ship to market next summer, but also represents the incredible team that made each milestone possible,” said Gennotte.


Last weekend, during a D23 fan event at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney announced: two brand new shows the guests on board the ship will experience.
