Disney Cruise Line shared an update for their newest cruise ship, Disney Treasure, which is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard.
The images show the installation of the ship’s bridge block, marking an important milestone in the construction of Disney Treasure.
The Triton-class ship is a sister ship of Disney Wish and is set to debut in 2024.
Disney Cruise Line Shares Update For Disney Treasure
Disney Cruise Line has shared new images of the construction of Disney Treasure. The new images show the bridge block installation at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
The bridge block houses the key navigational equipment for the vessel where the captain and crew navigate the ship.
Construction of the new cruise ship began in January 2023 and has proceeded at a record pace.
Disney has been documenting the progress of the build, releasing photos throughout the ship’s construction. We first saw the ship’s bow thrusters back in March and got our first look at the keel-laying ceremony in April.
In May, we got our first look at what will become the Walt Disney Theatre. The mega-theatre will continue the cruise line’s promise of delivering incredible nightly entertainment for passengers.
With the installation of the bridge block, the shipyard has installed most of the large block sections.
With most of the block sections in place, construction crews will look inward as they construct the ship’s interior settings.
Disney Treasure to Debut in 2024
Disney Treasure is the second Triton-class vessel in Disney’s fleet and the sister ship of the much-applauded Disney Wish. The cruise ship is set to debut in 2024, with a third unnamed cruise ship joining the fleet in 2025.
The vessel is powered by liquified natural gas (LNG), which is estimated to be up to 30% more fuel efficient and reduce greenhouse gases by up to 20% compared to traditional cruise ship engines. (Source)
Disney Treasure can accommodate 4,000 passengers in 1,254 cabins. The 144,000 gross-ton vessel is manned by 1,555 crew members who provide a magical experience for guests.
The ship’s centerpiece is the grand hall taking inspiration from the Disney classic Aladdin.
