Disney Cruise Line has reached a significant milestone in constructing its newest cruise ship, the Disney Treasure. Recently, the iconic forward and aft funnels were installed atop the ship, a key step in bringing this much-anticipated vessel closer to completion.

The installation occurred at the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Germany, where the Disney Treasure is under construction. Despite the approaching holiday season, work on the ship has not slowed down. The addition of the funnels, complete with a coat of primer paint, is not just a visual hallmark of the Disney Cruise Line fleet but also signals a major step towards completing the Disney Treasure.

The Disney Treasure is set to be an adventure-themed ship, following the layout of the Disney Wish, which was launched in 2022. In a departure from the “Star Wars”-inspired Hyperspace Lounge on the Disney Wish, the Disney Treasure will feature the Haunted Mansion Parlor. This new addition will include exclusive merchandise and specialty drinks, adding a unique flavor to the cruise experience.

The new Disney cruise ship will also host the Skipper Society Lounge inspired by the “Jungle Cruise,” The Periscope Pub inspired by “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” Jack Cricket Café, and Heihei Café. For entertainment, the Disney Treasure will offer a “Disney: The Tale of Moana” Broadway-style show, along with other existing Disney Cruise Line shows like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Disney Seas the Adventure.”

The ship will also have its version of the AquaMouse, a 760-foot-long water attraction that debuted on the Disney Wish, and the central hub for daily activities will be the “The Lion King”-inspired Sarabi lounge.

Interestingly, the funnels on Disney Treasure are not just for aesthetics. The funnels play an integral part in the ship’s attractions. Guests can plunge through the forward funnel while experiencing the AquaMouse, Disney’s water-coaster thrill ride. Additionally, there will be a unique accommodation option inside the funnel – the two-story EPCOT-themed Tomorrow Tower Suite, providing guests with a unique experience.

The 4,000-passenger Disney Treasure is scheduled to embark on its maiden voyage on December 21, 2024, with Caribbean sailings departing from Port Canaveral, Florida. Disney Cruise Line’s log will track its progress as the ship continues to take shape, keeping future guests and enthusiasts updated until its much-anticipated launch.
