Disney Wish Delays Maiden Voyage to July
Disney’s newest cruise ship the Disney Wish won’t be making its maiden voyage on time. Following a recent pause in sales, the first twelve sailings have been canceled and has had its maiden voyage pushed back to July 14, 2022.
Scott Gustin, who is quite a Disney insider himself shared the news on Twitter:
According to the Meyer Werft shipyard, the Omicron variant in Germany resulted in delays that impacted the delivery date of the ship. Impacted guests will be able to book a new date and receive a 50% discount.
The Disney Wish is the upcoming fifth cruise ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Inspired by the beauty of a fairytale castle, the Grand Hall makes a bold welcoming statement, setting the tone for an enchanted family vacation from the moment guests step onboard the Disney Wish. It is an idyllic setting for Cinderella, whose timeless story is the perfect example of magic transforming wishes into dreams and dreams into reality
The Disney Wish is the first of three new ships joining the Disney Cruise Line fleet through 2025. All three ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and, at approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
