Disney Cruise Line to Expand with a Seventh New Ship

Disney Cruise Line upped its newbuild order at Meyer Werft with a third ship and revealed all three will be powered by LNG.

The company a year ago revealed plans to build two new ships, with estimated finish dates of 2021 and 2023.

Few details about the new ships were given, except to say that each would have about 1,250 staterooms, slightly larger than Disney's newest ships, according to a news release.

Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced the plan at the D23 Expo, the official Disney fan club gathering, in Anaheim, California.
