A closer look at the construction of the Disney Wish

Disney has given us a behind-the-scenes look at the construction of the Disney Wish from Germany. Just this past weekend we shared a first look at the all-new Little Mermaid stage show and other live entertainment on the Disney Wish.

Forward Funnel Installed

In July, the huge forward funnel was installed on the top deck. The iconic red funnels are unique to the Disney Cruise Line and one of my favorite details of the Disney fleet. They are sleek and graceful, reminiscent of classic ocean liners, with the Disney Cruise Line logo visible on each side.

Aboard the Disney Wish, the aft funnel houses the main engines’ exhaust pipes, and the forward funnel offers a truly unique and new experience — the Wish Tower Suite. This 2,000-foot penthouse in the sky will provide unparalleled views of the ocean. All that is left is outfitting the space.

Last Block Mounted

In August, Disney’s team of Imagineers at the Meyer Werft shipyard completed the momentous milestone of mounting the last block on the Disney Wish. As you can imagine, this was a special moment for our team. After months of dedication and hard work, we were able to see the exterior of the ship come together. The Disney Wish is nearly complete from a construction point of view! We continue to work on interior outfitting, cabin installations, and ship commissioning.

Stern Filigree Completed

Lastly, we have the completion of the “stern filigree.” The stern filigree proudly carries the name of the ship: Disney Wish. This is a preview of what is to come for the bow filigree, so stay tuned for future updates.
