ABOVE VIDEO: Disney Cruise Line’s brand new Disney Wish arrived early this morning with a water cannon salute and cheers from onlookers.
The long-awaited addition to the Port Canaveral based Disney fleet arrived before dawn this morning escorted by a flotilla of Port-based tugboats and the Port Canaveral Fire Rescue Fireboat 2 providing the traditional water cannon salute.
“We have anticipated this homecoming of the Disney Wish for some time and know that our entire Port community is excited to have her sailing from our Port,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray.
“We are proud of the longstanding partnership we have with Disney Cruise Line, and the arrival of the Disney Wish adds to the growing number of impressive cruise ships providing high quality guest experiences from our Port.”
The Disney Wish is powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas) and will be homeported at Port Canaveral—the only cruise port in North America to support LNG fueling of vessels.
The official Christening of the Disney Wish will take place on June 29, 2022, at 11 am ET. The event will be broadcast live on the Disney Parks Blog.
The inaugural season will feature 3- and 4- night cruises to The Bahamas with the 3-night sailings departing Port Canaveral on Fridays and the 4-night sailings departing on Mondays. Head over to Dreams Unlimited Travel to view a list of the itineraries and sailing dates.
