Disney Destiny Cruise Ship Will Have ‘Heroes And Villains’ Theme



Disney Cruise Line
Disney Cruise Line on Wednesday announced details about its next ship, the Disney Destiny, including its Heroes and Villains design theme.
Disney said its Imagineering teams were inspired by the dynamic duality of every great Disney story, where opposing forces of light and dark drive characters to rise to their purpose.
Guests on board the Disney Destiny will encounter heroes and villains drawn from Disney stories, characters and theme park attractions, and will be able to embrace their own calling.
A video introducing the ship’s theme says that for each new ship, a commemorative coin is minted for luck, but the Disney Destiny’s ship goes missing. Captain Minnie searches for the coin, encountering heroes and villains from “The Lion King,” “Hercules” and “One Hundred and One Dalmatians.”
The company also unveiled the filigree artwork for the bow of the Disney Destiny, featuring Minnie Mouse striking a valiant pose in a heroic ensemble, her cape waving majestically in the sea breeze as she boldly leads guests toward their vacation destinies.
“The Disney Destiny will celebrate our most legendary Disney stories and characters, bringing them to life in new and exciting ways exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests,” Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Cruise Line, said in a statement. “As we continue to expand our fleet, the Disney Destiny will further strengthen our position as a leader in family cruising as we offer even more ways for families to experience Disney magic and world-class service at sea.”
The Disney Destiny reached a construction milestone on Wednesday with a keel-laying ceremony at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. It is expected to be delivered in 2025 to join its sister ships the Disney Wish and Disney Treasure.
