Disney Shares Disney Wish Ship Construction Update

[DCL] The Disney Wish ship is currently under construction in Germany, and today Disney has given us an update on its construction.


The Disney Wish ship is currently under construction in Germany, and today Disney has given us an update on its construction. They've been working on building the ship for months, and today are sharing an update on two specific spaces the team is currently working on.

The wheelhouse, also known as "the bridge," is an incredibly important part of any ship. The captain and officers command the entire ship from this location. The wheelhouse for the Disney Wish is nearing completion and is part of a huge block to be installed on the ship in the building dock.



The second main building part of the Disney Wish, the entire foreship, has now been constructed.



Just installed is the impressive bow of the Disney Wish, where Captain Minnie will be featured in a beautifully designed medallion and filigree. As part of the shipyard’s high-tech block building principle, the bow block has been lifted and installed to reveal the graceful bow of the Disney Wish. This block is just one of nearly 100 total blocks, and the tip of the bow alone weighs an impressive 500 metric tons!





The entire process of lifting, installing and fully welding the bow block, while being suspended from the overhead gantry crane, took just under 10 hours. Following the successful installation of this bow block, there are just over 30 blocks remaining to be installed in the coming weeks to complete the Disney Wish in time for the ship’s maiden voyage.

The Disney Wish maiden voyage is due to take place in the Caribbean in June 2022.
