Disney Cruise Line reached a significant milestone in the construction of its next ship, the Disney Treasure, with the keel laying ceremony at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
During the ceremony and in keeping with a time-honoured maritime tradition, a newly minted coin was placed under the keel of the ship for good fortune. The commemorative coin used in the ceremony featured an etching of Captain Minnie Mouse donning a new look that embodies ship's adventure motif.
According to Meyer Werft, the keel laying ceremony on March 31 celebrated the start of hull assembly for the new cruise ship by placing the first component in the more than 500-metre-long covered building block. The so-called block for the ship's bow weighs 719 tons, is 30,9 metres in breadth, is 23,3 metres long and 12,6 metres high.
Disney Treasure is the second of three new class of ships for the cruise line - the first was Disney Wish, which set sail on its maiden voyage on July 14, 2022. All of the new ships will have 1,254 staterooms and run on liquefied natural gas.
As well as expanding its fleet with LNG-fueled ships, the Disney Cruise Line acquired the partially completed cruise ship Global Dream, one of the first in the cruise industry to be powered by green methanol. The ship is currently completing construction at Meyer Werft and is scheduled for delivery in 2025.
