Disney Cruise Line reveals name of sixth ship: Travel Weekly

At the D23 Expo in Anaheim on Sunday, Disney Parks chairman Josh D’Amaro revealed initial details about the sixth Disney Cruise Line ship, including its name — Disney Treasure. 

The Disney Treasure is scheduled to be delivered in 2024. D’Amaro said the theme of the ship will be adventure, “celebrating Walt Disney’s lifelong love of exploration.”

A video shown at the expo revealed what the Treasure’s Grand Hall will look like. The signature Grand Hall statue will depict characters from the Disney animated film “Aladdin” — Jasmine, Aladdin and their magic carpet.

“The Grand Hall is inspired by the grandeur and mystery of a gilded palace,” D’Amaro said. “It draws on real-world influences from Asia and from Africa, as well as the far-off land of Agrabah.”

Disney will sail in Australia for the first time

D’Amaro made a couple other cruise announcements at D23. For the first time, a Disney ship will sail Australia and New Zealand cruises. The Disney Wonder will begin sailing these voyages in October 2023.

The Wonder’s repositioning cruises also will bring Disney to a new destination — the South Pacific. Guests on these voyages will visit Fiji and Samoa among other ports of call, D’Amaro said.

Lighthouse Point is slated to open in 2024.

Finally, D’Amaro provided an update on Lighthouse Point, a private destination Disney is building on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera. Lighthouse Point will draw 90% of its power from solar energy, D’Amaro said. Disney revealed renderings of the island, with D’Amaro saying there will be a focus on the island’s natural beauty the the culture of the Bahamas. Lighthouse Point is expected to open in 2024.
