Disney Cruise Line will build the second LNG-powered ship in the family business Meyer Werft shipyard.

Disney teams up with Meyer Werft as construction of the new cruise ship Disney Treasure has now begun with the keel laying ceremony. In keeping with maritime tradition, Philip Gennotte, portfolio project management executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Germany, placed a lucky coin under the keel of the new ship before the shipyard gave the signal to lower the block onto the bracing and coin.

The Papenburg-based Meyer Werft founded in 1795 and is in its seventh generation of family ownership, said the ship, like her sister Disney Wish delivered last year, will be equipped with low-emission LNG propulsion.

The two partners have celebrated the start of hull assembly for the new cruise ship Disney Treasure by placing the first component in the more than 500-metre-long covered building dock. The so-called block for the ship’s bow weighs 719 tons, is 30,9 metres breadth and 23,3 metres long. The height is 12,6 metres.

“The Disney Treasure will once again be a ship that will be constructed with MEYER quality and once again meet Disney’s high standards for entertainment and equipment.

With the keel laying, we have now reached an important milestone in this respect,” says Jan Meyer, Managing Director of Meyer Werft.  

The new ship will have 1,240 cabins and a size of 144,000 gross tonnage. The company expects completion of the Disney Treasure in 2024.

The shipyard, expect the ship “Disney Wish” has already delivered the “Disney Dream” and the “Disney Fantasy” to Disney Cruise Line in 2010 and 2012.
