A new adventure is ready to embark on at Disney! Disney Cruise Line is debuting a new cruise ship called Disney Treasure. The new ship began its journey in January of 2023, and Disney has updated fans along the way. Disney Parks Blog is sharing the updates from January to now to get a glimpse into the building process of such a large ship.

The hope is that the ship will be ready to sail in 2024. As you can imagine, a lot goes into building a ship of this capacity. Each step is imperative to the completion of the cruise, and as a Disney ship, so is the detail. Now Disney is releasing its latest developments, inching closer to that sail date in 2024.

Disney Treasure

Starting January 19, 2023, Disney Treasure hit its first significant milestone, marking the official construction start date. “Sparks were flying as a special machine called a plasma cutter, which is housed within the yard’s laser cutting room, was used to cut the steel in the shape of a Disney cruise ship,” Disney Parks Blog reported.

Since January, Disney Treasure received its iconic red tunnels on February 9, 2023. To follow, on March 22, 2023, Disney Treasure got a delivery from Germany! The ship received its Floating Engine Room Unit, FERU, for short. “The FERU will serve as the main source of power, housing the main motors and liquified natural gas tanks,” Disney wrote.

Another exciting milestone was hit on March 30, 2023, with the Keel Laying Ceremony. The tradition is for “a newly minted coin is placed under the keel of the ship to foster good fortune for the ship and its crew in the years to come.” On April 15, 2023, Minnie Mouse joined in on the fun! Debuted was the Disney Treasure’s captivating bow filigree. Minnie the Voyager is featured in an adventure-ready ensemble.
