Disney Cruise Line has announced that its sixth ship in the fleet will be called Disney Treasure, and also revealed it has started work on a second island destination.
The news was revealed at the company’s D23 Expo by Disney Parks, experiences and products chairman Josh D’Amaro.
Disney Treasure – a sister to Disney Wish and the second of three new ships planned through to 2025 – is scheduled for delivery in 2024.
The ship will be designed with a new motif, while the theme of adventure “will pave the way for epic experiences that immerse guests in some of the company’s most legendary stories”, the line said.
It will feature a Grand Hall, based on a gilded palace inspired by real-world influences from Asia and Africa while paying homage to the land of Agrabah from Aladdin.

D’Amaro said: “At the heart of every adventure, there’s a treasure, and we can’t wait for you to create memories aboard this spectacular ship.”
D’Amaro also shared that work has begun on Disney’s second island destination in the Bahamas, located on the island of Eleuthera at a place called Lighthouse Point.
The company is “working closely with Bahamian artists and advisers” to create a destination that “represents the natural beauty and rich culture of the Bahamas”, according to a statement.
Disney has committed to developing less than 20 per cent of the property and will supply 90 per cent of the site’s power from solar energy.
It also intends to use sustainable building practices and donate more than 190 acres of privately owned land to the government.
Disney Cruise Line will also operate cruises in Australia and New Zealand from late October 2023, on Disney Wonder.
D’Amaro added: “We are so glad to bring something new to those who may have never experienced this type of Disney magic before.”
