Fodor’s Expert Review
For Disney enthusiasts and families traveling with children, especially younger ones, a Disney cruise is a dream vacation. Disney cruises are known as the gold standard for their kid-friendly amenities, and Wish, the fifth ship in the Disney Cruise Line and the largest by far, does not disappoint. The first new Disney cruise ship in a decade, Wish debuted in July 2022 with impressive new features like a splashy waterpark ride, the cruise line’s first indoor basketball court, top-tier kids clubs, as well as additional Star Wars, Frozen, and Marvel-inspired experiences.Read More
Passengers aboard Wish, the first of Disney’s Triton class ships, will feel like they’ve been transported into a fairy tale from the moment they step on board at the Grand Hall, where they’re handed a magic wand and greeted by a bronze statue of Cinderella. The elegant entrance features a shimmering crystal chandelier and the Disney Cruise Line’s first-ever atrium stage, surrounded by ornate balconies that feature an exquisite mosaic from the Cinderella fairy tale. The balconies also house the guest services area, allowing adults to take care of necessary details while kids are entertained by what’s happening on stage.
Entertainment aboard Disney Wish is world-class, with Broadway-caliber productions in a state-of-the-art theater and first-run movies offered in two smaller theaters. All these experiences contribute to Wish feeling like a floating theme park, with amusements for every age and interest.
