Calling all Disney fans! Mickey and friends are making Singapore their home soon - on a ship at least. A new Disney Cruise Line vessel will make Singapore its exclusive home port, in a partnership between the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and the cruise line. But, hold on - the cruise will only be available for booking in 2025. Fret not, here's what we know so far about the exciting venture.

The as-yet-unnamed ship will be the eighth and largest in the Disney Cruise Line fleet and also the largest cruise ship welcomed to Singapore's shores. The new ship will have an estimated passenger capacity of about 6,000 with about 2,300 crew members. 

The 208,000-gross-ton ship is expected to be among the first in the cruise industry to be fueled by green methanol, one of the lowest emission fuels, said STB and the cruise line in a joint press release.

2023 marks Disney's 100th anniversary, and the expansion to the cruise line is currently undergoing an "ambitious expansion" with new ships and new destinations around the world, said Josh D'Amaro, chairman of experiences and products for Disney Parks. 

"As we like to say, Disney Cruise Line is where magic meets the sea. For many guests, our ships, are the true destination," he added.

Passengers can look forward to themed restaurants, Broadway-style shows with interactive characters and Disney kid clubs. The ships also feature Mickey Mouse-inspired colours and signature red funnels. 

More details about the maiden voyage of the Singapore-based ship, itineraries and onboard experiences will be announced at a later date. So, watch out for our update once we know more!
