Disney Cruise Line may be making some major announcements soon! Disney Cruise Line is rumored to be adding two new cruise ships to their current fleet of four ships. One ship is expected to be added in 2015 and another in 2016. These new ships are planned to be mid-size, meaning they will be larger than the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder ships, but smaller than the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream ships.
Although nothing has been confirmed by Disney officials, it looks promising that we will see two brand new Disney cruise ships within the next three years! Disney has a “Monstrous Summer” press event planned for April 25 and 26 which according to invitations will include Disney Cruise Line news.
The other major change being speculated about with Disney Cruise Line is that the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder ships may be scheduled to under-go major renovations, including a make-over and other enhancements. Both of these ships have already been upgraded multiple times and the Disney Magic is already scheduled for a six-week refurbishment later this year.
There are numerous reasons for Disney to expand Disney Cruise Line due to its wonderful success. Disney Cruise Line just received top honors earlier this year. You can see some of these awards here. Disney Cruise Line already has thousands of guests sailing aboard their two newest ships every week. Disney Parks and Resorts even received a 3% revenue increase in 2011 over 2010 as a result of the addition of the Disney Dream ship. The success of the Disney Fantasy in the Disney Cruise Line fleet should also further encourage Disney to continue expanding.
What do you think Disney should change or add to their ships? What do you think is essential to keep the same on the ships that Disney already does right? What do you think Disney should name these potential new ships?

The Disney Fantasy left Port Canaveral, Florida on Saturday, April 6, 2013 to embark on a seven day Caribbean cruise. The ship left the dock around 5:00 p.m. EST, but returned just three and a half hours later at 8:30 p.m. EST. They were forced to return because two passengers needed medical attention due to previously existing medical conditions.
In honor of National Literacy Month in March, Disney Cruise Line crew members visited schoolchildren in ports of call as part of the Reading Together educational outreach program. The crew visited schools in Grand Cayman, St. Thomas and Nassau to promote literacy and inspire children to enjoy reading.
The Disney Cruise Line Reading Together program launched 10 years ago, and since then, crew members have visited schools across The Bahamas and U.S. Virgin Islands to share stories and get children excited about reading.
“Disney is a company built on storytelling and imagination, so it’s a great fit for Disney Cruise Line to have a Reading Together program where our crew read and inspire children in their local school,” said Rena Langley, vice president of Public Affairs for Disney Cruise Line. “This is another way we become involved in the ports we call home each year.”
In addition to the Reading Together program, crew members also deliver donations of Disney children’s books to schools in to promote reading and help increase reading comprehension scores in classrooms. Since 2003 Disney Cruise Line donated enough books to impact more than 7,000 children across The Bahamas and Caribbean.
There’s been more trouble in Disney’s pools this week. However, this time was on a Disney Cruise Line ship instead of Disney World. A four-year-old boy was pulled out of one of the pools on a Disney Cruise Line ship and airlifted to a hospital.
The boy’s family was planning to sail on Disney Cruise Line’s Fantasy ship for a seven-day Western Caribbean cruise. The family had just boarded the ship in Port Canaveral, Florida and decided to head straight one of the ship’s three pools. According to officials, Brevard County and Disney rescue workers responded to the ship around 3:30 p.m. for a potential drowning at the family pool. Port Canaveral police reported that they found the boy “in distress” when they arrived. The boy was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Port Canaveral and then airlifted by medical helicopter to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, Florida.
