The ship, which is set to embark on its maiden voyage July 14, sailed into its home port just before dawn.
“We have anticipated this homecoming of the Disney Wish for some time and know that our entire Port community is excited to have her sailing from our Port,” Port Chief Executive Officer Capt. John Murray said in a news release. “We are proud of the longstanding partnership we have with Disney Cruise Line, and the arrive of the Disney Wish adds to the growing number of impressive cruise ships providing high quality guest experiences from our Port.”
The Wish, built by German shipbuilding company Meyer Werft, is the fifth ship in Disney’s fleet. A christening ceremony for Disney Wish will be held June 29, followed by a preview sailing.
Aboard the Wish will be several new offerings, including a ride called the AquaMouse, restaurants themed to Marvel and “Frozen,” and an adults-only Star Wars-themed lounge.
The ship will also feature live stage shows, a sports arena and areas just for children.
Disney Wish, which is powered by liquefied natural gas, is the first of three new Triton-class ships that will join the Disney Cruise Line fleet through 2025.
The ship will conduct three- and four-night sailings to the Bahamas and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, taking over the itinerary of Disney Dream, which left Port Canaveral after more than 10 years of calling the port home to make way for the Wish.
