The Disney Treasure cruise ship (Disney Cruise Line’s newest addition to the fleet) is officially revealed! Details about the ship were featured in its grand reveal video, which weaved a unique story of an adventurous treasure hunter who finds the real treasure is spending time with the people you love and the memories you make. The Disney Treasure is the sixth ship to join the DCL family and will depart on its maiden voyage in December 2024. Here’s what we know about the ship so far:
Design and Theming
Charles Muntz from Up! could have written this ship’s motto. His exclamation, “Adventure is out there!” fits this ship perfectly. The Treasure will celebrate the adventure and wonder of Disney stories like Aladdin, Moana, Mulan, Coco, Encanto, The Lion King, and Pocahontas. When you arrive on the ship and enter the Grand Hall, you’ll be greeted by a golden statue of Aladdin and Jasmine on their famous magic carpet ride. The entire hall will be inspired by the architecture of Jasmine’s palace in Agrabah.
The Disney Treasure cruise ship will also be the first in the fleet to bring elements from the theme parks to sea (which we discuss in detail below).
Tons of dining details were shared during the ship’s grand reveal. DCL’s signature rotational dining will return on this ship, allowing you to alternate between three primary dining locations each night of your cruise. Depending on your itinerary, you could experience these locations more than once.
The Disney Treasure cruise ship will feature the first-ever Coco-themed dining experience. Plaza de Coco will be a theater-in-the-round dining adventure (similar to Arendelle on the Disney Wish). On the first night at Plaza de Coco, you’ll be treated to the sights and sounds of traditional Mexican music, including a Mariachi band, while celebrating with the Rivera family. On the second night, the space will transform into a Día de los Muertos celebration, where you’ll be reunited with Coco’s relatives, Hector and Mama Imelda.
The second rotational dining location will be a Marvel-themed eatery. A similar restaurant premiered on the Disney Wish, which features appearances by Ant-Man and the Wasp showcasing the capabilities of Quantum Core technology, which allows foods to grow and shrink. The second night of dinner in this restaurant will follow a brand new adventure.
The other rotational dining location is 1923, which also premiered on the Wish and is named after the year Walt Disney Studios was founded. This restaurant features upscale art-deco decor and is filled with sketches and memorabilia from Disney animated classics. It serves Californian cuisine.
Snacks, Treats, & Buffets
The Disney Treasure will have plenty of places to grab a quick bite, enjoy a frozen treat, or relax in adult-only lounges. Jumbeaux’s Sweets, a Zootopia-themed dessert shop, will include 35 flavors of homemade gelato, as well as ice cream and sorbet. The shop’s centerpiece will be a statue of Officer Hopps and Nick Wilde. Two of the coffee shops onboard will feature famous Disney heroines: Moana and Mulan.
Several buffet-style eateries will return aboard the Disney Treasure cruise ship. These include Marceline Market and Mickey & Friends Festival of Foods.
We’re excited about the lounges inspired by classic Disney theme park attractions: the Jungle Cruise, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and the Haunted Mansion.
Skipper Society will be just off the Grand Hall and feature themed cocktails and snacks based on the adventures of the ride’s famous skippers. The lounge will feature old-fashioned lanterns hanging from the walls, along with vines and foliage growing out of the ceiling. They promise to have plenty of puns woven into the architecture and menu.
Periscope Pub is based on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, one of Walt Disney World’s opening attractions that closed in 1994. The lounge will make you feel like you’ve climbed aboard the Nautilus submarine and feature modern steampunk elements. It’ll be a different kind of under-the-sea adventure than the one Sebastian sings about in The Little Mermaid!
The Haunted Mansion Parlor will bring “spirits” to a whole new level. Artist renderings show the bar will feature an interactive mirror where some of the 999 happy haunts will greet you as you enjoy a drink, a green-glowing fireplace, the mansion’s famous purple wallpaper, and the “hidden Donald” chair.
In addition to the adult lounges showcased above, the adult-only dining locations The Rose, Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallament, and Palo Steakhouse will return on the Disney Treasure. These restaurants need reservations to attend and book up quickly. There will also be an adult-only infinity pool and bar, a salon, and a barber.
Activities & Attractions
Sarabi, named after Simba’s mom in The Lion King, will be the hub for family entertainment on the ship during the day. At night, the stage and seating space will include adult entertainment. AquaMouse: Curse of the Golden Egg is an onboard water ride that propels you through clear tunnels high above the ship’s top decks. While a similar attraction is featured on the Wish, the Treasure will feature an exclusive Mickey short where Mickey and Minnie will explore a hidden temple and have you come along for the ride.
The Walt Disney Theater will feature Broadway-style shows, including an all-new production of Beauty and the Beast (based on the film’s live-action version) and Disney Seas the Adventure. DCL’s famous Pirate Night will also happen on select itineraries on the Disney Treasure. No Disney cruise would be complete without a fireworks display, which usually occurs during the ship’s pirate night.
DCL has one of the best kid programs of any major cruise line. The interactive Oceaneer Club encourages children ages 3 through 12 to use their imaginations while learning how to be a superhero at the Marvel Training Academy, design their own Disney attraction at the Imagineering Lab, take care of the creatures found across the galaxy at Star Wars Cargo Bay, and snap photos with princesses at the Princess Fairytale Hall. There are also spaces uniquely designed for teens and tweens, Edge and Vibe. These hangouts offer a place for teens to mix and mingle while watching movies on big-screen TVs and playing video games. For littles, there’s the adorably decorated It’s a Small World Nursery. There’s also a new Mickey and Friends-themed district with seven pools and a Toy Story-themed splash zone.
The Disney Treasure cruise ship will be similar to the Wish in size. There will be 1,246 staterooms with room for 4,000 passengers. The ship will have more outside rooms than any in the DCL fleet—90%, in fact. Many rooms have verandas, giving each stateroom an open and airy feel. The rooms will feature custom artwork that recreates scenes from Disney classics like Aladdin, Pocahontas, Encanto, The Jungle Book, and The Lion King.
The suites aboard the Disney Treasure are remarkable. The ship’s Royal Suite will feature one of four themes inspired by Disney feline friends like Rajah and Bagheera.
The most luxurious suite onboard is the Tomorrow Tower, which pays homage to the geometrical shapes and positive outlook of the future showcased at EPCOT. The 2,000-square-foot suite sits inside the funnel closest to the bow and has an elevator and full kitchen.
The Disney Treasure cruise ship will sail out of Port Canaveral, Florida, for seven-night cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean. The ship’s first sailing is a Christmas cruise departing on December 21, 2024. Port destinations include:
