NEWS: First Look at the First Look at First-Ever Disney Cruise Line Funnel Suite

In summer 2022, the Disney Wish will sail its inaugural season of three- and four-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, from its new home port of Port Canaveral, Florida. The highly anticipated fifth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet will greet its first guests on June 9, 2022. Disney is releasing more information that is getting us excited about the amazing accommodations on the ship. Learn more below.





 

Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Evily Giannopoulos Peros:

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It’s calling you home to the Wish Tower Suite, a first-of-its-kind accommodation set high in the forward funnel of the Disney Wish, our newest ship setting sail in summer 2022!

This 1,966-square-foot penthouse in the sky will be our most unique Disney Cruise Lineaccommodation yet, and it’s the crown jewel of a truly jaw-dropping array of staterooms and suites aboard the Disney Wish. Every storybook-inspired stateroom on this ship will be a luxurious, peaceful retreat designed with ample room for families, plenty of storage and upscale amenities. So no matter which you choose, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect home-away-from-home for your family.

Isn’t it gorgeous? With nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, including a spacious upper-level loft, the Wish Tower Suite will sleep up to eight guests with two main bedrooms, a children’s room, a library that converts to a bedroom and four-and-a-half bathrooms. The magnificent living room will be flanked by an open dining area, a large pantry and a bar, all offering extraordinary views across the upper decks to the horizon through an expansive two-story window wall.

What’s more, this enchanting new suite will feature artwork, iconography and materials inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana.” Throughout the suite, creative ornaments and custom artwork will offer sophisticated nods to the characters and locales of this beloved film.

The piece de resistance will be a hand-crafted porcelain sculpture that comes alive in an only-Disney-can-do way. When guests arrive home to the Wish Tower Suite, they may discover the statue pulsing in myriad hues of green amid soft chimes that recall the film’s distinctive soundtrack, revealing itself as the heart of Te Fiti. The special lighting and audio effects will eventually fill the room to provide a truly magical, one-of-a-kind greeting.

Of course, guests can expect the royal treatment while staying in the Wish Tower Suite, marked by the expert service of a personal concierge team, a delightful selection of curated services and daily treats, and even a private elevator. Talk about the VIP experience!

So what can I say except, you’re welcome… for adding a new line to your bucket list!
