Last year’s the Disney cruise line announced that they would build two more ships at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, to enter service in 2021 and 2023.

However Disney has increased their order from two to three ships, revealing another new ship is set to enter service in 2022.

This latest 135,000-ton ship will be built at the same shipyard and launched the year in between the two previously announced vessels.

All three are designed to be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and have around 1,250 cabins, carrying upwards of 2,500 passengers, so slightly larger than the newest Disney cruise Line ships, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, launched back in 2011 and 2012.

The new names, design plans and itineraries will be announced at a later date.
