Disney Cruise Line, a unit of the US-based Walt Disney Company, has ordered three ships powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.

Disney Cruise Line last year ordered two cruise ships at Meyer Werft as part of its expansion plans.

The company said on Saturday it added another vessel to the order revealing that all of the ships will be powered by LNG.

The new delivery is scheduled for 2022, with the two previously announced ships due in 2021 and 2023.

All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences, according to Disney Cruise Line.

The three ships will be the same size – approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned – which is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

Disney Cruise Line did not reveal the price of the ships.

“We decided two ships wouldn’t be enough to hold all of the exciting new experiences we have been dreaming up to take family cruise vacations to a whole new level with immersive Disney storytelling, world-class family entertainment, and imaginative innovations that are fantastically fun and uniquely Disney,” Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said.
