Disney Cruise Line, a unit of the US-based Walt Disney Company, revealed additional details about its three liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered ships it had ordered at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.

The three new ships will “offer more innovation, new technologies, spectacular entertainment and more Disney stories and characters than ever before,” the company said in a statement last week revealing an early rendering of the LNG-powered vessels.

Disney said the newbuilds will “embody the elegance and romance” of the so-called golden age of ocean cruising, but will also have “unique touches” of their own.

Each ship will be approximately 140,000 gross tons – slightly larger than the company’s vessels Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. Each vessel is currently planned to include about 1,250 guest staterooms.

Design plans, ship names and itineraries are still in development, the statement said.

Disney did not reveal additional info regarding the LNG propulsion saying only that LNG “is one of the cleanest-burning fuels available.”

Meyer Werft is expected to deliver the three ships in 2021, 2022 and 2023.
