In keeping with maritime tradition, Philip Gennotte, portfolio project management executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Germany placed a lucky coin under the keel of the new ship before the shipyard gave the signal to lower the block onto the bracing and coin.
“The Disney Treasure will once again be a ship that will be constucted with Meyer quality and once again meet Disney’s high standards for entertainment and equipment. With the keel laying, we have now reached an important milestone in this respect,” says Jan Meyer, Managing Director of Meyer Werft.
The new ship for Disney Cruise Line will have 1,240 cabins and a size of 144,000 GT. Completion of the Disney Treasure is scheduled for 2024. Beyond Disney Wish, Meyer Werft already delivered the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy to Disney Cruise Line in 2010 and 2012.
