Last year, Disney sent its first ship, Disney Wonder to cruise in Australia and New Zealand.

Disney purchased Global Dream, a 208,000 gross tonne ship in November 2022 when it was previously owned by Genting Hong Kong when the company went into administration. Then the 70 per cent complete Global Dream was supposed to accommodate 9000 passengers.

What’s onboard

Under Disney’s plans, the ship will be reimagined in line with Disney fleet with the iconic Mickey Mouse-inspired exterior, themed restaurants, Disney animation at Animator’s Palate and dazzling musicals like Frozen at the Walt Disney Theatre. Disney Adventure can accommodate up to 6000 passengers and will be the largest in the Disney fleet as Disney Wish and Disney Treasure, each has capacity for 5000 guests.
