Disney Cruise Line is reportedly considering the purchase of Global Dream, previously ordered by Genting Hong Kong to become part of Dream Cruises fleet in 2024. The reported Disney Global Dream purchase comes after Dream Cruises ceased operations earlier this year when their parent company Genting Cruise Lines went into administration.

German Lawyer Christoph Morgen has reported that negotiations are ongoing for the sale of Global Dream and German media outlet NDR says initial speculation is that the ship, which is Asian themed, will be used by Disney to sail in Asia. 

The ship is 208,000 tonnes and is set to be able to accommodate 9,500 passengers. Dream Cruises plan was to have the largest roller coaster at sea onboard, as well as an expansive casino. The passenger capacity would make it the worlds largest cruise ship, although the gross tonnage is below that of Royal Caribbeans largest ships. 

TradeWinds reports that if the Disney Global Dream purchase is complete, the ship will likely undergo an extensive design revamp, requiring more work than what was initially ordered. 

The ship was 75% finished when shipyard MV Werften shut down, with NDR now suggesting that a buyer who will finish production in Germany is favoured. Construction now looks set for completion in Wismar, via the direction of Meyer shipyard in Papenburg, where three ships have previously been built for Disney Cruise Line. 

There is not yet any information on the price of the vessel, however, it can be assumed to be significantly lower than the $2.55 billion construction price.
