Meyer Group today announced it will build a fourth Disney Wish-class ship, which will operate in Japan. The newbuild follows the Disney Wish, Treasure and Destiny, according to a press release from the German shipyard.

Under the recently signed agreement, Oriental Land Company (OLC) will build and operate the Disney-branded cruise business in Japan.

According to a spokesperson, OLC is building and operating the new ship in Japan.

Bernard Meyer signed the shipbuilding contract today in Tokyo.

The new ship is scheduled to be delivered in 2028.

Oriental Land Company, which operates the Disney theme parks in Japan, is expected to commence operation of the ship by early 2029.

“I am very happy to sign this contract today and win OLC as a new customer from Japan. This order contributes to the long term development of shipbuilding in Papenburg,” said Meyer.

“With this new order, we look forward to continuing our relationship with Disney and working with Oriental Land Company, which also has a long-standing relationship with Disney, as a new customer. This is a strong signal for shipbuilding in Papenburg and shows that companies from all over the world rely on the quality of Meyer Werft,” added Bernd Eikens, CEO of Meyer Group.

“We have long-term relationships with both Meyer Werft and the Oriental Land Company. We are delighted to be working with both of them to create a Disney cruise experience for the Japanese market,” added Thomas Mazloum, president, Disney Signature Experiences.

Meyer Werft already delivered the Disney Wish, the first ship in the Wish class, to Disney Cruise Line in 2022. The two sister ships Disney Treasure and Disney Destiny are already under construction in Papenburg and will be delivered in 2024 and 2025.
