Get ready to charter a new course for adventure – the Disney Treasure is on the horizon.
On Tuesday, Disney Cruise Line debuted new details about its newest cruise ship that will be arriving in late 2024.
From bow to stern, the ship is set to showcase immersive family entertainment and experiences from some of Disney’s most legendary adventure stories including “Aladdin,” “Coco” and “Zootopia.” The Disney Treasure was first announced by Disney Cruise Line last year. The Disney Wish joined the cruise line in the summer of 2022, ushering three all-new Triton-class ships.
“The Disney Treasure will bring brand-new stories to life, blending one-of-a-kind experiences with the extraordinary entertainment, world-class dining and unparalleled hospitality that make every sailing so memorable,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Cruise Line. “As we chart a course for adventure, we’re so excited for families to discover the excitement and exploration that awaits onboard the sixth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet.”
The Disney Treasure is being designed with a brand-new motif, unlike anything Disney Cruise Line has done before. The signature atrium character statue, a Disney Cruise Line tradition, will be a shining, shimmering, splendid representation of Aladdin, Jasmine and Magic Carpet soaring together. The company said The Grand Hall will radiate the irresistible allure of adventure as soon as they step onboard the ship. Guests will also marvel as they see entertainment during select times during their cruise.
Take a look at what’s new onboard the new ship below.
One of the new dining experiences onboard the Disney Treasure is “Plaza de Coco.”
Inspired by the hit Disney and Pixar film “Coco,” the new entertainment and dining location will feature a central stage that is packed with live entertainment, show effects and traditional Mexican fare.

Disney Cruise Line said guests will get to enjoy the experience two different nights during their voyage.
“On the first night, the story of Miguel and his familia will continue where it left off on screen as they gather in Mariachi Plaza to take guests on a colorful, music-filled journey that celebrates family memories and togetherness. On the second night, Miguel will reunite with his great-great-grandparents, Hector and Mama Imelda, by transporting them to Santa Cecilia with the help of his magic guitar for a Día de los Muertos celebration,” Disney described in a news release.
Just like the Disney Treasure’s sister ship, the Disney Wish, the new ship will feature a Marvel dining experience onboard. Disney Cruise Line said the Marvel-themed experience will be different from the Wish and more details about the story will be released in the future.
The third dining location onboard the ship will be a returning favorite, 1923.
The ship will also have adult dining location favorites including The Rose, Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté.
For those guests looking for a sweet option while onboard, they will get the chance to step into the “Zootopia” inspired Jumbeaux’s Sweets.
“Surrounded by playful pink interiors, Victorian-style architecture and an endearing sculpture of Officer Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, guests will be served humor and heart by the cone full,” Disney Cruise Line described. The location will serve up more than 20 flavors of handmade gelato, 16 flavors of ice cream, sorbets, specialty treats, candies and more.
New lounges, cafés and entertainment
The Disney Treasure will be the first ship for Disney Cruise Line to pulsate with nostalgia from beloved theme park attractions. Two of these new experiences are happening in the ship’s unique lounges.
The Skipper Society will help bring the iconic Jungle Cruise attraction that guests have grown to love to the sea for the first time.
“The venue’s natural colorways and camp-style furnishings, paired with sly tributes to the trusty, dry-witted skippers, will offer an elevated, playful atmosphere,” Disney described in a news release. “Guests will discover references to the famous attraction throughout the space, from a whimsical monkey-shaped chandelier to postcards and luggage tags brought back from travels abroad.”
The new lounge will be serving themed cocktails and small food dishes as guests enjoy live entertainment. The Disney Wish has “The Bayou” which is a “Princess the Frog” themed location.
Meanwhile, get ready to dive deep and seek treasure at the “Periscope Pub,” The new lounge will be Disney Cruise Line’s first venue that pays tribute to the 1954 film “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”
“The design of the submarine-style interiors will call upon 19th-century steampunk influences with polished metals and industrial touches. A mysterious window into the depths of the uncharted oceans along the ceiling will make guests feel like Captain Nemo on the Nautilus, while a decorative statement rug in the center of the space will honor Captain Nemo’s fabled nemesis, the giant squid,” Disney described.
Just off the Grand Hall, guests will find two small casual walk-up cafes. At the Heihei Café, which was inspired by Moana, guests will see an area that was inspired by the Southern Pacific Isle of Montunui.
Meanwhile, the Jade Cricket Café, inspired by the classic Disney film “Mulan,” will honor the Fa Family’s “lucky” cricket, Cri-Kee, who will be represented by a jade sculpture on the bar top.
A multitude of daytime activities and adult-exclusive evening entertainment await guests at the “Lion King” inspired venue “Sarabi.” Disney said the open gathering place was inspired by the natural beauty of the pride lands in the hit Disney film.
At the Walt Disney Theater, guests will get to see the on-stage productions of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Disney Seas the Adventure.” The Disney Treasure will also have an all-new show that has yet to be announced. The company said more details will be revealed at a later date.
Up on the top deck, guests will splash into adventure on the AquaMouse: Curse of the Golden Egg. The new water slide attraction will plunge guests into the world of Mickey Mouse animated shorts. Onboard the Disney Treasure, AquaMouse will introduce a new story that follows Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on a zany misadventure into an ancient temple.
The Disney Treasure will have 1,256 staterooms onboard.
The ship’s rooms feature custom artwork and design elements that evoke the exploratory spirit of beloved Disney and Pixar films.
The Disney Treasure’s concierge-level suites will feature elegant interiors inspired by the majestic grasslands Simba calls home in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “The Lion King.” The design will feature themed artwork, mosaics and a harmonious color scheme.
Bagheera Royal Suites & Raja Royal Suites
Four royal suites will pay tribute to the faithful feline companions of daring Disney characters.
The upscale designs will include the Bagheera Royal Suites, honoring the noble panther from “The Jungle Book” and the lush forests he calls home, and the Rajah Royal Suites, themed to Princess Jasmine’s protective tiger who dwells in the royal palace of Agrabah in the classic Disney film “Aladdin.”
The luxurious accommodations aboard the Disney Treasure will strike an inviting balance between modern design and nostalgic charm with a fresh, natural color scheme and custom artwork that entices guests to peer beyond their staterooms into fantastical worlds from heartwarming Disney adventures.
Tomorrow Tower Suite
High in the ship’s forward funnel will be the Tomorrow Tower Suite. With nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, the Tomorrow Tower Suite will comfortably sleep eight guests and feature areas for eating, sleeping and playing, as well as other perks like a full kitchen and private elevator.
Disney Cruise Line said the suite will capture the same forward-thinking mindset that inspired the Walt Disney World Resort theme park, EPCOT, with an energetic design.
The Disney Treasure will embark on its maiden voyage, a seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida, on Dec. 21, 2024, followed by an inaugural season of seven-night itineraries to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral.
Disney Cruise Line Castaway Club members can book a Disney Treasure cruise as early as Sept. 12, and bookings will open to all guests on Sept. 20.
