Disney and Oriental Land have expanded their business partnership in Japan, announcing plans to launch a new Disney Cruise Line ship that will operate year round.

Starting in 2029, the plans are based on the potential growth of the cruise market in Japan, as well as the experience the company has gained in its theme park and hotel operations, and its strong relationship with the Disney Company.

The new partnership will see OLC build and operate a Disney-branded cruise ship, which will be the fourth Triton class ship in the Disney fleet.

According to a release, the new vessel will be 140,000 gross tons, powered by liquefied natural gas and have about 1,250 staterooms. The ship should be able to accommodate about 4,000 guests and 1,500 crew members.

Construction will take place at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany - the location of the upcoming Disney Treasure.

“I am sincerely proud that Disney and Oriental Land will be able to work together to create a world-class cruise business in Japan,” said Yumiko Takano, representative director, chairperson and CEO, Oriental Land.

“Oriental Land will use their know-how from the theme park business to continue pushing boundaries and provide family entertainment cruise experiences filled with inspiration and surprise.”
