Disney Cruise Line has presented us with a few really cool images from the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Germany, sharing installation details of two specific parts of the Disney Wish, DCL’s fifth cruise ship.
First is the wheelhouse, also known as the bridge – a very important part of any ship.
Disney Cruise Line says that the bridge “is nearing completion and is part of a huge block to be installed on the ship in the building dock.” The team at the shipyard is very excited about this piece of the installation and they say that it gives the ship a “face.”
The Disney ships are known for their elegant lines with “sleek hulls and long bows” and the Disney Wish will follow in those footsteps. The bow block has already been lifted and installed and is one of approximately 100 blocks in total for the entire ship. The tip of the bow for the Disney Wish weighs approximately 500 metric tons!
Disney Cruise Line shared that there are still more than 30 blocks remaining to be installed and we sure hope that they continue to share these fascinating updates with us so we can share them with you!
