Today Disney Cruise Line shared some images of the Disney Wish which is still being constructed. These past months have been very exciting as Disney continues building the Disney Wish.
The Bridge is an incredibly important part of any ship. The captain and officers command the entire ship from this location. The Bridge for the Disney Wish is nearing completion and is part of a huge block to be installed on the ship in the building dock. We have all eagerly awaited this moment, as this block will truly give the Disney Wish an identity. The Bridge was very carefully designed both from a navigational and functional means but also from an aesthetical point of view. With the lifting and installation of this very large and very wide block, the next milestone in the impressive construction process is achieved.
All the Disney Cruise Line ships in the fleet have very elegant lines with sleek hulls and longbows, and the Disney Wish will certainly carry on this tradition. As the construction of Disney’s newest ship is progressing at full speed, another important milestone has been achieved. Just installed is the impressive bow of the Disney Wish, where Captain Minnie will be featured in a beautifully designed medallion and filigree. As part of the shipyard’s high-tech block building principle, the bow block has been lifted and installed to reveal the graceful bow of the Disney Wish. This block is just one of nearly 100 total blocks, and the tip of the bow alone weighs an impressive 500 metric tons! The entire process of lifting, installing and fully welding the bow block, while being suspended from the overhead gantry crane, took just under 10 hours.
