The cruise line has ordered another new cruise ship to be built and once in service, it will be the seventh in the fleet.

Disney Cruise Line has surprised with an announcement of a seventh new cruise ship to be built.

The new delivery is scheduled for 2022, and joins ships announced previous year that are due in 2021 and 2023.

During this weekend's D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced a new attraction that should make fans of the Tron movies very happy. 'By the time all three new ships are sailing, we'll have almost doubled the size of our existing fleet'.

"All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences", the statement said.

Few details about the new ships were given, except to say that each would have about 1,250 staterooms, slightly larger than Disney's newest ships, according to a news release.

The prices have not been disclosed but Seatrade Cruise News estimates approximately $900m per ship.

Since first setting sail in 1998, Disney Cruise Line has provided a quintessential family cruise vacation experience that combines the magic of Disney with the wonder of exploring different parts of the world.

And with Disney joining the LNG-powered lineup, this means 14 newbuilds created to use liquefied natural gas at sea as well as in port.
