With Disney's previous contract clause with MW for two additional ships - where would that put them in the building queue?

I have no info on the MW schedule. The contract is for vessels the same or similar to the Dream class.

They could work with another yard or maybe working with MW on another type of vessel, like 100,00o tons which I believe they will as that size has the best of the classic feel and the space for the dream class techno.

Just MHO.

Regardless in peak season they don't have enough ships to cover everywhere I am sure they would like to be. Given how the NY cruises sold I am sure they would love to get one back in there but that would mean not sending a ship to the Med. or Alaska, both of which also sell well.

Somewhat surprised they didn't try leaving on in NY over the fall/winter/spring season instead of dropping all 4 ships into FL. Yes the weather can suck but you can still do the FL/Bahamas run and make it work. Then again the 3/4 night stuff just doesn't appeal to me.

There after other factors besides sales percentages; port and labor contracts come to mind.

Have you confirmed it was a joke? We spoke with many different crew members on the Disney Dream and they had a meeting where they announced the building of two new ships for 2015 and 2016 or somewhere around those years and said one was being names the Disney Wish or Disney Wishes. Maybe it was supposed to be an internal April Fools Joke but not really sure. I guess we will see what happens

From the day we first sailed on a Disney ship I knew DCL was eventually gonna be huge. A 'cruise vacation' was never even on our radar until we found out that Disney had a cruise ship. 47 million people visit WDW evey year. If only 1 percent of those wanted to cruise on Disney, that would fill 2cruise ships (assuing 2,500 people per cruise and 91 cruises per year) per year. Factor in people who have sailed 10+ times on DCL.....
