Is it true that DCL are building new ships????

Was on the Fantasy about a month ago and some of the cast members were telling us that DCL is building 2 new ships starting in 2015. Is this true or just a rumor????

Sounds like the rumor that generally pops up every 6 months or so. I think until DCL figures out a more stable itinerary schedule for the ships they already have, they won't (or shouldn't) be building more ships.,

That said, they do have the option for 2 more ships from Meyer Werft, so who knows?

Most likely a rumor. It has been circulating for a while the latest was in April for April fools, had a lot of people rattled up. It would be cool though.

Rumor. From Bob Iger, from his lips. No new ships. They are looking to recoup some money and also see how the fleet as a while is doing before committing to new ships.

A great quote from someone in response to your same question in April..." Seems like a reliable source. Now we just need a bus driver at disney world to confirm it". It's just a rumor and nothing else until an actual disney cruise line spokesperson says something.
