Captain Minnie Mouse takes the helm of the newest Disney Cruise Line ship, Disney Wish, with new artwork added to the ship’s bow and new-minted coin.

Ashley Long, Cruise Director for Disney Cruise Line has today revealed on the Disney Parks blog that “Captain Minnie Mouse is already making wishes come true” for the new ship.

The new artwork which has been placed on the bow of the Disney Wish ship includes an “intricate scrollwork pattern reminiscent of the classic ocean liners of the 1930s”.

“The magic of Captain Minnie also came alive today as we reached a significant construction milestone for the Disney Wish marked by the traditional keel-laying ceremony.”

“During a ship’s construction, when the first block, or section of a ship, is lowered into the building dock, a newly minted coin is placed under the keel for good fortune. The coin created for the Disney Wish features none other than … you guessed it, Captain Minnie!”

“Our newest captain (in her bold red jacket!) made her splash aboard our ships in 2019 as part of a collection of initiatives aiming to inspire the next generation of female leaders in the cruise industry.”

“And with Captain Minnie at the helm of the Disney Wish, our hope is to continue inspiring girls and young women around the globe!”
