Disney lovers, we finally have a date for the maiden voyage of the the company's newest cruise ship.

In August last year, the entertainment giant announced the next cruise liner to join its ever-growing fleet will be called the Disney Wish - and now we have learned it will be setting sail in January 2022.

While fans are a way off being able to book a spot on the cruise, it's certainly an exciting prospect - and definitely something to get excited for post-pandemic.

The Wish joins four other cruise ships already part of The Disney Cruise Line - Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy.

A further three ships are planned to be added in 2021, 2022 and 2023.

The Disney Wish is themed on Rapunzel, the long-haired Disney princess will grace the ship's stern, representing her "wish to see the world".

When details of the ship were announced at D23 Expo in August 2019, fans also got a look at some concept art of the ship's three-story atrium, featuring an enchanted staircase, decorative carpeting and an enormous light hanging in the centre.

We think you'll agree its shaping up to be a pretty magical ship.

Those who have already booked a cruise with Disney planned for this year might be wondering how the global pandemic will affect your booking.

Last week, Disney Cruise Line announced it was launching a temporary Cruise Date Flexibility option.

Guest will be allowed to change their sail date up to 15 days prior to their cruise.

New or existing cruises booked before 31st August 2020 up until 31st March 2021 will be able to be rebooked up to 15 days before departure.

As reported by Monorail News, the company wrote to travellers: "At Disney Cruise Line we understand that these are challenging times, but we take comfort in knowing that brighter days are ahead. We can't wait to welcome our Guests back onboard and return to making magic at sea."

The make changes, you'll need to contact your travel agent or booking provider.
