Disney Cruise Line is to build a third LNG-powered newbuild - a move that will nearly double its fleet by boosting its number to seven cruise ships.

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

Two Disney ships already are scheduled to be delivered in 2021 and 2023.

At the D23 Expo this weekend, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts announced that the long-awaited Toy Story Land will be coming in 2018 to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The White House has met with at least three people seen as primary challengers to Republican Arizona Sen. Last fall, Trump supposedly considered spending $10 million of his own money to defeat Flake.

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.

'We decided two ships wouldn't be enough to hold all of the exciting new experiences we have been dreaming up to take family cruise vacations to a whole new level with immersive Disney storytelling, world-class family entertainment and imaginative innovations that are fantastically fun and uniquely Disney, ' Chapek said. "By the time all three new ships are sailing, we'll have almost doubled the size of our existing fleet".

The prices have not been disclosed but Seatrade Cruise News estimates approximately $900m per ship. Illustrating the current intensity of the busness, when the line announced its two-ship order in March 2016, the furthest out the orderbook went was to 2019.
