Disney Cruise Ships by Size [2021] with Comparison Chart

Jeremy CamosseMay 1 2021Travel
Below you'll find a complete list of Disney Ships by Size. From their smallest ship, the Disney Wonder, to the largest Disney cruise ship (soon to be), the Disney Wish.
While some cruise lines differ in size by a factor of 5x between their biggest and smallest ships, Disney has less variance. It also has significantly fewer ships. Once completed, the Disney Wish will be the fleet's 5th ship. Compare that to Carnival and Royal Caribbean's massive fleets (totally roughly 60 ships).
However, the difference in size between the Magic Class of ships vs Disney Class is worth noting. The Dream and Fantasy are roughly 55% larger than the Wonder and Magic! If you're in the "bigger is better camp," you'll want to opt for the Dream Class.
Disney Largest Cruise Ship compared to Disney Smallest Cruise Ship
Here at Gangwaze, we don't discriminate when it comes to our Disney ship size. Sometimes we need a bit more breathing room. Think big family reunions. While other times we prefer a cozier cruise.
First, a little clarification is needed before checking out our sizing chart below. We're comparing Disney cruise ships by size using the metric, "Gross Tonnage." This always causes a few shoulder shrugs in our community. We're not simply talking, "weight." The definition is a bit nuanced. And by "nuanced, we mean "boring." Here it is nonetheless.
Gross TonnageA nonlinear measure of a ship's overall internal volume. Gross tonnage is calculated based on the moulded volume of all enclosed spaces of the ship and is used to determine things such as a ship's manning regulations, safety rules, registration fees, and port dues, whereas the older gross register tonnage is a measure of the volume of only certain enclosed spaces.
Hey, wake up! So why do we use this measurement to determine Disney Ship Sizes? As noted above, it's used for safety rules and whatnot. As such, it's the standard across this cruise line and all others. Every passenger cruise ship will have this measurement. That makes it easy to compare ship size across ship, class, cruise lines and more.
Additionally, you'll find a number of other stats in our ship list. These include ship length, beam, draft, passenger count, and a few others for your viewing pleasure.
Ok, we're done with today's course on maritime verbiage. Here's the good stuff.
