Disney fans will soon get to set sail with some of the brand’s beloved characters on a new cruise.

Disney Cruise Line has announced new details about its latest ship being constructed, Disney Destiny — described as full of “legends and lore” — which is set to launch in 2025.

The brand said that the ship’s design theme will be “Heroes and Villains,” and will be inspired by different “Disney stories, characters and theme park attractions” in order to “empower guests to embrace their own calling” while on the voyage, according to a press release.

“The Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams were inspired by the dynamic duality of every great Disney story, where opposing forces of light and dark drive characters to rise to their purpose, when developing the Disney Destiny,” the press release said.

People aboard the cruise will be able to meet and interact with characters from The Lion King, Hercules and One Hundred and One Dalmatians and other Pixar and Marvel movies— some of whom were present in Disney Parks' new video introducing the ship.

The video features Captain Minnie as she searches the ship for a Disney Destiny commemorative coin, and she comes across Disney villains Scar and Cruella de Vil. Captain Minnie eventually finds the ship’s commemorative coin with Hades, and Hercules helps her to get it back.

The storyline of the video hints at some of the “spaces, experiences and entertainment” guests can expect while setting sail on Disney Destiny.

“The Disney Destiny will celebrate our most legendary Disney stories and characters, bringing them to life in new and exciting ways exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Cruise Line in a press release.

She continued, “As we continue to expand our fleet, the Disney Destiny will further strengthen our position as a leader in family cruising as we offer even more ways for families to experience Disney magic and world-class service at sea.”

Disney also revealed its commemorative coin for the voyage, which depicts Minnie Mouse “striking a valiant pose” while wearing a cape “waving majestically in the sea breeze” as she leads the ship. The same filigree artwork will be featured on the bow of the Disney Destiny.

The ship is slowly coming together, having celebrated a new construction milestone on Wednesday with a keel laying ceremony, which is a formal recognition of the start of a ship's construction, at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

The ship is part of a multi-year expansion of Disney Cruise Line’s fleet, which also includes Disney Wish and Disney Treasure.
