Shipmonk recently reported on news from a German radio report, stating that the Global Dream, a 19 story vessel filled with amenities, could be in negotiations for completion. With the original owner Genting Hong Kong going into administration due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the massive cruise ship was left unfinished and without a company to complete it. It is now rumored that Disney Cruise Line may be in negotiations with shipyard Meyer Werft to complete the massive vessel.
The Global Dream was planned to have 2,500 staterooms, and could hold up to 9,000 guests. Meyer Werft, the shipyard behind the Disney Wish, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy, is in negotiations to complete the Global Dream, stating that they are in confidential negotiations with a company to potentially complete the ship.
Insolvency administrators Brinkmann & Partner, those currently under management of the Global Dream, also state that they are in negotiations with various interested parties, however the completion with Meyer Werft is preferred. With many planned amenities, including the longest roller coaster at sea and the largest cinema at sea, this seems to be a perfect fit for Disney Cruise Line. Disney Cruise Line has not yet responded on the rumors involving this potential purchase.
Are you looking forward to this possibly joining the fleet of Disney Cruise Line vessels?
