It will offer three- and four-night itineraries to destinations around Southeast Asia, with a variety of entertainment and Disney character meet and greets onboard.

To keep the thousands of passengers happy, the ship will be split into seven themed zones, each based on a different Disney, Marvel or Pixar movie.
