You might know Disney, but how well do you know Disney Cruise Lines? For example, did you know that Disney Cruise Line is the trading name of Magical Cruise Company Limited?
Disney Cruise Lines set sail in 1998 with the Disney Magic. Disney Wonder followed the next year. Disney Dream came along in 2011 and Disney Fantasy in 2012. Even though Disney Cruise Line only owns and operates 4 cruise ships, it’s estimated they own nearly 3% of the worldwide cruise market.

But to get the right look, Disney went to the Coast Guard and got special permission to have yellow life boats. The rest is history.
  1. Mickey Whistles. Disney cruise ships don’t have an average horn. In fact, the horns on Disney Cruise ships play notes from Disney songs.
