THE WOW FACTOR
Disney Wish will have the first Disney attraction at sea - AquaMouse - a Mickey Mouse-themed water ride snaking above the top deck for 760ft through colourful cartoons with music, lighting and special effects plus views of the sea, before splashing down into a lazy river.
It will also be home to the world's first Frozen-themed theatrical dining experience, bringing the enchanted Kingdom of Arendelle and the lovable Elsa and Olaf to your table.
Worlds Of Marvel will be the world's first Marvel cinematic dining adventure, where guests have an interactive role in an Avengers mission while they eat.
And another first is Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, an interactive space open for families during the day that becomes an adults-only night time lounge and bar that's described as being like "a bar on a yacht-class spaceship".
