'Triton' name is newly revealed
To date, Disney has not publicly used the 'Triton' name for its trio of 140,000gt, LNG-powered newbuilds at Meyer Werft, the first to enter service in 2021. Ship features haven't been announced.
Disney currently occupies Cruise Terminal 8 while the neighboring Cruise Terminal 10 is mainly used by Norwegian Cruise Line. Port officials have indicated Disney could use the larger CT-10 on days when no Norwegian ship is in port.
