As shared by Disney: “The bow’s elegant filigree art, a hallmark of Disney Cruise Line vessels, includes an intricate scrollwork pattern reminiscent of the classic ocean liners of the 1930s. And the portrait of Captain Minnie on the Disney Wish adds just the right amount of Disney whimsy to the design!”

On top of the Captain Minnie announcement, Disney Wish has reached a construction milestone marked by a keel laying ceremony. During a ship’s construction, when the section of a ship is lowered into the building dock, a newly minted coin is placed under the keel for good fortune. And yes, you guess it, Captain Minnie is featured on the Disney Wish coin.
