Set to debut June 9, 2022, the 4,000-passenger Disney Wish will have many fan favorites from Disney Cruise Line's current four-ship fleet, but Wish also will feature some new fun offerings, too.

Disney Wish will have several new-to-fleet restaurants, a reimagined take on entertainment and the cruise line's first Disney attraction at sea. It also will feature Rapunzel on the stern, making Disney Wish the first in the fleet to have a female character there.

Here's a closer look at the offerings available on Disney Wish.

AquaMouse. The first Disney attraction at Sea, the AquaMouse will combine a waterslide with storytelling, sending passengers on a 760-foot animated experience with Mickey and Minnie. The two-minute journey involves a two-seater ride vehicle and has water effects, music and animation.

Pool District. The expansive area includes six pools and lots of lounge space for families. You can enjoy entertainment broadcast on the ship's Funnel Vision, a jumbo LED display that screens Disney movies, TV shows, live sporting events and more.

Toy-Story-themed waterpark. For the littlest ones, Disney Wish features a Toy Story-themed waterpark for toddlers and young children. Characters including Woody and Buzz Lightyear will be there as oversized bath toys that move around and spray water. It also will have a waterslide for all ages, dubbed Slide-a-saurus Rex.

Quiet Cove. For adults only and set away from family areas, the Quiet Cove on Disney Wish will include the line's first infinity pool.

Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge. The design of this new bar is based off of the character Dryden Vos' ship in the movie "Solo: A Star Wars Story." It will offer virtual portholes with views of movie locations like Batuu, Tatooine, Mustafar and Coruscant. Beverages will be inspired by the Star Wars films, and interactive tastings will be on offer. During the day, Hyperspace is open to all guests, but in the evening it's reserved for adults only. Costumes are encouraged.

The Rose. Inspired by the story of Beauty and the Beast, this lounge is open in the evenings, offering cocktails and small plates from nearby specialty restaurants Palo Steakhouse and Enchante.

Enchante by Chef Arnaud Lallement. This new Disney specialty restaurant has a menu created by three-Michelin-starred chef Lallement, featuring international offerings and seasonal ingredients. Open only to adults, the restaurant design is inspired by "Beauty and the Beast" character, Lumiere, the candelabra. The space will be decorated with blues metals, offering two intimate dining rooms and a private 10-seat dining room.

Palo Steakhouse. The specialty restaurant will combine Italian dining and a modern steakhouse, offering prime cuts such as Japanese Kobe and Miyazaki beef. The design will be inspired by Cogsworth, the clock from "Beauty and the Beast," and will feature rich wood and metal design as well as artwork evocative of ornate clocks, pendulums and gears.

For the families, Disney Wish will offer rotational dining at three new restaurants; diners will eat at a different restaurant each night.

Worlds of Marvel. The cruise line's first Marvel-themed restaurant will offer an interactive "dining adventure" in which guests will play an interactive part in an Avengers mission. The space will feature architecture inspired by Iron Man Tony Stark and an original story line. The menus will feature foods from real and fictional locales, including Wakanda and Sokovia.

Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure. This dinner-theater experience will have live musical performances from "Frozen" characters, singalongs and table crafts. The space includes a theater-in-the-round, set in the middle of the restaurant to create a 360-degree show that transforms based on fiber optics, magical windows and dancing lights. The menu will feature Norwegian-inspired food.

1923. Named for the year Walt Disney was founded, this restaurant pays homage to the company's Californian heritage. The dining room, separated into two spaces named for Roy and Walt Disney, features more than 1,000 drawings and props. It will offer Californian cuisine.

Entertainment. Spaces include the Grand Atrium, featuring a statue of Cinderella. Luna is a hub that will feature interactive programming throughout the day, and then transform at night. The Heros Zone is a "futuristic sports arena" that will have families taking on physical challenges as other passengers cheer them on.

The Walt Disney Theatre, designed to look like an enchanted forest, will host the line's original stage shows, including the popular "Disney's Aladdin -- A Musical Spectacular" as well as an original adaptation of "The Little Mermaid" -- called "Disney The Little Mermaid" -- and an embarkation celebration called "Disney Seas the Adventure."

Passengers can catch movies at Wonderland and Never Land.

Cabins. Disney Wish cabins are designed to fit families, so they come with lots of storage and the cruise line's signature split bathrooms, which offer tubs in one area, along with separate water closets. Most of the 1,254 staterooms come with ocean views. The ship features 877 balcony cabins, and offers 451 connecting doors adjoining rooms for larger families.

Royal Suites. In a first for Disney Cruise Line, Wish will offer two two-story Royal Suites featuring sweeping spiral staircases and stained glass (there are also two one-story Royal Suites). Each suite features two master bedrooms with master baths, double sleeper sofas, upscale furnishings, an open dining salon, a large pantry and oversized balcony with private hot tub.

Oceaneer Club. Disney pulls out all the stops for ages 3-12. On Wish, kids can enjoy themed spaces that include Marvel Super Hero Academy, Walt Disney Imagineering Lab and Fairytale Hall, featuring Disney Princesses and Frozen Queens. Activities are interactive and character heavy, with options like roller coaster design and battles against virtual bad guys.

It's A Small World Nursery. A space for the tiniest cruisers, from 6 months to 3 years.

Edge and Vibe. Clubs for tweens and teens, respectively, with dedicated counselors on site
