The coronavirus pandemic has caused many movies, video games, and other highly-anticipated things to be delayed. With all of these delays, I was wondering if the Wish's construction had been impacted and delayed as well. We still have a long time to wait before 2022, and if the Wish's launch were to get pushed to a later date, the seemingly eternal wait would be even longer.
Well, great news! The Wish is still going to begin cruising in January of 2022! Surprisingly, I found this information on the DCL Frequently Asked Questions page. The FAQ page also says that people will be able to book cruises on the Wish in late 2020, likely soon after the early 2022 cruise itineraries are announced. More details about the Wish will probably be revealed with those itineraries.
In the meantime, here's a video showing the progress of the Wish's construction from a month ago. It doesn't look much like a fun-filled cruise ship yet, but it will be when it's completed in late 2021!
