You’re about to embark on a marvelous voyage aboard one of the most beautiful and celebrated cruise lines in the world. You couldn’t have made a better choice—the Disney Cruise Line will surprise and delight you with its stunning architecture, legendary service, and fun-for-the-whole-family activities. Boy, we wish we could go with you!
Our original travel guide, PassPorter’s Walt Disney World, contains the basic information for the Disney Cruise Line. Even so, our readers sent in many requests to add more details on the cruises. Our answer is this guide, which is chock-a-block with information on virtually every aspect of cruising with Disney. We designed it to stand alone or work with our Walt Disney World guidebook and/or the PassPorter travel planning system. Everything you need to know to plan and enjoy a magical cruise is within these pages!
You’re reading the thirteenth edition of the first guidebook dedicated to the Disney Cruise Line! As always, we cover all ports, including the special itineraries. Also new, we’re publishing well in advance of the upcoming season. Changes and updates aboard the Disney Cruise Line since our last edition are highlighted in green, too! The Disney Cruise Line is constantly evolving, which makes this travel guide a perpetual work in progress. Please tell us what you like and where we’ve missed the boat so we can improve!
This field guide is the embodiment of not just our knowledge and experience, but that of our fellow cruisers and PassPorter readers as well. In essence, this is a cruise guide by cruisers, for cruisers. We share what we like and don’t like, and you may find some differing opinions just within the pages of this guide. Reader opinion plays a big part of our shore excursion reviews in chapter 6. And our expert reviewers shared their own opinions and experiences to enrich our information.
Use this field guide for planning before you embark, and then keep it handy onboard during your voyage. We hope you find this field guide a useful companion on your adventure!
P.S. This edition is revised on a continual basis in our LIVE! Guide.
