Choosing Your Itinerary
Introduction & Bahamas
Disney Cruise Line offers an ever-expanding choice of itineraries and ports of embarkation. From now through September 2019 you can choose from 3-, 4-, 5-, 7-, and 8-night Bahamas cruises (departing from Port Canaveral, Miami, Galveston, or New York), 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 10-, and 11- night Eastern, Western, and Southern Caribbean cruises (departing from Port Canaveral, Miami, Galveston, San Juan, or New York), 5-, 7-, 10-, 11-, and 12-night European cruises (with departures from Barcelona, Copenhagen, Civitavecchia/Rome, or Dover), 5-, 7-, and 9-night Alaskan cruises departing from Vancouver, 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-night Mexican Riviera cruises from San Diego, 4-, 5-, and 7-night Canadian cruises from New York or Quebec City, 5- and 6-night New York-based sailings to Bermuda, and repositioning cruises between Port Canaveral and San Diego, San Diego and Vancouver, San Diego and Galveston, Port Canaveral and San Juan, Miami and San Juan, Galveston and San Juan, New York and San Juan, Port Canaveral and Copenhagen, Dover and Copenhagen, Miami and Barcelona, Dover and Barcelona, Barcelona and New York, and Dover and New York. Your choice of itineraries may be solely based on price or length, particularly if you combine your cruise with a stay at Walt Disney World (see page page 57).
Disney Cruise Line has announced the itineraries for summer 2019, including an expanded West Coast season, and returns to popular tropical ports. Check out the details in the Disney Parks Blog.
3-Night Bahamas Cruise Itinerary (Port Canaveral or Miami, Disney Dream, Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Fantasy): A short and affordable cruise, with three nights at sea and two ports of call: Nassau and Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. Actual time spent afloat: about 68 hours (almost three days). This cruise whizzes by, and you may feel like it’s over before it’s barely begun. On the flip side, this is a great cruise on which to get your feet wet if you’re new to cruising. If you plan to stay at the Walt Disney World Resort before your cruise, the 3-night cruise works best for this as it falls at the end of the week. A few cruises skip Nassau in favor of a day at sea.
4-Night Bahamas Cruise Itineraries (Port Canaveral or Miami, Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream): Like the 3-night, the 4-night stops at Nassau and Castaway Cay. The extra day is usually spent at sea. Some Miami-based cruises substitute Key West for the day at sea. Some Port Canaveral-based cruises swap a second visit to Castaway Cay for that day at sea. The most common itinerary departs Port Canaveral on Mondays. Actual time spent afloat: about 92 hours (almost four days). If cruising is your focus, you’ll be happier with a 4-night cruise than a 3-night—the extra night is more relaxing and it gives you a greater chance of a special dinner at Palo or Remy (see page 169 and page 171). If the Captain has to bypass Castaway Cay due to weather, he may try again the next day.
