Land, ho! For many, the promise of visiting new places is the big appeal of cruising. The Caribbean, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and Alaska are a world away from what most of us are familiar with, and the lure of exotic lands is great. This and the next four chapters were written with your needs in mind. We hope to help you determine which ports you’d most like to visit (and hence which cruise itinerary to choose) and what you can do while you’re in each port.

Most every port on the upcoming Disney cruise itineraries over the next 12 months—including the home port of Port Canaveral, the private island of Castaway Cay, and the special itinerary ports—is represented by a “port guide.” Each port guide is two to 12 pages long ( and includes general information (time zone, currency, climate, etc.), ambience, history, transportation, safety, walking tour, layout, attractions, sports, beaches, and shopping. In addition, we often add one of our own maps of the port and a detailed listing of the shore excursions offered through Disney, and/or our recommended shore activities. These port guides are by no means comprehensive. (That would require an entire book for each port.) Rather, they focus on what’s possible and practical during the short hours you’ll have in port and should give an excellent overview.

For those of you who’ve “been there and done that” or simply don’t want to venture off the ship, feel free to stay onboard while the ship is in port. Disney offers plenty of activities onboard during port days, and you’ll enjoy the slower pace and quieter atmosphere of the ship. Do note that the onboard shops will be closed while you’re in port, and some places (like the nursery) will have shorter operating hours.

On all four-night and longer itineraries, you’ll have a day (or two, or more—see page 40-page 49) when you visit no ports at all. These are called “at-sea” days, and most passengers adore them. The crew offers more things to do onboard than usual, and the ship hums with activity. Plus, there’s just something special about “being underway” during the day, instead of at night as is more typical on port days.
