This fall, Disney Cruise Line will return to some of its favorite destinations and home ports on a variety of itineraries, including getaways to Bermuda, the Bahamas, Mexico and destinations around the Caribbean.
Bookings open to the public on May 24, 2018, the company said.
The Disney Magic is returning to New York in September for a selection of departures to a multitude of destinations, including Bermuda and the Bahamas.
Three five-night cruises feature two days in Bermuda, allowing extra time for guests to relax on the island nation’s pink-sand beaches, shopping, water activities and its blend of cultures.
Two seven-night sailings from New York to the Bahamas pair a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, with a day at Port Canaveral, Florida, where every guest receives a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and round-trip transportation to the theme parks in nearby Orlando.
In fall 2019, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy continue sailing itineraries to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral, while the Disney Magic returns to Miami in November with a variety of cruise lengths and itineraries.
The Disney Magic’s lineup includes three-, four- and five-night Bahamian sailings and five- and six-night Western Caribbean cruises, with most itineraries featuring a day ashore at Castaway Cay.
Other ports of call on Bahamian voyages include Nassau and and Key West, while stops in Grand Cayman and Cozumel headline the Western Caribbean itineraries.
The Disney Dream sails three- and four-night cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay.
The Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Caribbean voyages, each with a stop at Castaway Cay.
Eastern Caribbean itineraries visit the Virgin Islands of Tortola and St. Thomas, while Western Caribbean cruises call on Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth.
The Disney Fantasy will also sail a selection of special itineraries.
In October, an eight-night voyage transports guests south to St Kitts, Antigua and San Juan, Puerto Rico, while a six-night Western Caribbean itinerary includes on Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico.
Both itineraries are capped off with a day at Castaway Cay.
In December, two unique seven-night itineraries include one cruise to San Juan, Tortola and Castaway Cay, and another voyage featuring two days on Disney’s private island after visits to Cozumel and and Grand Cayman.
