Disney Cruise Line Adds Sailings From New Orleans for 2020

Disney Cruise Line New Ship Rendering

In early 2020, Disney Cruise Line will add a brand-new home port in New Orleans and return to the Hawaiian Islands. Disney Cruise Line will also return to Puerto Rico for a limited time and continue itineraries to tropical destinations from Florida and California. Bookings open to the public on October 4, 2018.

First-time Home Port in New Orleans

In 2020, the Disney Wonder will embark on a variety of Caribbean and Bahamian cruises from New Orleans – the first time Disney Cruise Line will have a home port in Louisiana. Not only will this provide families from the region with a Disney ship in their own area, but it will also draw families from farther away to discover this city before they set sail.

Before or after their Disney cruise, guests can venture into the city to enjoy famous New Orleans cuisine, visit family-friendly museums and parks, and experience the city’s world-renowned jazz music. Disney fans may recognize the sights and sounds that inspired the animated film “The Princess and the Frog.”

The Disney Wonder will embark on six cruises during this limited-time season from New Orleans, including four-, six- and seven-night Western Caribbean sailings; a seven-night Bahamian cruise; and a 14-night Panama Canal voyage, departing February 7 through March 6.

Return to Hawaii

After a five-year hiatus, the Disney Wonder will return to Hawaii in early 2020 for two special cruises: a nine-night voyage to Honolulu from Vancouver, Canada, on April 29, and a 10-night sailing back to Vancouver on May 8.

During these vacations, guests will discover the scenery of the Hawaiian Islands, including the famous beaches of Waikiki on Oahu; the views from high atop the summit of Haleakala Crater on Maui; the tropical gardens and waterfalls of Kauai; and the natural wonders of Hawaii Island.

Popular Itineraries from Puerto Rico and California

The Disney Wonder continues its season with returns to popular home ports on both coasts. First, the ship sets sail for the Southern Caribbean during two seven-night voyages departing January 19 and 26 from San Juan, Puerto Rico, followed by a five-night Bahamian cruise. Then beginning on March 20, the ship embarks on seven sailings to Baja and the Mexican Riviera, ranging in length from two to seven nights, from San Diego, California.

Tropical Getaways from Florida

Disney Cruise Line will have three ships sailing to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Florida in early 2020, and every cruise includes a day on Disney’s private Bahamian island reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, Castaway Cay.

From Miami, the Disney Magic will sail three-, four- and five-night Bahamian cruises and five-night Western Caribbean cruises. From Port Canaveral, the Disney Fantasy will sail seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, plus two special sailings at six- and eight-nights each. From Port Canaveral, the Disney Dream will sail three- and four-night Bahamian cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay.
