Disney Cruise Line to Return to Tropical Destinations in 2023

Disney Cruise Line will return to top tropical destinations in the Bahamas, including Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, as well as the Caribbean and the Mexican Riviera in 2023. A variety of itineraries will set sail coast-to-coast from U.S. home ports, including Miami and Port Canaveral, Florida; New Orleans; Galveston, Texas; and San Diego. Bookings open to the public on October 21, 2021. 

Among the Florida departures, two ships will sail from Port Canaveral near Orlando, Florida, and a third ship will depart from Miami. Every cruise from Florida includes a visit to Castaway Cay.

Departing from Port Canaveral, the Disney Wish will sail into 2023 with three- and four-night voyages to Nassau, Bahamas and Castaway Cay. Also from Port Canaveral, the Disney Fantasy will begin the year with seven-night sailings to several destinations in the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Plus, one unique eight-night sailing includes two days in Bermuda, where guests can sunbathe on the island’s pristine pink sand beaches, enjoy exhilarating water sports or explore the island’s underground Crystal Caves.

From Miami, the Disney Dream will embark on an assortment of four- and five-night cruises to locales including Grand Cayman, Nassau, Castaway Cay and Cozumel, Mexico. Even more private island enjoyment is on deck with one special five-night cruise that includes two stops at Castaway Cay.

In January and February, the Disney Magic will sail from Galveston, Texas, on a variety of four-, five-, six- and seven-night itineraries to the Bahamas and Western Caribbean. Tropical ports of call on these sailings include Grand Cayman as well as Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico.

In February and March, the Disney Magic will head for a debut season in New Orleans. Departing from the heart of the “The Big Easy,” along the Mississippi River, the four-, five- and six-night sailings will call on the tropical destinations of Grand Cayman and Cozumel.

Before or after their Disney cruise, guests can venture into the “Crescent City” to savor the distinct flavors of New Orleans cuisine, revel in the city’s jazz music and recognize the sights and sounds that inspired the animated film “The Princess and the Frog.”

The Disney Wonder will return to the West Coast, sailing from San Diego in April and May. Cruises to Baja, Mexico and the Mexican Riviera will transport guests to sunny shores filled with vibrant culture, glittering sand beaches, active outdoor adventures and water activities.

Sailings from San Diego will range in length from three to seven nights. Some sailings to the Baja peninsula will call on the coastal city of Ensenada, known for its turquoise blue water and rugged mountainous terrain. Many departures will include a visit to Cabo San Lucas, a destination with dramatic rock formations and white sand beaches.

Seven-night itineraries will sail to Mazatlan, the “Pearl of the Pacific,” filled with natural wonders, thriving culture and colorful history, and to Puerto Vallarta, the seaside escape nestled along the curve of the Banderas Bay and bordered by the Sierra Madre mountains.
