Disney Cruise Line to Return to New Orleans in 2021

Disney Cruise Line is returning to New Orleans in early 2021 for a limited-time engagement that will offer sailings to the Bahamas and the Caribbean, including visits to the cruise line’s private island, Castaway Cay. A lineup of itineraries will continue across the Disney fleet with cruises to tropical destinations from Texas, California and Florida. Bookings on the new sailings open to the public on October 3, 2019. 

The Disney Wonder will sail from New Orleans from late January through February 2021, operating a pair of four- and five-night cruises to the Western Caribbean to begin with. The five-night voyage includes a visit to Progreso, Mexico, a new port of call for Disney Cruise Line on the Yucatan Peninsula. After that, the ship will sail three seven-night sailings to the Bahamas with a stop at Castaway Cay, plus a 14-night Panama Canal cruise. The New Orleans sailings will also afford guests the chance to check out the Tiana’s Place restaurant, inspired by the Disney animated film “The Princess and the Frog.”

The Disney Wonder will also return to home ports of Galveston and San Diego in early 2021. From Galveston, the ship will operate a series of four- and six-night cruises to Grand Cayman and Cozumel, as well as one seven-night departure with stops at Key West, Nassau and Castaway Cay. From San Diego, the ship will sail to a variety of destinations in Baja and the Mexican Riviera
