Disney Cruise Line is expanding its itineraries out of San Diego and returning to popular tropical ports for its early 2019 cruise season.
Early 2019 will see an expanded two-month season from San Diego to Baja California and the Mexican Riviera, as well as to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Florida ports and cruises to the southern Caribbean from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
From January to May, all cruises departing from Florida include a stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas.
Bookings open to the public on November 2, 2017.
San Diego to Baja and Mexican Riviera
The Disney Wonder returns to San Diego for an extended season from March to May 2019, with a variety of cruises to Mexico where Disney Cruise Line guests can enjoy culture, beaches, water activities, cliff diving and ziplining through the jungle on a series of two-, four-, five- and seven-night voyages.
Most sailings to Mexico’s Baja peninsula call on the coastal city of Ensenada, known as the “Cinderella of the Pacific” with its turquoise blue water and rugged mountainous terrain. Two-night cruises to Ensenada depart Friday on a weekend getaway.
Four- and five-night Baja options include a visit to Cabo San Lucas, while seven-night sailings to the Mexican Riviera call on Cabo San Lucas and the snorkeling and scuba diving hot spots of Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlán.
San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Southern Caribbean
In January, three Disney Wonder cruises from San Juan sail to the southern Caribbean.
The Disney Wonder arrives to San Juan after a five-night journey departing January 9 from Galveston, Texas, with a stop in Falmouth, Jamaica. On February 3, a four-night cruise aboard the Disney Wonder takes guests from San Juan to Port Canaveral, Florida, an hour away from Walt Disney World Resort.
Port Canaveral to Bahamas and Eastern and Western Caribbean
With three Disney ships in port and cruise lengths spanning three, four and seven nights, vacationers looking for a getaway in early 2019 have a number of options from Port Canaveral, near Orlando, Florida. Every sailing includes a day at Castaway Cay, where guests can enjoy the Castaway Family Beach or the secluded, adults-only Serenity Bay.
The Disney Fantasy continues to sail seven-night Caribbean voyages, with eastern Caribbean itineraries visiting the Virgin Islands of Tortola and St. Thomas, and western Caribbean cruises calling on Cozumel, Mexico, Grand Cayman and Falmouth.
The Disney Dream embarks on three- and four-night Bahamian cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay, and the Disney Wonder will alternate similar three- and four-night itineraries throughout February.
Miami to Bahamas and Western Caribbean
To kick off 2019, the Disney Magic continues sailing from Miami with four- and five-night voyages to the Bahamas, plus five-night western Caribbean cruises.
Guests will visit Castaway Cay on all of these Disney Magic sailings, and other ports of call will include Nassau and Key West, Florida. A stop in Grand Cayman or Cozumel headlines the western Caribbean itineraries.
