Bookings are set to open on Thursday, June 24, for Disney Cruise Line's fleet of ships for when the cruise line resumes sailings in fall 2022.
The cruise line, geared to family vacations, is taking a conservative approach given the complexities and uncertainties of vaccinations for children during the pandemic.
Highlights of Disney's itineraries for fall 2022 sailings include theme cruises that will mark Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime Cruises.
Said Thomas Mazloum, president of Disney Cruise Line: “With five ships setting sail in fall 2022 from different homeports around the country, we are excited to offer more ways than ever before for families to make special memories with Disney Cruise Line.”
Here's the breakdown of sailings by ship:
Disney Wish will mark its inaugural cruise at the start of summer 2022. Fall itineraries aboard the ship are scheduled to depart from Port Canaveral, Fla., with three- and four-night sailings visiting the Bahamas and Disney’s Castaway Cay.
Disney Fantasy also has itineraries leaving from Port Canaveral for six-, seven- and eight-night sailings stopping at Castaway Cay and the eastern or western Caribbean.
Disney Dream will sail out of Miami with four- and five-night sailings to the Bahamas. The ship also has five-night sailing that cruise to Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. Each of these itineraries also includes a stop at Disney’s private island.
Disney Magic will sail out of New York to Bermuda and Canada in late September before sailing out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, in early November. Then it will make its way to Galveston, Texas, for five- and seven-night itineraries to the western Caribbean.
On the West Coast, Disney Wonder will sail out of San Diego to the Baja peninsula with three-, four- and five-night itineraries.
As for theme cruises, Halloween on the High Seas itineraries run from mid-September until the end of October 2022. Disney says to bring your own Halloween costumes and dress up for a spooky-fun time with your favorite Disney characters.
Those wishing to embark on one of the Very Merrytime Cruises will enjoy decorations, specialty entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus. These sailing run from early December through December 2022.
