Fall 2018 Disney Cruise Line Itineraries

Disney Cruise Line has released itineraries for fall 2018! Schedules are out through December 2018.  Early 2019 schedules will be released later in 2017.

This is the first time the new Castaway Club staggered booking has been used.  On Monday, May 15 new itineraries open to Platinum Castaway Club members.  On Tuesday, May 16 they open to Gold members, then May 17 for Silver Castaway Club.  On Thursday, May 18 the new itineraries open to the public.

Booking early gives you the best stateroom availability and locks in your cruise price.  This can be especially helpful if you need or want connecting staterooms.  We offer onboard credit for most Disney Cruise vacations.  Request your no-obligation cruise quote today!

The Dream will sail 3-Night and 4-Night Bahamian cruises out of Port Canaveral, Florida.  These cruises include a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.  These are great for first time cruisers, adding in conjunction with a Walt Disney World vacation, and for a short getaway to relax and recharge.

There are two special cruises on November 19 and December 31, 2018 that feature a second day at Castaway Cay in place of Nassau.  These are sure to be popular!

The Fantasy continues to sail alternating 7-Night Western Caribbean and 7-Night Eastern Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida.  All of these Fantasy cruises include a stop in Castaway Cay. These cruises balance days at sea with ports of call to offer you the best of action and relaxation.

The Magic returns to the US with a Westbound Transatlantic cruise on September 9, 2018. Once the Magic is relocated to New York, she will sail two new one way 7-Night Canadian cruises between New York and Quebec City.  These exciting new itineraries feature 3 new Canadian ports of call, with a 2 day stay in Quebec City.

Throughout October the Magic will be sailing to another new port of call, Bermuda!  These 5-Night and 6-Night Bermuda cruises highlight one port of call at King’s Wharf, and spend 2 or 3 days in port respectively.

Beginning in November 2018 the Magic will sail 7-Night Bahamian cruises that include a stop in Port Canaveral and Castaway Cay.  Your cruise includes a 1-Day Park Hopper ticket and roundtrip transportation between the port and Walt Disney World.

On November 24, 2018 the Magic sails one way from New York to San Juan.  Then one short cruise relocated the Magic to Miami, where she’ll finish out the year sailing short Western Caribbean and Bahamian cruises.

The Wonder ends its Alaska season with a relocation cruise from Vancouver to San Diego on September 10, 2018.  The Wonder then sails short Baja cruises to Mexico through mid-October.  On October 19, the Wonder has a 14-Night Eastbound Panama Canal to relocate to Galveston, Texas.

Once in Galveston, the Wonder sails Western Caribbean and Bahamian itineraries through the end of the year.  A 6-Night Western Caribbean cruise sneaks into January 2019, which may the last sailing out of Galveston for the season before another relocation.  These cruises are a great opportunity to save on transportation to your cruise if you live in Texas or nearby. The Wonder doesn’t say in Texas for long, so jump on these plans while you can!

These new itineraries offer lots of exciting vacation opportunities!  Where will you sail next?

Snapshot – Sunset over the Bahamas

There is no better time to wax nostalgic over prior vacations than the middle of winter!  I’ve been pining for any vacation, but right now I’m dreaming of a Disney Cruise.  We’ve made so many great memories on our previous cruises and I’m ready to make new ones.

One memory that stands out is this sunset as we left prepared to Nassau on a 3-Night Bahamian cruise aboard the Disney Dream.  It has been drizzling rain all day and we took a nap after spending some time touring downtown Nassau.  When we awoke and peeked outside we were greeted with this stunning view.

Away to the window I flew like a flash!  Tore open the shutter and threw up the sash!  Ok, we actually ran up to the adult sundeck on Deck 13.  This was a short jaunt because we were staying Concierge on Deck 12.  Thankfully that short distance allowed us to ogle this sunset before it burned away.

Sunset at sea is just one of the many events we look forward to on our Disney Cruises!
