CELEBRATION, FL — Disney Cruise Line has unveiled new fall itineraries in 2023, including its first-ever departures from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Cruises from Florida, California and New York will allow guests to set sail aboard Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime Cruises, both opening to the public for bookings on July 28, 2022.
Halloween on the High Seas cruises will return from mid-September through October 2023 and feature favourite characters dressed in Halloween costumes, Mickey’s Mouse-querade party and trick-or-treating at sea.
From early November through December, Disney Cruise Line ships will be extra merry during Very Merrytime Cruises featuring characters dressed in festive garb, a special tree-lighting ceremony, holiday décor as well as Santa and Mrs. Claus.
“We are excited to provide families with experiences that create lasting memories,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Cruise Line. “With offerings for the entire family, specially curated activities for both Halloween and the holidays and a brand new homeport in South Florida, our guests will have more ways than ever to experience the magic of Disney at sea.”
NEW ADVENTURES ON DISNEY DREAM
Following its inaugural season in Europe, the Disney Dream will set sail from New York City for the first time. Families will enjoy four-, five- and six-night sailings from the Big Apple to Bermuda. Plus, a special four-night voyage on the Disney Dream will transport guests to the Canadian seaport city of Saint John.
Starting in Nov. 20, 2023, Disney Cruise Line will find a new South Florida home in Port Everglades, its second year-round homeport, offering four- and five-night cruises aboard the Disney Dream to the western Caribbean and the Bahamas. Stops include Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Nassau, plus Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island oasis.
MEXICAN RIVIERA FROM CALIFORNIA
Beginning in mid-October 2023, the Disney Magic will find its home on the West Coast, setting sail form San Diego for voyages ranging from two to seven nights to Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Guests will experience the beauty of Santa Catalina Island, California, Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico. An exclusive seven-night Mexican Riviera sailing will feature the ports of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.
VACATIONS FROM PORT CANAVERAL
In the fall of 2023, the Disney Wish and Disney Fantasy will continue sailing from Port Canaveral to tropical destinations in the Bahamas and Caribbean.
The Disney Wish will sail three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas, including visits to Nassau and Castaway Cay.
The Disney Fantasy will offer families even more time to experience Disney Cruise Line’s world-class dining, Broadway-style shows and spaces designed for the entire family during seven-night cruises to destinations in the eastern and western Caribbean.
