Will Disney Cruise Line FINALLY Announce the 2012 Itineraries?
It seems that Disney Cruise Line may be making some big announcements in the “Big Apple” on Wednesday, April 6, 2011.
Speculation abounds that the itineraries for the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic for the second half of 2012 will be announced.
Right now, Disney Cruise Line followers are left with more questions than answers. Does this mean Disney Cruise Line will be making New York one of its Ports? Will more transatlantic itineraries be announced? Will itineraries include stops at New York?
Well, folks in the Northeast would love to see New York as a port for the Disney Cruise Line, as it would make enjoying their favorite cruise line even easier.
But New York? Hmmm. . . .? Adventures By Disney had previously offered a tour entitled Bean Town and the Big Apple, offering adventurers a multi-night organized tour of both cities. This tour was offered for only a short time with Adventures By Disney officials indicating that it was not a well attended tour as many guests would visit those places on their own.
Since Karl Holz is the President of Disney Cruise Line AND Adventures By Disney, will he want to try New York again, but by water instead of land?
Currently, there is only 1 year’s worth of itineraries available for guest to choose from on the Disney Magic. The last listed itinerary is for a 6 night Western Caribbean cruise leaving Port Canaveral on Saturday, March 24, 2012. There does seem to be a listing for another itinerary leaving on Friday, March 30, 2012, but guests accessing the Disney Cruise Line site, aren’t able to book this itinerary. The Maiden Voyage of the Disney Fantasy will leave Port Canaveral on Saturday, March 31, 2012.
For guests wanting to sail on the Disney Wonder, bookings can be had through April 22, 2012, for 7 night Mexican Riviera sailings. After that date, no itineraries are available.
Hopefully, more information will be available on April 6.
My guess is that there will be some pretty enticing itineraries available on the Magic and Wonder, as guests would be more drawn to sail on the two new ships.
And, while we would love to sail on the Fantasy, after sailing on the Dream in a few months, we would jump at the chance to sail to Hawaii on the Wonder. For now, we will just have to wait until April 6.
