It's October! Disney Cruise Line Announces 2013 Itineraries for Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy!

Disney Cruise Line released 2013 itineraries for the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy.  Click here for specific dates.

Looks as if the Disney Fantasy, which comes into operation March 31, 2012, will be alternating 7 night Western and Eastern Caribbean cruises throughout the rest of 2012 and all of 2013 without missing a beat.  The Disney Fantasy will operate out of Port Canaveral.

The Disney Dream will offer 3, 4, and 5 night sailings to Nassau and Castaway Cay for 2012 and then only 3 and 4 night sailings for 2013.

This means, we are scheduled to sail on the next to last 5 night sailing of the Disney Dream on Dec. 23, 2012.  There is only one more 5 night sailing after that on Dec. 28.  The 5 night sailings offer guests a “double dip” at Castaway Cay, and as far as I knew, were quite popular.  So, what happened?  I have no idea, but I’m sure there’s some Disney logic behind the decision.  I’m just glad we had an opportunity to sail on one “double dip” and will get a chance to do it again.

Guests wishing to take advantage of a 5 night itinerary had better hurry!  Time is running out!

The itineraries for the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder have yet to be released for 2013.  Speculation abounds. . .

Will the Disney Magic head back to Europe again?  Or, will it sail longer itineraries to South America?

With the Disney Wonder to be based out of Los Angeles, actually San Pedro, for the next few years and the drying up of the Mexican Riviera market, what will be in store for this Disney ship?  Guests on the Mexican Riviera itineraries have been blessed or plagued—depending on your perspective, with double stops in Cabo San Lucas, rather than dropping anchor in Mazatlan—stating cultural/political unrest as the reason for skipping that port.  (Click here to read about our stop in Mazatlan on our Mexican Riviera Disney Cruise Line voyage.)

The Wonder has been making trips to Alaska, yet those are only seasonal voyages.  The Wonder is set to make one sailing to Hawaii in 2012, as is the Disney Magic.  Will the Disney Wonder travel further into the South Pacific or as far as Asia? 

Disney Cruise Line guests will have to wait and see what is on the horizon for at least two of the ships in the fleet.  In addition to the speculation as to the itineraries, there’s speculation as to when the itineraries for the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic will be announced.  2013 may also be the year when extensive renovations are made to the 14 and 15 year old ships, adding features now found on the Disney Dream and soon to be found on the Disney Fantasy by scheduling extensive “dry dock” time.

Guests are welcome to reserve their 2013 Disney Cruise!  Bon Voyage!
