No 2013 Itineraries for the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder Yet

Disney Cruise Line postponed its grand announcement from Miami, home of Carnival Cruise Line owner and operator of the Costa Concordia,  originally scheduled for Wednesday, January 18, 2012.  Speculations were that the 2013 itineraries for the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder would be announced, and even the end of 2012 itineraries for the Disney Wonder after cancelling four Mexican Riviera itineraries for December 2012. (Click here to read more about the Wonder's itineraries being canceled.)

Enthusiasts will just have to wait.  Disney Cruise Line doesn’t want any of their announcements clouded by the Concordia tragedy which happened on Saturday, 100 years after the sinking of the Titanic. 

Who can blame them?  Though, they are running out of time.  The Disney Fantasy is set for its Maiden Voyage on March 31, 2012.  Disney Cruise Line wouldn’t want any announcement to be overshadowed by news of the christening and inaugural voyages of the Fantasy.  And, the 2013 itineraries for the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy have been released since October, 2011. (Click here to read more.)

Cruise line and travel reporters have their ears and eyes focused in Italy as more mysteries of the Concordia crash are uncovered.  Another reason to postpone any industry announcements.

So we wait. . . for the announcement of the date of the announcement, and then the announcement itself.

Rumors and speculation abound with hints at Caribbean ports being reserved with a now unnamed Disney ship.  European ports of call have the Disney Magic for specific dates.  Will there be transatlantic cruises?  Panama Canal cruises?  Cruises from Miami?  Only time, and Disney Cruise Line, will tell.
