First Sailings to Lighthouse Point
In June 2024, Disney Cruise Line will debut its newest Bahamian destination on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point. Guests sailing aboard Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale will discover a vibrant beach retreat designed with families in mind. The resort will be infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry and developed with a commitment to conservation.
A 7-night inaugural sailing aboard Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral on June 8 will allow guests to be among the first to make a splash in the crystal-clear waters of this new destination. This ultimate DCL island destination itinerary will feature two stops at Lighthouse Point and one day at Castaway Cay.
On June 6, a 3-night preview cruise on Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale will offer a sneak peek of Lighthouse Point. However, there will only be limited access to some areas.
Following the inaugural voyage, Lighthouse Point will be a featured port of call on select sailings to The Bahamas and Caribbean on Disney Magic. These itineraries will vary stops between Lighthouse Point and Castaway Cay. Additionally, there will be five special departures including both Disney Cruise Line island destinations.
New European Destinations
In summer 2024, Disney Dream returns to premier European destinations. Itineraries include the Mediterranean, Greek Isles, British Isles, and popular locales in the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland.
These sailings will feature a number of new ports of call. These news ports include Valencia, Spain; Haugesund, Norway; and Hamburg, Germany. Further, three Mediterranean destinations will return for the first time since 2014: Catania, Italy; Kusadasi, Turkey; and Valletta, Malta.
Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruises from Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) will range from 5 to 11 nights. Northern Europe and British Isles sailings will offer itineraries anywhere from three nights to one 12-night voyage that includes the Norwegian fjords, three days in Iceland, and an overnight stay in Reykjavik.
Adventures in Alaska
Cruises to Alaska from Vancouver, Canada, will return on the Disney Wonder from May through September 2024. These sailings will offer more chances for families to experience the natural splendor and adventure of “The Last Frontier” with five-, seven- and nine-night sailings.
Majestic wildlife and stunning scenery in iconic places like Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan and glacier viewing along the Stikine Icecap will blend with Disney’s world-class entertainment, dining, and guest service to create a family-friendly vacation that celebrates the spirit of Alaska both on land and on board.
Tropical Escapes to The Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral
Disney Fantasy and Disney Wish will travel to sun-kissed islands throughout The Bahamas and Caribbean in summer 2024. All sailings on these Port Canaveral-based ships will feature a visit to Castaway Cay. This picturesque private island oasis in The Bahamas offers something for everyone in the family, from fun and relaxation to adventurous water activities.
Disney Wish will feature three- and four-night Bahamian vacations. Disney Fantasy will sail to popular ports in the eastern and western Caribbean on seven-night cruises. One five-night Disney Fantasy voyage in July will take families to Nassau with two stops in Castaway Cay. Additionally, a special 10-night southern Caribbean sailing will give families another opportunity to visit Lighthouse Point with additional visits to the islands of Antigua, St. Lucia, Dominica, Tortola, and Castaway Cay.
