Floridians will have a ton of great options if a cruise is sounding like just what the doctor ordered. Disney Cruise Line has announced that the Disney Wish and Disney Fantasy will sail from Port Canaveral while the Disney Dream will depart from Miami.

Aboard the all-new Disney Wish, you can enjoy a three- or four-night trip to Nassau, Bahamas, and Castaway Cay. The Disney Fantasy will offer seven-night trips to the Eastern and Western Caribbean as well as an eight-night trip that includes two days in Bermuda.

The Disney Dream sails out of Miami with a wide range of destinations. You can opt for four- and five-night cruises to dream locales like Grand Cayman; Nassau; Castaway Cay; and Cozumel, Mexico. There’s also a five-night cruise that stops at Castaway Cay twice.

If you aren’t fortunate enough to call Florida home, don’t fret. Disney Cruise Lines is also offering trips to the Bahamas, Caribbean, and Mexico from three other major ports.

Starting in January 2023, the Disney Magic will offer four-, five-, six-, and seven-night cruises to the Bahamas and Western Caribbean. Along the way, these cruises stop through beautiful destinations like Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico.

From February through March, the Magic makes its debut departures from New Orleans. You can book a four-, five-, or six-night cruise to hot spots like Grand Cayman and Cozumel.

Not to be left out, the Disney Wonder returns to the West Coast in April and May 2023. Sailing from San Diego, the Disney Wonder will offer three- to seven-night cruises to Baja and the Mexican Riviera.

The Disney Wonder will also run a seven-night cruise that goes to Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, and Banderas Bay.

If that all sounds great, you’d better start game-planning. Bookings open as soon as Thursday, and you’re going to want to act quickly so you don’t get left ashore.
