In early 2020, Disney Cruise Line will add a brand-new homeport in New Orleans and return to the Hawaiian Islands. Disney Cruise Line will also return to Puerto Rico for a limited time and continue itineraries to tropical destinations from Florida and California.

First-Time Home Port in New Orleans
In 2020, the Disney Wonder will embark on a variety of Caribbean and Bahamian cruises from New Orleans—the first time Disney Cruise Line will have a home port in Louisiana. Before or after their Disney cruise, guests can venture into the city to savor the distinct flavors of famous New Orleans cuisine, visit family-friendly museums and parks, and revel in the sweet melodies of world-renowned jazz music. Travelers will delight in the Southern charm of this new homeport, and Disney fans will find magic around every corner as they recognize the iconic sights and sounds that inspired the beloved animated film “The Princess and the Frog.”

The Disney Wonder will embark on six cruises during this limited-time season from New Orleans, including 4-, 6- and 7-night Western Caribbean sailings; a 7-night Bahamian cruise; and a 14-night Panama Canal voyage, departing Feb. 7 through March 6.

Return to Hawaii
After a 5-year hiatus, the Disney Wonder will return to Hawaii in early 2020 for two special cruises: a 9-night voyage to Honolulu from Vancouver, Canada, on April 29, and a 10-night sailing back to Vancouver on May 8.

During these dream vacations, guests will discover the breathtaking beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, including the famous beaches of Waikiki on Oahu; the views from high atop the summit of Haleakala Crater on Maui; the lush tropical gardens and waterfalls of Kauai; and the diverse natural wonders of Hawaii Island.

Popular Itineraries from Puerto Rico & California
The Disney Wonder continues its standout season with returns to popular homeports on both coasts. First, the ship sets sail for the Southern Caribbean during two 7-night voyages departing Jan. 19 and 26 from San Juan, Puerto Rico, followed by a 5-night Bahamian cruise. Then beginning on March 20, the ship embarks on seven sailings to Baja and the Mexican Riviera, ranging in length from two to seven nights, from San Diego, California.

Tropical Getaways from Florida
Disney Cruise Line will have three ships sailing to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Florida in early 2020, and every cruise includes a day of fun in the sun on Disney’s private Bahamian island reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, Castaway Cay.

From Miami, the Disney Magic will sail 3-, 4- and 5-night Bahamian cruises and 5-night Western Caribbean cruises. From Port Canaveral, the Disney Fantasy will sail 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, plus two special sailings at six and eight nights each. From Port Canaveral, the Disney Dream will sail 3- and 4-night Bahamian cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay.

Bookings open Oct. 4, 2018. More details on 2020 itineraries can be found on Ports and Itineraries for 2020. For more information, visit
