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.
Lighthouse Point is accessible to guests sailing aboard the Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Designed with families in mind, Lighthouse Point is infused with the “colour and energy of Bahamian artistry, and developed with a commitment to conservation at its core.”
The seven-night inaugural sailing will take place from Port Canaveral, Florida on June 8 onboard Disney Fantasy.
The itinerary will feature two stops at Lighthouse Point and one day at Castaway Cay.
On June 6, a three-night preview cruise on the Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale will offer a sneak peek of Lighthouse Point with limited access to some areas.
Following the inaugural voyage, Lighthouse Point will be a featured port of call on select three-, four- and five-night sailings to The Bahamas and the Caribbean on the Disney Magic out of Fort Lauderdale.
These itineraries will vary stops between Lighthouse Point and Castaway Cay, with five special departures including both Disney Cruise Line island destinations.
New European Destinations
In summer 2024, the Disney Dream returns to premier European destinations in 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, including Valencia, Spain; Haugesund, Norway; and Hamburg, Germany.
Also returning for the first time since 2014 are three Mediterranean destinations: Catania, Italy; Kusadasi, Turkey; and Valletta, Malta.
Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruises from Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) will range from five 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.
Guests can choose from five-, seven- and nine-night sailings to view majestic wildlife and stunning scenery in iconic places like Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan and glacier viewing along the Stikine Icecap.
Disney’s world-class entertainment, dining and guest service create a family-friendly vacation that celebrates the spirit of Alaska both on land and on board.
Tropical Escapes to The Bahamas and the Caribbean from Port Canaveral
The 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, a picturesque private island oasis in The Bahamas that offers something for everyone in the family.
The Disney Wish will feature three- and four-night Bahamian vacations, while the 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.
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.
