Disney News: Disney’s first cruise ship returns to Port Canaveral

The first ship on Disney’s cruise line, The Magic, will return to Port Canaveral in early 2014. The ship called Port Canaveral its home back in 1998 but was recently relocated to Galveston, Texas where it is currently based. Docking alongside the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy, it will make the Brevard port the largest Disney base. Disney’s other curise ship, the Disney Wonder, will continue to keep Miami as its homeport.

New port of call: Falmouth, Jamaica

The Fantasy will add a new island on its cruise route. The seven-night cruise through the western Caribbean has added Jamaica as a new port of call. The cruise ship will stop at Falmouth, a city full of Jamaica’s rich history and culture. Tours on the island are plentiful and range through some of the following possibilities:

  • Jamaican cuisine such as the signature jerk recipe
  • touring Dunn’s River Falls
  • a bamboo raft river ride through lush tropical scenery

Rates: $1,120/person with a standard inside stateroom (double occupancy).

Castaway Cay

Disney’s private island of Castaway Cay, is now the focal point for all cruises during the early half of 2014 as all of Disney’s four cruise ships will be departing from ports in Florida.
