Looking to infinity and beyond, or at least just beyond next year, are Disney Cruise Line’s early 2018 itineraries, now open for booking, featuring the homeports of Miami, Florida; Port Canaveral, Florida; San Diego, California and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Destinations from January through May will include the Caribbean, Bahamas and Mexican Riviera, as well as feature the company’s inaugural visit to Bonaire.
Spreading the Floridian love outside of Port Canaveral, the Disney Magic will embark on 4- and 5-night cruises to the Bahamas from Miami, as well as 5-night Western Caribbean voyages from the homeport. Each itinerary features a signature stop at the line’s private island of Castaway Cay (pictured above). Bahamian ports encompass Nassau and Key West, and Western Caribbean ones include Grand Cayman or Cozumel.
