Disney Cruise Line’s two biggest ships, the Dream and the Fantasy, will continue to be based at Port Canaveral through the end of 2019, the cruise line announced a few days ago.
Port Canaveral is an appealing cruise port for Disney Cruise Line because it is the closest port to the Walt Disney World theme park complex in Orlando. Disney passengers prefer combining their cruises with a visit to Disney World.
The 4,000-passenger Disney Dream will sail on three- and four-night Bahamian cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay. Its ports of call will be Nassau and Castaway Cay, which is Disney’s private island. The cruises will sail out of Port Canaveral on Fridays and Monday.
Its sister ship, the Disney Fantasy, that has the capacity of 4,000 passengers, will offer a variety of seven-night sailings to the Caribbean from Port Canaveral, with Saturday departures. All of the Fantasy’s cruises also include a stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. Its Eastern Caribbean itineraries will visit the Virgin Islands of Tortola and St. Thomas. Its Western Caribbean cruises will call on Cozumel in Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Falmouth.
Additionally, Disney will offer a special 14-night cruise from Port Canaveral to San Diego through the Panama Canal.
