There are no changes at this time to the Disney Fantasy® scheduling.  With this schedule, unless Disney cancels some of the dates already for sale, there is not going to be a dry dock opportunity for the Disney Wonder or the Disney Dream in 2014.

Don’t forget about our onboard credit offer, available on most sailings.  Also we currently have two promotions for our birthday – one giving you double referral credit and the other with a bonus for groups.

Disney Cruise Line 2014 Changes

Yesterday we reported that select sailings on the Disney Dream would be shifting dates.  Today we are reporting that the sailings in late October 2014 through the end of 2014 on the Disney Magic will be switching to the Disney Wonder.  This is because the Disney Magic will be moving to Port Canaveral.  The Disney Wonder schedule previously was not released so this will not be affected.

So what does this all mean?   Here is my speculation:

The Disney Dream already was going to switch sailings from Thursdays and Sundays to Fridays and Mondays around Thanksgiving time.  They are now doing that sooner in October.  From that point on the Dream will be sailing on Fridays and Mondays.  It was indicated that this change is happening because the Disney Magic is moving to Port Canaveral.

We have the Disney Fantasy sailing on Saturdays.  Disney Dream will sail on Fridays and Mondays.  That leaves the remaining days of the week open for the Disney Magic to sail.  I’m guessing that the Disney Magic will sail on Sundays with Western Caribbean sailings.  Right now the Disney Fantasy’s last Western Caribbean sailing is scheduled for November 8.

I think the Disney Wonder will be going into dry dock in October.  The dry dock would be shorter than the Disney Magic’s dry dock.  I don’t think it will be for as long as the Disney Magic will be.  There are only 21 days between the Disney Wonder sailing that returns on October 10 and the next sailing on October 22.  The 2 night sailing on October 20 has been canceled and not replaced, but the October 22 sailing has been replaced.  With three weeks they either won’t do as much or they figure they’ll have it figured out how to do it quicker as the Magic will take 6 weeks.

Additionally, we have heard in the past that the Magic was too top heavy to put Outlook Cafe on it or an AquaDuck.  With the dry dock this fall, they are extending the length of the ship, presumably to allow them to add more weight to the top of the ship.  They may also be doing something with the materials on the top of the ship to lighten it up.  The Wonder doesn’t need these things to be done so it is possible that they won’t need to have as long of a dry dock.

I doubt that we will hear about a dry dock on the Wonder or the Dream before the new Disney Magic itineraries come out.  We know that modifications can be made to the existing sailings next Tuesday and Wednesday, however, we have no idea if the new sailings on the Disney Magic will be available then.  Stay tuned!

Changes for Fall 2014 Disney Dream and Magic Sailings

We have received notice this morning from Disney Cruise Line about changes to the Disney Dream schedule for October and November 2014.  Here are the date changes:

dream change

The reason given for the date changes are that the Disney Magic is moving from Miami to Port Canaveral.  With this, the Disney Dream will alter her schedule to have sailings on Monday and Friday as they can’t have two ships at the terminal on the same day.

We have not been advised of the Disney Magic changes as of yet, but expect to get word this week.  We do know however that the sailings after October 21, 2014 of both the Disney Magic and Disney Dream will be changed.  Since we see that the Disney Dream’s schedule has been removed from the booking engine for the time being, we can see that sailings from November 17, 2014 on appear to not be changing.

Some are speculating that this will allow the Disney Dream to have her drydock in October or November 2014.  I do think the Dream will go to dry dock in November, but not that the sailings for the Dream in October be switched to be on the Disney Magic.  Hopefully this will become clearer in the next couple days.

New 2014 DCL Itineraries Announced

Disney Cruise Line has finally announced the rest of the 2014 cruise itineraries.  The first half of the year were released in early December and can be found here.  This actually wasn’t that long of a wait when we look back at some recent years, but it seems like forever when you are looking for a specific itinerary or date.  We will look at what’s happening ship by ship.  But first, bookings for these itineraries will open on February 14, 2014 (opening February 13 for Platinum and Gold Castaway Club members).

Disney Magic

As was predicted, the Disney Magic will be returning to the Mediterranean to embark on exciting sailings in the summer of 2014.  Select sailings will call Venice, Italy, as her home port.  All Venice sailings will overnight in the city so you can experience the nightlife here.  Disney Magic will visit several ports of call (some for the first time), including Katakolon, Rhodes, Heraklion (Crete), Santorini and Corfu, Greece and Catania, Sicily.

On June 26 and July 5 there will be new 9-night Mediterranean Greek Isles sailings departing from Venice with visits to Katakolon, Pireaus, Kusadasi, Rhodes, Mykonos and then overnighting in Venice.

She will conclude her season in Europe with another Transatlantic sailing returning to San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Here Disney Magic will embark on four 7-night Southern Caribbean sailings with stops in Antigua, St. Lucia, Grenada, Barbados and St. Kitts.  These sailing will be September 20, 27, October 4 and October 11.

Next she will go back to Miami and continue with alternating 4, 5 and 5 night sailings to the Bahamas and Western Caribbean.  This is the same itineraries the Disney Wonder will be sailing in early 2014.

Disney Wonder

Yes, the Disney Wonder is going back to Alaska!  But before she gets there, she will be making a journey through the Panama Canal.

The first sailing out of Vancouver will be special as the Wonder will visit Sitka, Alaska for the very first time on a 9-night sailing.  Following the 9-night sailing, she will continue through the summer with 7-night Alaskan itineraries, with ports of call in Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan and a visit to Tracy Arm fjord.

The 9-night sailing will be on May 24, while the remaining of the sailings will depart on Mondays with the final Alaska sailing on September 1.

Following the Alaskan season, Disney Wonder will go back to the Caribbean and Port Canaveral!

Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream

The Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream will continue it’s schedule of Bahamas and Caribbean sailings out of Port Canaveral in the fall of 2014.
