Disney Cruise Line

Since its launch in 1998, Disney Cruise Line has established itself as a leader in the cruise industry, providing a setting where families can reconnect, adults can recharge and children can experience all Disney has to offer.

Today, Disney Cruise Line continues to expand its blueprint for family cruising with a fleet of four ships – the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

Guests can sail out of ports around the world on exciting itineraries to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Hawaii, Alaska and Europe, among others. The homeport for Disney Cruise Line remains Port Canaveral, Florida, where it has its own specially designed cruise terminal.


Things You Didn’t Know about Disney Cruise Line


Disney Cruise Line hosts spectacular entertainment on its ships, continuing to surprise and delight guests of all ages with a seemingly endless array of offerings.

The Walt Disney Company recently announced that it has entered into a memorandum of agreement with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany to build two additional cruise ships. Each new ship will be approximately 135,000 gross tons – slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy – and each is currently planned to include about 1,250 guest staterooms. While design plans, ship names and itineraries are still in development, the Walt Disney Imagineering team is already dreaming up exciting new ways to create the world’s most magical oceangoing adventures. The schedule calls for the new ships to be completed in 2021 and 2023.

In early 2016, Disney Cruise Line celebrated the legendary stories and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga with the debut of Star Wars Day at Sea exclusively on-board the Disney Fantasy. New in 2017, Disney Cruise Line will nearly double the number of Star Wars Day at Sea voyages, offering 15 special sailings. A deck party, interactive games, photo ops, special merchandise, and film screenings will immerse fans of all ages in a galaxy far far away.

New experiences and fun await guests sailing on the Disney Dream with two new interactive youth areas, Star Wars: Millennium Falcon and Disney Infinity, as well as a spot to satisfy the sweet tooth of cruisers of all ages at Vanelope’s Sweets and Treats.

And on the Disney Magic, “Tangled: The Musical” immerses audiences in Rapunzel’s fairy tale world through lavish production numbers and spellbinding music.

Disney Cruise Line strives to make a positive impact in the many places around the world it calls home. The cast and crew of Disney Cruise Line support numerous charitable organizations that nurture the lives of children and enrich the environment. Crew members lead reading education programs in schools, give to local animal shelters and bring Disney characters to entertain children in port communities around the globe. VoluntEARS also donate their time to paint murals for hospitals and care facilities, raise funds for worldwide disaster relief efforts, and host annual shore cleanups to remove trash and debris from fragile coastlines. Each year, cast and crew members donate thousands of hours of their personal time to benefit worthwhile causes in port communities around the world.
Disney Cruise Line is committed to minimizing its impact on the environment by utilizing new technologies and ongoing programs to increase fuel efficiency, reduce waste and promote conservation worldwide.

Environmental Officers: All Disney Cruise Line ships have dedicated Environmental Officers who are responsible for overseeing compliance with multiple regulations and onboard environmental programs, including all shipboard recycling and sanitation efforts, as well as monitoring the ship’s overall water quality and supply.

Recycle/Reuse: Shipboard recycling processes annually eliminate more than 600 tons of metals, plastic, glass and paper from traditional waste streams. In addition, responsible construction methods have been utilized on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy to source flooring and carpeting that is made from sustainable, organic and recyclable alternatives.

Fuel Efficiency: Disney Cruise Line was the first in the industry to utilize an innovative hull coating on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder that is 100 percent non-toxic and increases fuel efficiency by reducing surface resistance in open water. The Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy have been designed to be even more hydrodynamic vessels than their predecessors, with optimized propulsion systems and hulls for increased efficiency.

Energy Conservation: Condensation from the shipboard air conditioning units is reclaimed and reused to wash the decks, saving up to 30 million gallons of fresh water each year.
