Disney Cruise Line alters 2013 sailings from Galveston

Rate this Entry
Mary Kraemer from MousePlanet sponsor MouseEar Vacations just sent us an update about Disney Cruise Line's plans for the 2013 Galveston sailings onboard the Disney Magic. Disney is converting three of the planned 8-night cruises into six 4-night cruises, and adding stops at Castaway Cay and Port Canaveral to some of the remaining 8-night cruises to satisfy customer demand.

New 4-night cruises:

The 8-night cruises previously scheduled to depart 2/1/13; 3/15/13 and 4/12/13 have been canceled. Instead, Disney will offer 4-night cruises to Cozumel departing 2/1/13; 2/5/13; 3/15/13 3/19/13; 4/12/13 and 4/16/13.

Disney has not yet released the itinerary for these 4-night cruises. Passengers who already booked one of the affected sailings will be contacted and offered the opportunity to re-book a different cruise, or cancel the trip entirely.

New ports for 8-night cruises:

Disney is also modifying the 8-night cruises scheduled to depart on 1/18/13; 2/15/13; 3/1/13; 3/29/13; 4/26/13 and 5/10/13 to replace the Grand Cayman and Costa Maya stops with a day at Disney's private island Castaway Cay, and a day at Port Canaveral, Florida. Passengers will receive transportation to Walt Disney World and a one-day park-hopper ticket. Disney says this change is due to customer demand.
New itinerary:

o Friday Galveston
o Saturday Day At Sea
o Sunday Day At Sea
o Monday Disney’s Castaway Cay
o Tuesday Port Canaveral, Florida
o Wednesday Day At Sea
o Thursday Key West, Florida
