Disney Cruise Lines are headed to the Big Easy in 2020

Get ready to grab your Mickey ears and head for the high seas. For the first time, Disney Cruise Lines will join the likes of Carnival, Royal Carribean and Norwegian in calling New Orleans a home port in 2020. The Disney Wonder will set sail on six cruises during this limited-time season, including four, six and seven-night Western Carribean sailings, a seven-night Bahamaina cruise and a 14-night Panama Canal voyage from February 7 – March 6 of 2020.

The Disney Wonder, a 984-foot long cruise ship was the second to launch in the Disney fleet with its maiden voyage in 1999. Among its 11 decks of fun, you’ll find deck parties, live shows, character greetings, first-run movies, youth clubs, three themed pools, a spa, a lounge and much more. “And with Disney’s one-of-a kind Rotational Dining, you’ll “rotate” to one of 3 different dining locations boasting a unique menu each night of your cruise, accompanied by servers who know your every taste.”

“This marks the first time Disney Cruise Line will have a home port in Louisiana. Not only will this provide families from the region with the magic of having a Disney cruise ship in their own backyard, but it will also draw families from farther away to discover this incredible city before they set sail,” Disney Cruise said in a statement.
