Disney Announces 2012 Schedule!

CELEBRATION, Fla. (April 6, 2011) – For the first time ever, Disney Cruise Line will set sail from three new ports in 2012 – New York, Seattle and Galveston, Texas – making the Disney family cruise vacation more accessible to guests around the country. Additionally, the cruise line will offer more choices than ever before with several new itineraries planned.

“In 2012, we’re making it easier than ever for families to enjoy a Disney Cruise Line vacation by offering cruises from a variety of regional homeports,” said Disney Cruise Line President Karl Holz. “Guests can now enjoy a magical, one-of-a-kind Disney cruise experience with the convenience of departures from their own backyard.”

2012 New York Schedule

Beginning May 25, 2012, the Disney Magic will sail a total of 20 cruises from New York – including eight-night cruises to the Bahamas and five-night cruises up the New England coast to Canada plus two-night cruises that will give a sampling of the Disney Cruise Line experience over a weekend.

* The eight Bahamas cruises will include a day at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay; Nassau, Bahamas; and a stop at Port Canaveral, Fla., giving guests an opportunity to visit the nearby Walt Disney World Resort. As part of this itinerary, each guest will receive a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and roundtrip transportation between their Disney ship and the resort.

Rates for the new eight-night Bahamian cruise itinerary departing from New York start at $1,240 per person for a standard inside stateroom, based on double occupancy.

* The nine five-night cruises up the New England coast will call at Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Saint John, New Brunswick. In these popular Canadian ports, guests can soak in splendid natural vistas, explore historic sites, visit quaint cafes and charming shops, and browse Canada’s oldest farmer’s market.

Rates for the new five-night Canadian cruise itinerary departing from New York start at $715 per person for a standard inside stateroom, based on double occupancy.

* Three two-night cruises (June 15, July 13 and Aug. 10) out of New York are perfect for families looking for a quick getaway with a day at sea over a weekend. Rates for the new two-night cruises start at $370 per person for a standard inside stateroom, based on double occupancy.

My phone's ringing off the hook and email's going crazy. I'm sure Carol's just as crazed. GO DCL!

If you're thinking about one of these cruises, you'll want to get in contact with Carol right away. You can start booking tomorrow for Gold/Platinum Castaway Club members and Friday for everyone else. The prices will only go up as supply of staterooms gets smaller so book NOW!

... moved.

Thanks so much for posting this, Nancy! I heard rumors yesterday (thanks to the link Kimberly posted on another site). I was thinking they would send the Magic to Europe and leave her there. I was secretly hoping they'd decide to do 3/4 nighters out of Los Angeles which would give people another reason to come visit Disneyland. Plus the selection of 3/4 night cruises here is pitiful (only Carnival). But, I think she'll stay in better shape on the longer cruises. Galveston is interesting, especially for all our MS friends in Texas. But 8 night Bahamas? I'm glad to see them sail out of Seattle instead of Vancouver! and glad to see them commit to another year of Alaska.

I love that the Magic is coming to Texas. But the dates stink!

There's no way we can pull the kids out of school for a cruise again. DS will be in 2nd grade by then. I had no problem taking them out of preschool this year for 3 weeks to go through the Panama Canal because it was such a special itinerary. But no way for a week to go to Mexico.

I just read this on-line...I wish they were going out of Balitmore instead, it's closer to me than NYC...

I expected NY because it's a huge cruise market but Galveston really surprised me, as has the big reaction to it. Several people were interested in Hawaii but the dates gave them trouble, however one's still a go since they have preschoolers.

Well being in Maine, I love the New York ones. I would LOVE the 8 day bahamas cruise from NYC. So much cheaper with flights and no need for overnight stay.

I will probably opt for a 5 night cruise to Canada however. Gosh I wish they were stopping in Portland so I could get photos of her in port.
