Ahead of a scheduled announcement from Disney Cruise Line in New York City on April 6 in which Disney is expected to make its itinerary plans known for 2012, a purported press release has been leaked and already making waves by offering up all of the juicy details.
The news comes by way of Dynamic Travel and Cruises, a travel agency located in Texas, who claims to have obtained it from a reporter at the Houston Chronicle who claims it came off of an official Disney website, although the original source appears unclear at this time.
DISNEY MAGIC (NEW YORK, GALVESTON)
With the Disney Fantasy moving in at Port Canaveral, the displaced Disney Magic will be headed north to find a temporary home in New York City before moving south to Galveston. Meanwhile, the Disney Wonder, which will continue sailings out of the port of Los Angeles, will also be sailing out of Seattle.
For New York, the Disney Magic will sail a total of 20 cruises, including eight-night cruises to the Bahamas, five-night cruises to Canada and two-night cruises at sea.
The eight eight-night Bahamas cruises (5/25, 6/2, 6/22, 6/30, 7/20, 7/28, 8/17, 8/25) will include a day at Castaway Cay, Nassau and a stop at Port Canaveral. Reportedly, as part of the Port Canaveral stop, each guest will receive a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket with roundtrip transportation between their Disney ship and the resort. Rates 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 (6/10, 6/17, 7/8, 7/15, 8/5, 8/12, 9/2, 9/7, 9/12) 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 start at $715 per person for a standard inside stateroom, based on double occupancy.
