Where Will the Disney Cruise Line Ships Be In 2024?
Here’s a quick overview at what’s planned so far. To see specific cruise itineraries and sail dates, look at the monthly entries further down this page.
The Disney Dream cruise ship spends the first half of 2024 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, continuing the string of Caribbean Cruises it had begun offering from there in November 2023.
In May, the ship heads out on a Transatlantic voyage that positions it in Europe for the summer travel season.
The Dream will offer a series of European itineraries that sail out of Barcelona, Spain and Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy from early May through late July — and from Southampton, England from late July through mid-September.
Disney Dream sailings between mid-September and mid-October are not yet released, but it’s likely the ship will remain in Europe during that timeframe.
Following a Transatlantic voyage in late-October, the ship returns to Fort Lauderdale in November and offers Bahamian and Caribbean cruises for the remainder of the year.
The Disney Fantasy will be based out of Port Canaveral, Florida throughout 2024.
From early 2024 through the end of September, the Fantasy primarily offers Caribbean cruises. From October onward, the ship adds in a number of Bahamas sailings including Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.
The Disney Magic cruise ship rings in the new year in Galveston, Texas, continuing the series of Caribbean cruises it had begun a few weeks earlier.
In February, it briefly relocates to New Orleans, Louisiana for a month of Caribbean cruises out of that port before returning to Galveston in March.
The Caribbean cruises continue from Galveston through mid-April, when the ship relocates to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The San Juan Caribbean cruises run through mid-May, when the ship relocates for an extended assignment to Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale), Florida.
In Fort Lauderdale, the ship will mainly sail on Bahamian itineraries (featuring Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, Disney’s newest private port), with an occasional Caribbean cruise in the mix.
The Disney Magic briefly returns to San Juan for part of November, then returns to Galveston for the remainder of the year.
The brand new Disney Treasure cruise ship just barely squeaks into 2024’s sailing schedule; the ship’s 7-night Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida start in late December.
The Disney Wish has the simplest of all sailing schedules.
The ship will be based in Port Canaveral, Florida throughout all of 2024, sailing on 3- and 4-Night Bahamian Cruises.
The Disney Wonder cruise ship starts 2024 in the southern hemisphere, continuing the inaugural season of Disney’s Australia and New Zealand cruises which began in October 2023. These cruises sail out of Sydney, Australia and Melbourne, Australia in January and early February.
Starting in mid-February, the ship goes on a series of one-way cruises that take it to Honolulu, Hawaii, followed by Vancouver, Canada, and finally to San Diego, California.
Once the ship arrives in San Diego in mid-March, it begins a string of Baja cruises that last through early May.
The ship then returns to Vancouver to begin the 2024 Alaska Cruise season, which lasts through late September.
From there, a series of one-way cruises take the ship back to Honolulu and then to Brisbane, Australia to start another series of Australia and New Zealand cruises for the remainder of the year and into early 2025 (sailing out of Brisbane, Auckland, Sydney, and Melbourne).
