Europe and Alaska are frequently at the top of enthusiastic travellers’ bucket lists. Still, Disney Cruise Line has another exotic location to add to your must-see list for summer 2024 – and, surprise; it’s only available to Disney Cruise Line guests!
Lighthouse Point, Disney Cruise Line’s new island destination in The Bahamas, will welcome families for the first time in June 2024, kicking off a season full of new and popular itineraries across the world. You will be able to pick between spectacular trips to magnificent destinations such as the Mediterranean, northern Europe, Alaska, and the Caribbean, in addition to the first sailings to the newest Bahamas retreat.
First Sailings to Lighthouse Point
Disney Cruise Line will launch its newest Bahamas destination, Lighthouse Point, on the island of Eleuthera in June 2024. From Fort Lauderdale, Florida, cruises on the Disney Magic will visit this vibrant beach resort designed with families in mind, imbued with the colour and vitality of Bahamian craftsmanship, and built with sustainability and conservation at its core.
On 8 June, a seven-night inaugural voyage on the Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral, Florida, will allow you to be among the first to make a splash in the crystal-clear waters of this new Lighthouse Point destination. This ideal Disney Cruise Line Island destination itinerary features not one but two stops at Lighthouse Point… but wait, there’s more! During this once-in-a-lifetime voyage, your family will enjoy sun-drenched solitude at Castaway Cay. A three-night preview cruise on the Disney Magic leaving Fort Lauderdale on 6 June will include a sneak tour of Lighthouse Point with limited access to certain sections.
Following the debut voyage, Lighthouse Point will be a highlighted stop on select three-, four-, and five-night Disney Magic sailings to The Bahamas and Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale. These South Florida-based itineraries will alternate stops between Lighthouse Point and Castaway Cay, with five special sailings, including Disney Cruise Line Island destinations.
Can you think of anything better than sailing the Mediterranean with Captain Mickey and Captain Minnie at the helm? Those dreams will come to life in summer 2024 as the Disney Dream returns to premier European destinations in the Mediterranean, Greek Isles, British Isles and popular locales in the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland.
These sailings will feature a number of new ports of call, including Valencia, Spain; Haugesund, Norway; and Hamburg, Germany, along with three Mediterranean destinations that will return for the first time since 2014: Catania, Italy; Kusadasi, Turkey; and Valletta, Malta.
Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruises from Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) will range from five to 11 nights. Northern Europe and British Isles sailings offer itineraries anywhere from three nights to one 12-night voyage that includes the Norwegian fjords, three days in Iceland and an overnight stay in Reykjavik.
Cruises to Alaska from Vancouver, Canada, will return on the Disney Wonder from May through September 2024, offering more chances for your family to experience the natural splendour and adventure of “The Last Frontier” with five-, seven- and nine-night sailings. Majestic wildlife and stunning scenery in iconic places like Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan and glacier viewing along the Stikine Icecap will blend with Disney’s world-class entertainment, dining and guest service to create a family-friendly vacation that celebrates the spirit of Alaska both on land and on board.
Tropical Escapes to The Bahamas and the Caribbean from Florida
In addition to the inaugural season of Lighthouse Point sailings from Fort Lauderdale on the Disney Magic, the Disney Fantasy and Disney Wish will travel to sun-kissed islands throughout The Bahamas and Caribbean in summer of 2024. All sailings on these Port Canaveral-based ships will feature a visit to Castaway Cay, a picturesque private island oasis in The Bahamas that offers something for everyone in the family, from fun and relaxation to adventurous water activities.
The Disney Wish will feature three- and four-night Bahamian vacations, while the Disney Fantasy will sail to popular ports in the eastern and western Caribbean on seven-night cruises. One five-night Disney Fantasy voyage in July will visit Nassau and feature two stops in Castaway Cay. A special 10-night southern Caribbean sailing will give your family another opportunity to visit Lighthouse Point with additional visits to the islands of Antigua, St. Lucia, Dominica, Tortola and Castaway Cay.
Bookings open to the public on March 30, 2023, so it’s not too early to start planning. For more details, visit the Summer 2024 itineraries page of disneycruise.com and plan your dream vacation!
