Disney Cruise Line: In The News
There’s a new sail away party coming for guests on the Disney Wonder! Starting with the February 3 sailing, guests are being encouraged to dress up and “Disney Bound” as a favorite character, and join the party as they wave farewell to responsibility for a few days. Mickey’s Sail-A-Wave deck party is also expected to make its way to the Disney Magic later this month.
Here’s this week’s special offers. Most every week of the year, Disney Cruise Line releases special offers for Florida Residents and U.S. Military Personnel. There are also frequently IGT/OGT/VGT rates available for all guests to book. These offers are extremely limited in availability, and all come with certain restrictions, but the prices are amazing! You can book these online, on the phone, or with your travel agent. These are the current offers available this week:
The following films are being shown aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships this month:
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
- Avengers: Infinity War
- Solo: A Star Wars Story
- Incredibles 2
- Ant-Man and The Wasp
- Christopher Robin
- The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
- Thor: Ragnarok
- Ralph Breaks the Internet
- Mary Poppins Returns
For future reference, films debut on Disney Cruise Line the same day of their initial release in the United States. Films do vary by ship. Show times are available in your Personal Navigator or the official Disney Cruise Line app.
