As reality sinks in that 2016 is gone and 2017 is here, it’s a perfect time to look into booking a Disney cruise. The most important piece of advice any travel agent or Disney Cruise Line veteran will give you is to book your cruise as early as possible to save money. This is a look, in no particular order, at the top 5 reasons 2017 is the year to take a Disney cruise.
1) Star Wars Day at Sea
Being offered for the second year, these unique sailings offer passengers one day entirely devoted to the Star Wars universe. Last year’s Star Wars sailings involved special character meet and greets, themed dining menus, and even Star Wars fireworks at the end of the night. Guests even awoke to Star Wars music playing in the hallways. These special sailings are being offered on the Disney Fantasy on select dates through April 8.
2) Marvel Day at Sea
While Star Wars sailings are entering their second year, Marvel Day at Sea sailings are a new addition for 2017. If you’d rather interact with your favorite superheroes instead of Jedi Knights, these sailings are right up your alley. This day-long event will feature Marvel Super Heroes and Villains from The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, plus Spider-Man. There will be entertainment and meet and greets planned around the ship throughout the day.
One thing anyone that has visited the Disney Parks during the holiday season will say is, “no one does the holidays like Disney.” Not only is that true in the theme parks, but it is true of holiday sailings on Disney Cruise Line. The ships are “decked out” to enhance the feeling of celebration. And for those that don’t enjoy celebrating in November or December, there are also voyages around Halloween that rival the Halloween parties at the stateside parks.
4) Plenty of available space on Caribbean Dates
If you’re looking to sail on Disney Cruise Line for the first time or you’ve already been and are looking for a good way to take another cruise, look into sailings to the Caribbean in 2017. These 3 and 4 night itineraries are a great way to experience a Disney cruise without committing to a week or more. And, since they are short sailings, there are plenty of available dates in 2017, which also translates into the best prices for travelers. Good availability combined with great pricing offers a great chance to book early and save money.
5) Refurbs on the Disney Wonder
The Wonder was given a full dry-dock refurb in 2016, making 2017 a great time to check out these changes! A new Frozen stage show has been added to the evening entertainment lineup, as well as new nightclubs in the adults-only space, now known as “After Hours.” Kids ages 3-12 will have a great time in the Oceaneer Club checking out the new Marvel Super Hero Academy, where they can virtually interact with their favorite super hero characters! A new dining location, Tiana’s Place, will join the regular dining rotations, and will serve up New Orleans-inspired cuisine, along with live entertainment. The Disney Wonder sails to destinations around the world, so it’s the perfect time to book a cruise and check out the re-imagined ship!
