Disney Cruise Line is heading to infinity and beyond, well, just early 2018 to begin with, as its fleet is scheduled to head from popular homeports to the Caribbean, Bahamas and Mexican Riviera from January to May.

Miami, Florida; Port Canaveral, Florida; San Diego, California and San Juan, Puerto Rico will be reprised as bases, and Bonaire will be featured for the first time in forever – appropriate since the newly refurbished Disney Wonder, with its new Frozen show, will be the ship deployed there.

Best of all, bookings are now open.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

The big news from Disney is the line’s inaugural visit to the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire, located north of South America and featuring an ideal climate and abundance of water sports opportunities on the Disney Wonder‘s 7-day January 28 sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

In fact, this is just one of three weeklong voyages roundtrip from the Southern Caribbean homeport as the ship will also leave on January 14 and 21 on routes with a combo of two sea days and four ports like Curacao, Aruba, St. Lucia, Martinique, Antigua and St. Kitts.

San Diego, California

It’s always a pleasure to see my very own homeport of San Diego, California listed, especially as cruise traffic from the city picks up as the Mexican Riviera becomes popular again. Disney will send the Disney Wonder to the Baja area on seven voyages accordingly.

Roundtrips from America’s Finest City will include 2- and 3-night sailings to Ensenada, Mexico and 5-night ones to both Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, and the briefest will leave on Fridays to make for convenient weekend getaways.

Port Canaveral, Florida

With Walt Disney World so close, Disney will continue to make Port Canaveral, Florida and its exclusive pier facilities a core cruise hub. From here, the Disney Fantasy will still alternate between weeklong Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises, and the Disney Dream will rotate 3- and 4-night sailings to Nassau.

Also, from February 8 to April 8, the Disney Wonder will mimic all three itinerary durations, and all sailings from Port Canaveral will showcase a stop at Disney’s private island of Castaway Cay.

Miami, Florida

To offer more Floridian homeport variety, the Disney Magic will embark on 4- and 5-night cruises to the Bahamas and 5-night sailings to the Western Caribbean from Miami, all of which will include Castaway Cay.

Meanwhile, Bahamian ports will be Nassau and Key West and the Western Caribbean ones will include Grand Cayman or Cozumel.
