Families thinking about taking a Disney Cruise in 2019 are in luck as Disney sailings for 2019 itineraries between January – May 2019 are currently on sale!
2019 seems ages away, why would I wanna book so early? As frequent Disney travelers will tell you, when it comes to sailing with Disney, the early bird definitely catches the worm. Disney runs discounted fares slightly differently than other cruise lines. Because Disney has a small fleet (only 4 ships), it is rare that they will run last minute discounts as most sailings do tend to fill up. Instead, what they will do is offer more affordable rates for those booking as early as possible. With that in mind, bookings will be at the most affordable during on-sale dates and prices will increase the closer you get to your sailing dates. It’s not uncommon for guests who book early to pay hundreds less than those waiting until closer to the sailing dates – If you want the best savings book as early as possible.
Is Disney Cruise Line offering anything new in 2019? – Disney announced earlier this month a few of the highlights of its 2019 sailing schedule. We are excited to share these with you and they are as follows:
An expanded two month season from San Diego to Baja and Mexican Riviera – From March to May 2019, the Disney Wonder will offer a variety of 2 to 7-night cruises to Mexico from San Diego. These itineraries provide a perfect taste of Mexican culture, breathtaking beaches, water activities, cliff diving as well as a chance to zipline through the jungle.
Disney Wonder offering 3 special January Cruises out of San Juan, Puerto Rico to Southern Caribbean – In January of 2019, Disney Cruise Lines will offer three special Disney Wonder cruises to the Southern Caribbean from San Juan where guests will be able to sit back and relax on sun-drenched beaches and enjoy those warm Southern Caribbean waters. On these 6 and 7-night sailings, guests can explore the culture of the fascinating islands, sunbathe and enjoy local cuisine and marketplaces.
Even more options for those headed to The Bahamas and the Caribbean – With 3 ships making Port Canaveral their hub in 2019, guests looking for the Caribbean and Bahamian sailings will be spoiled for choice. From 3, 4 and 7-night options there’s bound to be something for all budgets. The Disney Fantasy will offer 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings, Disney Dream will offer 3 and 4-night Bahamian cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay and the Disney Wonder will offer 3 and 4-night itineraries throughout February.
Set sail to the Bahamas or the Caribbean from Miami – The Disney Magic will kick off 2019 by offering 4 and 5-night Bahamian and Western Caribbean cruises from Miami. Bahamian stops include Castaway Cay, Nassau and Key West. Western Caribbean itineraries will stop in Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
I’m interested in booking an Early 2019 Disney Cruise. How much would I need to put down? For most cruises, the standard deposit required to secure your reservation is 20% of the total fare. Terms and Conditions will be different for those booking concierge or club level rooms. No further payment is due until your final payment date which varies depending on Castaway Club status and length of sail. However, guests booking most 2019 cruises would not need to pay off their cruise until Autumn of 2018.
I’m interested in going on a Disney Cruise but not until later in 2019. How long do I have to wait before booking? Disney should release packages for Summer of 2019 in February of 2018 and sailings for Winter of 2019 in Summer of 2018. We encourage you to keep following along with Disney Addicts for the latest updates regarding Disney Cruise Line on-sale dates.
