Summer 2018 DCL

Thinking about sailing the seven seas with Disney Cruise Line? When it comes to cruising it pays to plan ahead.  Booking your cruise as early as possible allows for greater flexibility when it comes to rates, sailing dates and staterooms.  Unlike booking a Walt Disney World vacation package where discounts are released closer to your arrival date, the best deals for Disney Cruises are always further out.  As sailings and ships start to fill up, the prices will go up. This means that those waiting until the last-minute can pay hundreds more than those booking the cruises when they are first released.

So how far in advance can I book if I’m planning on cruising in 2018? – Disney has already released itineraries through until the end of May 2018 and these include the follow routes:

  • 2-Night California Baja Cruise from San Diego
  • 3-Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral
  • 3-Night California Baja Cruise from San Diego
  • 4- Night Bahamas from Port Canaveral
  • 4- Night Bahamas from Miami
  • 4- Night Western Caribbean from Galveston
  • 4- Night San Juan to Port Canaveral
  • 5-Night Bahamas from Miami
  • 5- Night Western Caribbean
  • 5- Night Galveston to San Juan
  • 5- Night California Baja Cruise from San Diego
  • 7- Night Eastern Caribbean from Port Canaveral
  • 7- Night Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral
  • 7- Night Southern Caribbean from San Juan
  • 14- Night West Bound Panama Canal Cruise from Port Canaveral
