Folks who cruise out of New York City have far fewer ships available to them than do those sailing out of, say, Florida, so it’s always exciting when one of the lines deploys a ship to the Big Apple. After several years of not sailing out of New York City, Disney Cruise Line announced last year that the Magic would call Manhattan’s port home for several months this fall. Now comes word that the same will hold true next year, with bookings – including several first-for-Disney voyages – opening to the public on Thursday, May 26th.
A Whole New World
Among the new ports being visited by Disney will be Bar Harbor, Maine, part of a 5-night sailing departing New York City on September 27. And on October 21, the Magic will embark on the line’s longest ever voyage along the East Coast, a seven-night trip to Canada which will feature another first-for-Disney port: Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
Swing By The House Of Mouse
The Magic’s sailings out of NYC will also include a number of Bahamian cruises which will visit both the line’s private island, Castaway Cay, as well as Port Canaveral. This being a Disney cruise, it should come as no surprise that each passenger will receive transportation to Walt Disney World as well as a Park Hopper ticket allowing them to visit any (or all!) of the four parks which make up the sprawling Florida resort.
