As reported by Cruise Industry News, the 2,400-guest Disney Wonder made its inaugural call in Costa Maya, Mexico recently where festivities took place celebrating the arrival of the 83,000-ton vessel. As standard for any vessel calling into port for the first time, a plaque ceremony took place commemorating the maiden call with officials and shipboard crew.
“Costa Maya has been a favorite destination for our guests who have sailed on the Disney Magic and the Disney Fantasy, so we are extremely pleased to bring the Disney Wonder here,” said Disney Cruise Line Captain Haugen. “Just as families reconnect and recharge onboard our ships, they can choose to relax in the sun on picture-perfect white sand beaches or seek adventure by diving one of the largest reefs in the world while in Costa Maya.”
Located on the Caribbean Sea, just north of Belize, Costa Maya was destroyed by category-five storm Hurricane Dean in 2007, the port is now rebuilt and thriving welcoming multiple cruise ships at a time. While the pier has a plethora of shops, a Margaritaville (for cruise passengers only) and a pool, you’ll probably want to venture out of the cruise port to experience real culture, snorkeling, dining and Mayan Ruins.
Disney Wonder will spend the winter in Miami offering four, five and six night Caribbean sailings.
