The Disney Magic’s 5-night Bahamian Cruise scheduled for October 21, 2014 has been chartered, and as a result is no longer available to book. No additional details are available at this time as to whom may have chartered the Magic. This sailing was to be the first cruise for the Disney Magic from Port Canaveral following her repositioning from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The October 21st sailing has already been removed from Disney Cruise Line’s online booking inventory.

All guest reservations will automatically be transferred on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 (if not moved prior) to the December 3, 2014 4-Night Bahamian Cruise on the Disney Wonder with stops at Castaway Cay, Nassau and Key West as a placeholder along with a 10% discount and $100 OBC.
This discount and OBC will stay on the reservation if it is subsequently modified to another sailing. One displaced guest informed us that Disney is compensating guests by allowing them to keep any previous discounts and onboard benefits from the canceled sailing as well as 10% off the rescheduled sailing with additional onboard credit.
This cancelation is another in the recent string of chartered sailings. The Disney Magic was chartered by Turner Classic Movies for their third TCM Classic Cruise this December, and an August 2014 sailing of the Disney Dream was canceled for a the 2014 Disney Vacation Club Members sailing.
UPDATE: It was announced during the 2013 TCM Cruise that the 2014 cruise would again sail on the Disney Magic on October 21st. A guest commented on the cruise promoter’s website with the following details.
2014 date is Oct. 21 – 26. Disney Magic; destination TBA. This was announced by Robert Osborne on the Dec., 2013 cruise.
