We finally have some evidence of the Disney Magic sailing to Europe in 2015 based on a few scheduled arrivals that were spotted by one of our readers on the Civitavecchia port calendar. The Magic is listed on Civitavecchia’s port calendar 4 times between August 13 and September 1, 2015.

Following the recent itinerary changes and the delay in the Panama Canal expansion project, the only clear option… Continue reading

According to an article on NOLA.com by Richard Thompson, officials from the Port of New Orleans recently met with executives from Disney Cruise Line in an attempt to sell New Orleans as a new home port with the aid of a new terminal that is currently in development. Gary LaGrange, president and CEO of… Continue reading
With the impending probable release of the rest of the 2014 itineraries, I wanted to review all of the available information to try to fill in all of the pieces to the puzzle and try to answer the question of “Where will DCL be going?” By plotting out the data onto calendars, things began to fall into place. Below you will find a compilation of my findings. On the calendars, the bolded cities are the ones that currently appear on the port calendars, and I have filled in the rest.
