Due to the overwhelming guest feedback, Disney Cruise Line has modified select Galveston sailings from a Western Caribbean to a Bahamian itinerary on the [Disney_Magic] which will include stops at Key West, Port Canaveral, and Castaway Cay!
The new itineraries will be an 8-Night Bahamian Cruise sailing on 1/18/2013, 2/15/2013, 3/1/2013, 3/29/2013, 4/26/2013, and 5/10/2013. These sailings also include a one-day Park Hopper ticket to Walt Disney World for the day in Port Canaveral.
|Day 2||Day at Sea|
|Day 3||Day at Sea|
|Day 4||Castaway Cay|
|Day 5||Port Canaveral|
|Day 6||Day at Sea|
|Day 7||Key West|
|Day 8||Day at Sea|
To provide Guest with a shorter option, select 8-night voyages have been modified into two 4-Night voyages sailing to Cozumel, Mexico. These new 4-Night Western Caribbean voyages will sail on
1/4/2013, 1/8/2013, 2/1/2013, 2/5/2013, 3/15/2013, 3/19/2013, 4/12/2013, and 4/16/2013.

These dates are not yet available on the Disney Cruise Line site, nor are the new itineraries. The email sent to guests scheduled on the affected dates indicated that they have until 8/24/2012 to contact Disney Cruise Line to learn about the available options and to modify their booking. Based on this, it appears that Disney is holding back the public release of the sailing to make sure all previously booked guests have first chance at these new itineraries.
When I called the main booking number this morning to inquire about these changes I was offered the option to check availability even though I was not previously book on one of the affected Galveston sailings. If you are interested in these I suggest calling while they are still unadvertised. Booking for the general public will begin September 5, 2012.
