A Look at Possible 2014 Itineraries

What will the 2014 Itineraries look like for the Disney fleet? Well, I dug into the port calendars and tried to extrapolate possible itineraries. I want to stress that these port calendars are not set in stone, and could very well be assumptions made by each port for administrative purposes. Regardless, the data is available so lets take a look, and going forward lets just pretend the calendars are accurate.  DISCLAIMER: The following is based on port calendars, and makes quite a few assumptions.

Disney Fantasy

The easiest ship to figure out is the Disney Fantasy, she is alternating 7-Night Eastern Caribbean and 7-Night Western Caribbean itineraries departing from Port Canaveral on Saturdays. I do not expect this to change, and this is backed up by the Grand Cayman, and St Maarten port calendars.

7-Night Eastern Caribbean

  • 1/11/2014, 1/25/2014, 2/8/2014, 2/22/2014, 3/8/2014, 3/22/2014, 4/5/2014, 4/19/2014, 5/3/2014, 5/17/2014, 5/31/2014, 6/14/2014, 6/28/2014, 7/12/2014, 7/26/2014, 8/9/2014, 8/23/2014, 9/6/2014, 9/20/2014, 10/4/2014, 10/18/2014, 11/1/2014, 11/15/2014, 11/29/2014, 12/13/2014, 12/27/2014, 1/10/2015, 1/24/2015, 2/7/2015, 2/21/2015, 3/7/2015, 3/21/2015, 4/4/2015, 4/18/2015, 5/2/2015

7-Night Western Caribbean

  • 1/4/2014, 1/18/2014, 2/1/2014, 2/15/2014, 3/1/2014, 3/15/2014, 3/29/2014, 4/12/2014, 4/26/2014, 5/10/2014, 5/24/2014, 6/7/2014, 6/21/2014, 7/5/2014, 7/19/2014, 8/2/2014, 8/16/2014, 8/30/2014, 9/13/2014, 9/27/2014, 10/11/2014, 10/25/2014, 11/8/2014, 11/22/2014, 12/6/2014, 12/20/2014, 1/3/2015, 1/17/2015, 1/31/2015, 2/14/2015, 2/28/2015, 3/14/2015, 3/28/2015, 4/11/2015, 4/25/2015, 5/9/2015

Disney Dream

As with the Fantasy, I think it is safe to say the Disney Dream will continue to sail the 3, 4, and 5 night Bahamian cruises from Port Canaveral. I’m not going to speculate on sail dates as it could really vary depending on when or if there are 5-Night Double Dips to Castaway Cay.

However, for the sake of discussion, lets assume there will be no 5-Night sailings in 2014 on the Dream.  That would leave her sailing alternating 3 and 4-Night leaving Port Canaveral on Thursdays and Sundays.

3-Night Bahamian Cruise

  • 1/2/2014, 1/9/2014, 1/16/2014, 1/23/2014, 1/30/2014, 2/6/2014, 2/13/2014, 2/20/2014, 2/27/2014, 3/6/2014, 3/13/2014, 3/20/2014, 3/27/2014, 4/3/2014, 4/10/2014, 4/17/2014, 4/24/2014, 5/1/2014, 5/8/2014, 5/15/2014, 5/22/2014, 5/29/2014, 6/5/2014, 6/12/2014, 6/19/2014, 6/26/2014, 7/3/2014, 7/10/2014, 7/17/2014, 7/24/2014, 7/31/2014, 8/7/2014, 8/14/2014, 8/21/2014, 8/28/2014, 9/4/2014, 9/11/2014, 9/18/2014, 9/25/2014, 10/2/2014, 10/9/2014, 10/16/2014, 10/23/2014, 10/30/2014, 11/6/2014, 11/13/2014, 11/20/2014, 11/27/2014, 12/4/2014, 12/11/2014, 12/18/2014, 12/25/2014

4-Night Bahamian Cruise – Itinerary A

  • 12/29/2013, 1/5/2014, 1/12/2014, 1/19/2014, 1/26/2014, 2/2/2014, 2/9/2014, 2/16/2014, 2/23/2014, 3/2/2014, 3/9/2014, 3/16/2014, 3/23/2014, 3/30/2014, 4/6/2014, 4/13/2014, 4/20/2014, 4/27/2014, 5/4/2014, 5/11/2014, 5/18/2014, 5/25/2014, 6/1/2014, 6/8/2014, 6/15/2014, 6/22/2014, 6/29/2014, 7/6/2014, 7/13/2014, 7/20/2014, 7/27/2014, 8/3/2014, 8/10/2014, 8/17/2014, 8/24/2014, 8/31/2014, 9/7/2014, 9/14/2014, 9/21/2014, 9/28/2014, 10/5/2014, 10/12/2014, 10/19/2014, 10/26/2014, 11/2/2014, 11/9/2014, 11/16/2014, 11/23/2014, 11/30/2014, 12/7/2014, 12/14/2014, 12/21/2014, 12/28/2014

 

Disney Wonder

At the end of 2013 the Disney Wonder will be sailing 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruises from Galveston, Texas. Based on the Grand Cayman calendar, it is likely that the Wonder will continue these sailings through April 2014. The dates for the mystery ship, PAJ43-12, in Jamaica would match up with some of these sailings.

7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise (January 2014 – April 2014)

  • 1/4/2014, 1/11/2014, 1/18/2014, 1/25/2014, 2/1/2014, 2/8/2014, 2/15/2014, 2/22/2014, 3/1/2014, 3/8/2014, 3/15/2014, 3/22/2014, 3/29/2014, 4/5/2014, 4/12/2014, 4/19/2014, 4/26/2014

7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise (November 2014 – May 2015)

  • 11/15/2014, 11/22/2014, 11/29/2014, 12/6/2014, 12/13/2014, 12/20/2014, 12/27/2014, 1/3/2015, 1/10/2015, 1/17/2015, 1/24/2015, 1/31/2015, 2/7/2015, 2/14/2015, 2/21/2015, 2/28/2015, 3/7/2015, 3/14/2015, 3/21/2015, 3/28/2015, 4/4/2015, 4/11/2015, 4/18/2015, 4/25/2015, 5/2/2015, 5/9/2015, 5/16/2015

Disney Magic

At the end of 2013 the Disney Magic will be sailing from Miami, Florida on 5-Night Western Caribbean and 4-Night Bahamian Cruises. Based again on the Grand Cayman calendar, it is likely that the Magic will continue these sailings through May 2014.

5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise
Miami, FL • At Sea • Grand Cayman • Cozumel, Mexico • At Sea

  • 1/10/2014, 1/24/2014, 2/7/2014, 2/21/2014, 3/7/2014, 3/21/2014, 4/4/2014, 4/18/2014, 5/2/2014

5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise (Castaway Cay)
Miami, FL • At Sea • Cozumel, Mexico • At Sea • Castaway Cay

  • 1/15/2014, 1/29/2014, 2/12/2014, 2/26/2014, 3/12/2014, 3/26/2014, 4/9/2014, 4/23/2014, 5/7/2014

4-Night Bahamian Cruise
Miami, Fl • Castaway Cay • At Sea • Key West, FL

  • 1/20/2014, 2/3/2014, 2/17/2014, 3/3/2014, 3/17/2014, 3/31/2014, 4/14/2014, 4/28/2014, 5/12/2014

Magic & Wonder May – November 2014

The Magic and Wonder both have a similar itinerary gap between May and November. In the past, this has been the time of year when the Magic sails to Europe, and the Wonder heads to Alaska. The Magic is listed on the St Maarten calendar on 9/18/2014. I am not sure what that is all about, and may just be a typo. On the other hand it could be a pivotal clue.

In 2013 the Magic will be undergoing an extensive dry dock in Cadiz, Spain after her Mediterranean cruises. I do not think it is out of the realm of possibility that the Wonder could sail to Europe for the Mediterranean Cruises. Then, before returning to the States undergo an extensive dry dock just like the Magic in 2013.

With the Wonder in Europe the Magic would head to the West Coast and Alaska.

The New York sailings were quite popular. I would not be surprised to see Disney find a way to return at some point.

Let us know what you think, or have heard.

    Hi there! That’s a lot of work coming from dispersed data all over the ports… I commend you for it! Do you have any info/idea about the Panama Canal cruises? Thanks!

    Great work. I was hoping the Fantasy would be doing an Eastern Caribbean for Thanksgiving 2014. It seems strange that they would do a Western for both 2013 and 2014 over Thanksgiving. Oh well. I am waiting anxiously for the 2014 itineraries.
