According to the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, the Disney Wonder is scheduled to return to Hawaii in 2015. Based on the currently port schedule which was last updated this past week, the Disney Wonder will call on Honolulu on September 17, 2015.
In 2012, the Disney Wonder sailed on a 15-Night and 14-Night cruise to Hawaii with stops in Hilo, Kahului, Honolulu, Nawiliwili and Ensenada. Honolulu was day eight on both itineraries which embarked from Los Angeles.
The timing of the call is the most interesting aspect with it being almost a full month earlier than the 2012 14-Night Hawaiian sailing which embarked on October 14th.
This potentially indicates that there will not be a series of the September 7-night California Coast Cruises which were Pixar themed in 2012. The other wild card will be wether Disney sticks with San Diego, or return to Los Angeles in 2015.
Pending the accuracy of the port calendar, the west coast positioning of the Disney Wonder it is easy to concluded she will also sail Alaska in 2015.
UPDATE: Disney Wonder Removed from Port Calendar
During the day on Monday January 27, 2014, the Department of Transportation replaced the previous port schedule with one that no longer shows the Disney Wonder. This appears to indicate one of two things…. Either Disney notified the Hawaii DOT that they will no longer be sailing to Honolulu, or DCL requested to have the Disney Wonder removed from the schedule until the remaining 2015 itineraries are announced.
However, the properties of the PDF all but confirm Monday’s update was an attempt to hide the Disney Wonder’s scheduled call.
This is not the first time a Disney ship has been removed from a port calendar following its discovery. This past fall the Disney Magic was spotted in Rome and has sense disappeared.
