Disney Cruise Line recently added a selection of port adventures for guests to choose when sailing to Martinique, West Indies aboard the Disney Wonder in early 2016. The Disney Wonder is scheduled to make four visits to Martinique during the 7-Night Southern Caribbean Cruises from San Juan. The Disney Magic sailed a similar itinerary in 2014, but included St. Lucia instead of Martinique.
