Disney Cruise Line Adds Port Adventures for Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Disney Cruise Line recently added port adventures for guests to choose when sailing to Tortola, British Virgin Islands aboard the Disney Fantasy at the end of this year as well as the Magic & Wonder in 2016. The Disney signed a berthing agreement with Tortola in January 2014 and announced itineraries featuring the British Virgin Islands port in October 2014. In December 2014, it was announced that the Disney Fantasy’s December 19, 2015 sailing would be modified and visit Tortola instead of St Maarten.

Tortola is not a new port of call for Disney Cruise Line. The Disney Magic visited Tortola in the past and the Disney Wonder was previously scheduled to visit during a 10-night holiday cruise before the sailing was split into two 5-night sailings. As of today, there are 38 future calls scheduled to Tortola with more likely in the future based on the signed berthing agreement.DCL Port Adventures Tortola BVI
