Last week, TCM announced the 2016 TCM Classic Cruise will be held aboard the Disney Fantasy from November 12 – 19, 2016. The TCM Classic Cruise will embark from Port Canaveral, with exotic new ports of call, for the TCM cruise, including San Juan, St. Maarten and returning once again to Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
TCM chartered the Disney Fantasy for this event, therefore Disney Cruise Line is not in charge of booking. As of now, TCM is inviting anyone interested in this cruise to register for the pre-sale to get priority over the general public. Bookings will open to the general public on March 11, 2016. Registering for the pre-sale does not obligate you to any payment, it simply gives you the chance to book before the general public. For details on how to pre-register please visit TCM’s official website for the 2016 TCM Classic Cruise at http://www.tcmcruise.com. Additionally, you can find pricing information here.
The 2016 TCM Classic Cruise promises to bring TCM hosts, special guests and fellow movie lovers together to watch films and speak with the actors and talent who made them. Guests will hear behind the scenes stories and enjoy special presentations with fellow movie fans. There will be multiple TCM-themed events and activities throughout the each day of the cruise. TCM call this a classic movie paradise at sea. According to the information provided from TCM, special guests will be announced at a later date.
As previously mentioned, the 2016 TCM Classic Cruise will sail from Port Canaveral with stops in San Juan, St. Maarten and Castaway Cay. The most populous city in Puerto Rico, San Juan offers a rich history as well as incredible natural attractions. In St. Maarten, visitors have a chance to experience two rich cultures (France and the Netherlands) as well as the island’s host of idyllic recreational and relaxation opportunities. Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island paradise, offering beautiful beaches and a wide array of tropical leisure activities.
The 2016 TCM Classic Cruise itinerary is the same 7-Night Eastern Caribbean – Itinerary C the Disney Fantasy sailed in 2014 and 2015. While things have changed and the TCM Classic Cruises have their own unique events, there are copies of the Personal Navigators for this itinerary available for review.
TCM’s announcement confirms our initial speculation and provides closure on why the November 12th Disney Fantasy sailing was not available to book.
