The wait is finally over, Disney Cruise Line announced a new batch of itineraries this morning. The Summer 2017 Disney Cruise itineraries feature the Disney Wonder returning to Alaska and the Disney Magic heading back to Europe with the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy continuing their Bahamian and Caribbean cruises.
Today’s release extended the available sail dates into late-August/September 2017 for the Magic & Wonder and through September 2017 for the Dream & Fantasy. These new sail dates will allow guest to plan vacations more than one year out, as well as take advantage of opening day pricing for some of of the more unique itineraries.
Although the dates were announced today, booking will not being until April 13th. On Wednesday, Platinum & Gold Castaway Club members will be able to call in or have their travel agents book sailings. On Thursday, April 14th Silver Castaway Club members as well as first time cruisers will be able to book. I said this before, but it is worth repeating… Please do not try calling today to book; this will just clog up the phone lines and bog down the reservation cast members. There may be people attempting to book an available cruise vacation today.
I really need to thank Tracy from TravelOnADream.com for helping me get the itineraries cleared up.
