Today, Disney Cruise Line emailed guests booked on the Disney Fantasy’s January 29, 2022 Star Wars Day at Sea sailing with an itinerary change due to the continued closure of cruise port in Grand Cayman, although no specific mention of Falmouth. The email reaffirms the statement from the last round of itinerary changes for sailings with scheduled stops at Grand Cayman – officials in the Cayman Islands have decided to keep the port closed to cruise ships given the status of Grand Cayman, and the continued uncertainty regarding requirements and protocols for visiting other destinations, Disney Cruise Line made the decision to modify this itinerary.
The Disney Fantasy’s revised itinerary, a 7-Night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral will now included stops in Nassau and Costa Maya instead of Falmouth and Grand Cayman. The revised itinerary is as follows:
- Saturday January 29, 2022 – Port Canaveral, Florida
- Sunday January 30, 2022 – Nassau, Bahamas
- Monday January 31, 2022 – Castaway Cay
- Tuesday February 1, 2022 – At Sea
- Wednesday February 2, 2022 – Cozumel, Mexico
- Thursday February 3, 2022 – Costa Maya, Mexico
- Friday February 4, 2022 – At Sea
Saturday February 5, 2022 – Port Canaveral, Florida (Debarkation)
Acting Minister for Tourism Hon. Dwayne Seymour recently stated that “we look forward to welcoming cruise tourism business in 2022 when it is safer to do so.”
There still are a number of scheduled call to Grand Cayman in February. The Disney Wonder is the next ship with a scheduled stop in Grand Cayman. The February 2nd 6-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from New Orleans sailing remains unaltered with an advertised call in the Cayman Islands on February 5th as of this publication over on Disney Cruise Line’s website.
I’ve been to Nassau — how disappointing – NASTY!!
Yes!! Very disappointing!!!!
Costa Maya is high on my list and not a frequent stop, so that is a nice change. But Nassau is a disappointment.
Nassau is an extra sea day. Less on board too.
We just got off the ship after the January 22 sailing. Our eastern Caribbean itinerary was modified to a western Caribbean one. A great change to me because it was amazing. I generally avoid the western itineraries as we’ve really liked the eastern ones in the past, but now I will preferentially choose any itinerary that stops at Costa Maya. The port is wonderful, the excursion we took to see the pyramids was fabulous, and it seems to be a port in which the cruise tourism industry truly makes a positive difference as opposed to some of the other larger, busy airports where we don’t even go ashore (Nassau).
