Today, Disney Cruise Line emailed guests booked on the Disney Magic’s January 22, 2022 Marvel Day at Sea sailing with an itinerary change due to the continued closure of cruise port in Grand Cayman. 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 through the month of January 2022.
The Disney Magic’s revised itinerary, a 5-Night Bahamian Cruise from Miami with 2 Stops at Disney Castaway Cay offers guests a second stop at Castaway Cay and adds a day in Nassau. The revised itinerary is as follows:
- Saturday January 22, 2022 – Miami, Florida
- Sunday January 23, 2022 – At Sea
- Monday January 24, 2022 – Castaway Cay (Previously Grand Cayman)
- Tuesday January 25, 2022 – Nassau, Bahamas (Previously at Sea)
- Wednesday January 26, 2022 – Castaway Cay
Thursday January 27, 2022 – Miami, 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 are a number of scheduled call to Grand Cayman in February. The Disney Fantasy is the next ship with a scheduled stop in Grand Cayman. The January 29th 7-night Western Caribbean sailing remains unaltered with an advertised call in the Cayman Islands on February 1st as of this publication over on Disney Cruise Line’s website.
The islands have to do what they feel is necessary for their protection, makes sense. This may not be so bad, they just loose a day at sea. While everyone likes the ports of course and the adventures or shopping you see. As long as we are on board any of the DCL ships. My wife and I would be happy if the ship sailed around in circles, just let us be aboard, at the pool, watching a movie, dining and a few cocktails.
I agree Brett. I finally got back on the Magic this past November and is was magical.
