Disney Dream Moving to South Florida Ahead of the Disney Wish’s Arrival

Today is the end of an era for the Disney Dream as she departs Port Canaveral for the last time – at least for the foreseeable future, to begin a new chapter in South Florida at PortMiami. For the first time, Disney Cruise Line will have two Florida ports offering summer cruise departures with the Dream moving to Miami.

Later today, the Disney Dream will reposition with just crew to Miami and will resume passenger sailings on Tuesday, June 7th.

The Disney Dream will sailing a mix of 3-, 4- and 5-night Bahamian cruises, 5-, and 7-night Western Caribbean cruises as well as one 7-night Eastern Caribbean through early May 2023 before a transatlantic cruise to embark on her first European season.

The move makes way for the arrival of the Disney Wish which is slated to arrive at Port Canaveral on June 20th. The Disney Dream had been Disney Cruise Line’s primary ship at Port Canaveral with 2 sailings each week alternating between 3- and 4-night Bahamian cruises since her debut in January 2011.

    This is sad.Only because we were on the inaugural season of the Dream, plus 5 more. We have wonderful memories of the Dream going out of Port Canaveral. I understand the Fantasy and the Wish embarks at Port Canaveral It will be different and not sure of the Port of Miami. And we live in Miami! Too much traffic. The good thing is the added 5 night cruises. And we can easily, if there is no traffic, visit the Dream often.

    We will be on it’s last double dip Castaway Cay cruise in April 2023. She was our first cruise in 2016 to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary of my parents. Actually excited to cruise out of a new port.
