For a very limited engagement, Disney Cruise Line will add the deep southern Caribbean port of Bonaire to its early 2018 cruises from San Juan.

How limited? How does a one time visit sound. It’a all part of a new series of three seven-night southern Caribbean cruises that depart from San Juan. Bonaire, part of the Dutch ABC islands that also include Aruba and Curacao (ABC!), will welcome the Disney Wonder for the first time on the Disney Wonder’s January 28 departure from San Juan.

From San Juan, Puerto Rico in early 2018, the Disney Wonder sets sail on three seven-night cruises to the Southern Caribbean, including a new port of call -- Bonaire. Each voyage offers a unique itinerary with a combination of calls on Bonaire, Curacao, Aruba, St. Lucia, Martinique, Antigua and St. Kitts.

By early 2018 there will be three Disney ships at home in Port Canaveral; the Disney Fantasy, Disney Dream and Disney Wonder. In total, the three ships will offer three, four and seven night cruises. Each cruise, no matter the length, includes a day at Castaway Cay.

Disney Fantasy will continue the alternating seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries. Disney Dream will head to the Bahamas on three- and four-night cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay. Disney Wonder will depart from Port Canaveral from Feb. 8 through April 8 for a series of three-, four- and seven-night cruises.


Disney Magic Miami itineraries continue with four- and five-night voyages to the Bahamas, plus five-night Western Caribbean cruises. Alternating ports of call will include Nassau and Key West. The five-night cruises will include either Grand Cayman or Cozumel. 

Reservations will open on October 27, 2016. Visit DisneyCruise.com for more information.
