  • Brand Overview

    Since the maiden voyage of the Disney Magic in 1998, Disney Cruise Line has become a global leader in the cruise industry, providing families with a complete Disney experience on the high seas. With three more ships joining the fleet -- the Disney Wonder, the Disney Dream and, most recently, the Disney Fantasy -- guests can now sail from ports around the world to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Hawaii, Alaska and the Mexican Riviera. Walt Disney Imagineers continuously are delivering creativity and innovation to Disney Cruise Line guests, resulting in unique water coasters, exciting entertainment offerings... and even magical portholes that bring cherished characters up close. And a favorite stop for all Bahamain and Caribbean itineraries is Castaway Cay, a private island that offers powdery sand beaches and swaying palm trees only to Disney Cruise Line guests.
