“We are excited to add even more variety to our offering of itineraries from the Port of Galveston,” said Disney Cruise Line President Karl Holz. “The addition of shorter getaway cruises and voyages that call on our most popular port of call, Disney’s Castaway Cay, rounds out an impressive array of itinerary options from Galveston.”

Disney Magic’s 4 night cruise will depart Galveston and offer a call in Cozumel, Mexico. A perfect itinerary for a quick getaway. The 6 night cruise will offer ports of call in Grand Cayman and Cozumel. The 8 night  western cruise will offer calls in Key West, Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, and Cozumel. The 8 night Bahamas cruise will include a day at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay; and a stop at Port Canaveral, Fla., giving guests an opportunity to visit the nearby Walt Disney World Resort.  As part of this itinerary, each guest will receive a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and roundtrip transportation between their Disney ship and the resort. This 8 night Bahamas itinerary is a first ever for Disney and is sure to offer an amazing Disney experience for all of those west coast Disney fans.
