To run a successful excursion / tour business, it's very important to make sure that you are staying on top of new cruises that may be coming to the ports that you service. It’d be unfortunate, for example, if you kept your current staffing levels not knowing that a Disney cruise ship was heading your way.
With new cruises comes new and excited cruisers ready to take part in YOUR excursions and adventures. Make sure to plan accordingly for these crowds, so as to not lose out on customers. Disney recently announced their ports and itineraries for early 2017. Read on to discover if a Disney cruise is heading your way:
At this port you’ll find three Disney ships with a full menu of options, all including a day at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island paradise reserved exclusively for Disney cruise line guests. The Disney Fantasy continues to sail seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean voyages, while the Disney Dream embarks on three- and four-night cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay.
Kicking off 2017, the Disney Magic continues sailing from Miami with three-, four- and five-night voyages to the Bahamas, plus select Western Caribbean cruises. Those on board any of these voyages can expect a trip to Castaway Cay, and other Bahamian ports of call including Nassau and Key West, while a stop in Grand Cayman or Cozumel headlines the Western Caribbean itineraries.
San Juan and Galveston
For a limited time only, the Disney Magic sets sail with stops at Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Antigua and St. Kitts. You can also set sail on four seven-night cruises to the Southern Caribbean.
From Galveston, the Disney Wonder hosts two seven-night Bahamian voyages to Key West, Castaway Cay and Nassau. Once there, the ship will embark on a six-night journey to San Juan with stops in Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth, Jamaica. Lastly, a three-night cruise aboard the Disney Wonder will transport guests from San Juan to Port Canaveral, just an hour away from Walt Disney World Resort—the perfect stop for families!
