Disney Cruise Line announced their 2020 itineraries a few days ago!! Drumroll please…. they are going back to Hawaii!!!! And sailing out of New Orleans for the first time, ever!
Bookings started on October 4th and we can expect those specialty cruises on the Disney Wonder to go quickly! And don’t forget that DCL typically only raises prices – so the earlier you book, the cheaper the fare! If an itinerary is full, make sure to keep your eyes out since cancels tend to happen when full payment is due!!
With only 2 voyages, the Hawaiian itineraries will be one way Vancouver – Hawaii, and Hawaii – Vancouver. They are 9- and 10- night voyages with 5 days at sea! I really don’t know whether I should be more excited for Hawaii or the days at sea… they’re our favorite!! The Disney Wonder will make stops in Hilo (Big Island), Nawiliwili (Kauai), and Kahului (Maui).
In case you need inspiration, here are some amazing travel bloggers sharing their must-sees on Hawaiian islands:
