This fall, Disney Cruise Line will begin sailing from Galveston, Texas for the first time ever. While the first Galveston cruise will not depart until September 22, Disney has already announced some brand-new itineraries departing from Galveston in early 2013. The new itineraries will add four and eight-night cruises aboard the Disney Magic to the Caribbean and Bahamas, including Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
“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.”
Here are some of the new itineraries that cruisers can look forward to in 2013:
