Disney Cruise Line on Thursday revealed that it will return to Hawaii in 2022 with 10-night Hawaiian Island sailings.
Disney will sail to the Aloha State aboard Disney Wonder with two special 10-night sailings, one from Honolulu from Vancouver on April 26 and then a return journey back to Vancouver on May 6. Aside from Honolulu, the sailings will give guests the opportunity to explore Waikiki on Oahu, the summit of Haleakala Crater on Maui, and the waterfalls in Kauai.
Along with Hawaii, Disney also announced updated schedules for its other ships and ports of call, including news on where its fleet will homeport.
Disney Fantasy will start off 2022 from Port Canaveral, sailing a six-night Western Caribbean cruise followed by a slate of seven-night cruises to both the Western and Eastern Caribbean.
Disney Dream will also homeport in Port Canaveral, sailing three and four-night Bahamian cruises that include stops at Disney’s Castaway Cay. Dream will sail one special sailing that includes two stops at Castaway.
Disney Magic will homeport in Miami, sailing four and five-night Western Caribbean sailings including one special three-night sailing to Castaway Cay and Key West.
Disney Wonder will start the year in Galveston, Texas, sailing four-night Western Caribbean cruises. It will then move to New Orleans where it will sail four and six-night sailings. Wonder will then move to San Diego for a season, in March and April, of sailings to Baja, Mexico including some that stop in Cabo San Lucas, Catalina Island, and more.
Disney Wish, the upcoming ship that was set to debut in early 2022, will now come into service in the summer due to COVID-19 delays at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Germany.
All of the new 2022 sailings will open to the public on Oct. 22 with Disney Castaway Club Members, Adventures by Disney Insiders, and DVD members getting access in the days before.
Disney, in its note on Thursday, also said that 2022 will feature a change in stateroom categories across its fleet. While not all categories will change, Disney said to expect some categories to be eliminated and others to be modified in order to make things “more intuitive” for its guests.
