Disney Tweaks 2010 Wonder Itineraries

October 6, 2008
It may not be heading to Africa or St. Petersburg like fleetmate Disney Magic, but Disney Wonder will be debuting its own new itineraries in 2010, too.

Disney Cruise Line announced today that beginning on May 30, 2010, Disney Wonder will shift its itinerary schedule from the three-night Bahamas cruise its sails now to a repeating series of four- and five-night cruises.

The new four-night Bahamas cruise will depart every other Friday and feature stops in Nassau and Castaway Cay, Disney's private island.

The first of two five-night options leaves every other Sunday has as stop in Nassau sandwiched by two separate days in Castaway Cay.

The second five-night option leaves every other Tuesday and visits Key West, Nassau and Castaway Cay.

The three cruises will operate on a 4, 5, 5 schedule. All Disney Wonder cruises will continue to sail out of Orlando's Port Canaveral.

Why the change? Cruise line spokespersons said the decision to switch from three-night itineraries to four- and five-nighters was related to Magic's move from the Eastern Caribbean, where it currently sails weeklong Eastern Caribbean cruises, to Europe. Wonder will simply sail a slightly longer cruise than before to make up for the lack of the seven-day cruise option on this side of the pond.
