We just embarked on our inaugural season sailing from New Orleans! This also marks the very first time that Disney Cruise Line has had a homeport in Louisiana. On the Disney Wonder’s first departure from the Crescent City, the ship received a celebratory bon voyage from Princess Tiana, Prince Naveen and members of the traditional New Orleans Treme Brass Band.
This cruise that has just commenced kicks off a limited-engagement season sailing from New Orleans in 2020. Best of all, we will be returning to New Orleans again in early 2021. These voyages visit the Bahamas, Caribbean and include stops at Disney’s private island paradise, Castaway Cay.
Those of you from the area, get ready to experience the magic of having a Disney ship in your own backyard. And if you’re joining us from farther away, you can savor the excitement and flair of the Big Easy both onboard and ashore.
In New Orleans, you’ll find magic around every corner as you recognize the iconic sights and sounds that inspired the Disney animated film “The Princess and the Frog.”
Onboard the Disney Wonder, we are “gonna take you there!” You’ll be treated to a celebration of New Orleans dining and entertainment at Tiana’s Place restaurant with a menu that draws inspiration from the flavors and ingredients of the Louisiana bayou.
At the brand new French Quarter Lounge you’re transported deeper into the story to enjoy live jazz music, sip a New Orleans-themed specialty drink and dance the night away. Throughout the days, family activities, trivia, workshops, crafts and music bring the bayou spirit of family gatherings and fun to life.
Please join us in welcoming Disney Cruise Line to the Big Easy!
