Disney Cruise Line raises the bar in 2012

It has been an amazing year for Disney Cruise Line and one that will be hard to beat in 2013, which is thanks to many firsts for Disney cruises. The year started with Disney Fantasy being the first Disney cruise ship to be christened in NYC (March 1), and in fact is the first Disney ship to sail into the New York harbor (February 28).

Disney’s fantastic cruise year only started with the Fantasy cruise ship setting some new ground, and on May 25 the Disney Magic started sailing from NYC. The itineraries included cruises to the Bahamas for 8 nights, a 2 night cruise that didn’t go to any port, and also the first time Disney’s Fantasy went to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Canada for a 5 night cruise.

The Disney Wonder visited Hawaii in May for a 14-night cruise, and the feature of this cruise had been Honolulu and a visit to Disney’s latest resort (Aulani). Since May the Disney Wonder has been visiting numerous ports along the Pacific Coast, but will make a return to Hawaii this October.

    Both are great ships in two different sizes, but I think the Fantasy has more amenities.  I would love to know what Disney will do with the Magic in her 2013 refit.  My gang and I will be on the Dream this May.  Can’t wait!

    Have not sailed on the Fantasy or Wonder, but planning to sail on the Fantasy in 2015. But first our big vacation in Disney World for 2014. Have sailed on the Disney Dream and had a wonderful time and I’m sure the Fantasy will be just a great if not better.
