Halloween and Merrytime Cruises Await in 2024

Halloween and Merrytime Cruises

In 2024, the magic of the holidays will once again be found on Disney Cruise Line. Both Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime Cruises will be offered for Guests to experience.  There will also be rare itineraries to Hawaii and the South Pacific and more opportunities to visit Disney’s newest island destination called Lighthouse Point.

Halloween on the High Seas

Halloween on the High Seas returns to Disney Cruise Line in mid-September through October 2024. If you haven’t experienced the spooktacular fun, you should! Select cruises in the fall bring Halloween to Guests with added entertainment, the opportunity to dress up in costume, trick or treat, and more. Guests can even dance the night away at a spooky celebration on the upper decks; enjoy themed food and beverages; and experience fun decor and the Pumpkin Tree.

From Port Canaveral, Florida, the Disney Wish will sail three- and four-night Bahamian voyages. The Disney Fantasy will offer these special themed cruises. Four- and six-night sailings on board the Disney Fantasy will take families to The Bahamas, while seven-night escapes will take Guests to fan-favorite destinations throughout The Bahamas and Caribbean. The Disney Magic will depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on three to five nights sailings to tropical destinations in The Bahamas and Caribbean.

Select sailings on both the Disney Magic and the Disney Fantasy will include a chance to visit Disney Cruise Line’s newest destination in The Bahamas. Located on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point, this beach retreat will be a unique celebration of Bahamian culture.

Very Merrytime Cruises

From mid-November through December 2024, the Disney Cruise Line fleet will be decked out for Very Merrytime Cruises. There will be holiday décor; characters in their festive attire; themed holiday activities; and holiday celebrations on deck.

Short holiday getaways will be offered from both Port Canaveral and Fort Lauderdale. There will be a selection of three- and four-night Bahamian Very Merrytime voyages on the Disney Wish and four- and five-night cruises to The Bahamas and Caribbean aboard the Disney Dream.

The Disney Fantasy will offer four-night Very Merrytime sailings to The Bahamas, along with longer six- and seven-night itineraries in November and December. Select voyages on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy will include a day at Lighthouse Point.

Cruises from Galveston aboard the Disney Magic will range in length from four to six nights. These cruises will visit tropical ports of call throughout the Caribbean.

Bucket List Cruises

In addition to the festive themed sailings, Disney Cruise Line guests can experience bucket-list itineraries in late 2024. The Disney Wonder will sail from Vancouver, Canada, to Honolulu, Hawaii, in late September. The ship will stop on the islands of Kauai, Maui and Hawaii before arriving in Oahu. From Hawaii, the Disney Wonder will embark on a transpacific voyage to Sydney, Australia. This cruise will take Guests through the South Pacific to places like Fiji, American Samoa and New Caledonia. Disney Cruise Line will then set sail on its second season of vacations from Australia and New Zealand.


Bookings open to the public June 26, 2023.
