Sun, sand and surf. Need I say more? Our cruises from Florida sail to the Bahamas and Caribbean, including a stop at our pristine private island, Castaway Cay. Imagine spending a winter day swimming in crystal clear waters or soaking up the sun on a white-sand beach. Now that sure does beat shoveling snow, don’t you agree?

Options from Miami and Port Canaveral. From now through early May, we have ships cruising from both South and Central Florida. Choose the homeport most convenient for your family, and be sure to add a few days before or after your cruise to enjoy the destination. In Miami, head to the famous South Beach for shopping and dining and to experience the local culture and flavors of this vibrant city. If you’re sailing from Port Canaveral, make it a land and sea vacation with a stay at Walt Disney World Resort, just an hour away.

Special rates for Florida Residents. One of the things I love about living in the Sunshine State are the mild winters, but even Floridians need a winter getaway! For a limited time, Florida residents can enjoy special rates on select early 2020 sailings. Check out the offer here

Epic adventures. On select cruises in early 2020, you can enjoy unique character encounters, live shows and action-packed entertainment during Marvel Day at Sea on the Disney Magic and Star Wars Day at Sea on the Disney Fantasy. Setting sail on cruises to the Caribbean and Bahamas, these sailings combine the splendor of a Disney Cruise Line vacation with an epic day at sea.
