The magic of Disney in the real world isn’t just confined to its terrestrial theme parks. They also travel the seas, on special cruise ships where Disney characters accompany the passengers on their voyages. From their terminal in Port Canaveral, Florida, Disney Cruise Line charts the usual cruise routes but with the addition of having an exclusive port of call down in the Bahamas, the private island of Castaway Cay.
Here we have a list of the cruise ships currently operating under the Disney Cruise Lines, along with pertinent information.
- Disney Magic – launched 1998 with Roy Disney’s daughter Patricia as godmother; carries 2,400 passengers and has had the most number of homeport changes in the fleet
- Disney Wonder – launched 1999 with Tinker Bell as “godmother”; also has a 2,400 passenger capacity and has transferred homeports several times, though not as much as Disney Magic
- Disney Dream – launched 2011 with actress Jennifer Hudson as godmother; bigger than its older brothers, can carry up to 4,000 passengers
- Disney Fantasy – launched 2012 with music artist Mariah Carey as godmother; of the same ship type and capabilities as Disney Dream; both of these latter ships have only ever had Port Canaveral as their home
