Disney Parks Blog fans, we want you to be the first to know…Disney Cruise Line is headed to Jamaica next year! That’s right, for the first time ever we’ll call on this beautiful tropical island during select Caribbean sailings from Texas.
The new seven-night Western Caribbean cruises stopping at Jamaica will depart from Galveston in late 2013. In addition to Falmouth, Jamaica, these voyages will call on Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico.

So what are some of the best things to do in Jamaica? Nature lovers can snorkel the turquoise waters and relax on the beautiful beaches…take a bamboo raft ride along the Martha Brae River for exceptional views of the island’s lush tropical scenery…or visit nearby Ocho Rios to see the spectacular Dunn’s River Falls.

If you’re looking to experience the history and culture of Jamaica, you can explore Falmouth, one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved Georgian towns. Whether you take a trip through time on a horse-and-buggy ride, shop for arts and crafts or indulge in a meal with Jamaica’s signature jerk recipes, you’ll most definitely enjoy your time in this quaint port town.

What’s your favorite Caribbean port of call?


  • Leaving for the Western Caribbean from Galveston – do wish Disney would have had an Eastern Caribbean trip that included Castaway Cay when we booked (feel a bit slighted in that respect). So excited though! Also, the Disney Cruise terminal looks so much nicer than the plain one in Galveston – can’t have it all, I guess.

  • When will we have the southern Caribbean included? Bermuda would also be nice.

  • I cannot wait to go to this new port!!! :) We are booked for next year! I need 2014 cruises to be posted for my whole family can book. I talked my parents and sisters into coming!!! So when 2014 Cruise are up, you can expect a large party of bookings!!! YAY! Love Disney! Love all that you do for my kids and for me and the hubby too. We love spending our vacations with you! Just got back from Disney’s Aulani! It was BEAUTIFUL!!!
    Thanks and have a Magical day!

  • How about cruising to Bermuda from Port Canaveral?

  • Please Disney we also have a number of friends that wish to book a Jan 2014 cruise, we have called DCL a number of times from Australia! Please release the dates! Very grateful thanks

  • I was on the last 2012 cruise out of NY to the Bahamas, we need you to come back to NY so I can make that my annual vacation! No one knew you were doing this on a trial run, please come back!


  • Also waiting on 2014. Every other Cruise company seems to have announced their cruises with the exception of Disney. :(

  • Any chance of returning to Northern Europe for 2014?

  • Will this be aboard the Disney Magic or the Disney Wonder?

  • Any hint on when 2014 itineraries will be announced? We have a large group that is VERY anxious to book. Thanks :-)!!

  • We cruised out of New York this past summer, It was GREAT!!!! I hope you will come backto New York.

  • Hopefully they release the 2014 dates soon!! I have been waiting to book a Jan 2014 cruise on the dream!!

  • We loved, loved the cruise along the california coast. Are you going to do it again?


  • Awesome! Still prefer to go to Castaway cay from Galveston, but I like the idea of Jamacia. Keep them coming Disney! We love this new port city!

  • Disney’s Castaway Cay

  • Will there ever be cruises starting in New York City again?
