Sailing to New Horizons Disney Cruise Line

Karl Holz, President of Disney Cruise Line and New Vacation Operations, revealed the Disney Cruise Line’s exciting new ports of call for 2011 at the Storytellers theater during the morning session at the D23 Expo in Anaheim.

 The crowd cheered when Holz took the stage.  Holz, a very gregarious and likeable speaker outlined the Disney Cruise Line’s robust sailing schedule.  Of special note, and an ice sculpture to match, was the unveiling of the Disney Wonder’s 2011 Alaska itinerary.  The Wonder will sail roundtrip from Vancouver starting on May 3, 2011. The four month run will end on  August 30th, 2011.

Savvy cruisers will want to make reservations early despite the fact that the cruise does not sail until 2011.  With a smaller ship like the Wonder, there are less cabins available than larger ships calling on ports in Alaska.  Combine the smaller inventory of cabins with a short Alaska cruise season and consumers will see higher cruise fares.  Waiting for a last minute deal might not pay off.

Avid cruisers know that Disney Cruise Line has an aggressive onboard sales kiosk.  Happy passengers are more than willing to make deposits on future cruises while onboard.  I predict that the Alaska cruise itineraries will be very popular and that they will sell out. 

Our luxury cruise clients will want to start making plans for their multi-generational cruises now to ensure availability and to make reservations for the suites and larger cabins.
