Disney Cruise Line Returns to New Orleans in 2022!

For all of the New Orleans friends and family out there, this news is for you! Cupcake Castles Travel Company is proud to call New Orleans home, and we're extra excited to share that the Disney Wonder will resume sailings on February 2, 2022. The cruises from NOLA offer a variety of 4 to 6-night sailings to Mexico.

Only aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship can you watch a spectacular Disney show in the Walt Disney Theatre, an innovative dining concept where you rotate between three differently themed restaurants each evening with your own personal dining room serving team, the first water coaster created ever, and plenty more. Like the parks, Disney doesn't cut corners when it comes to the experience about one of their ships: the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Magic, and their newest: the Disney Wish! All sailings out of New Orleans are aboard the Disney Wonder, except for one sailing with a modified itinerary that will sail aboard the Disney Dream.

In order to sail on a Disney Cruise Line ship, please note the below vaccination requirements:

"In order to sail, Guests 12 years of age and older must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Due to recently updated technical guidance from the CDC, Guests 11 years of age and younger are not required to be vaccinated, but must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken between 3 days and 24 hours prior to the date you set sail. The test should be a rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted. Additionally, beginning September 13, 2021, all Guests, regardless of age and vaccination status, are also required to take a COVID-19 test administered by Inspire Diagnostics at the terminal before boarding."

For the rest of 2021 and into 2022, you can set sail aboard a Disney cruise ship and save up to 30% on select sailings, while supplies last! Check out the dates and sailings below, and reach out to your Magical Memory Maker if you are interested in booking a vacation your family will remember for years to come.
