Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Evily Giannopoulos Peros:

If you have been dreaming about stepping foot aboard the Disney Wish ever since we unveiled Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship last month, your wish can now come true! Starting today, your family can book the family vacation of a lifetime and be part of Disney Cruise Line history during the Disney Wish’s inaugural season next summer.

On June 9, 2022, the Disney Wish will set sail from Port Canaveral for a special five-night voyage, featuring two days at sea and stops in Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island paradise, Castaway Cay. From there, the ship will embark on three- and four-night itineraries to these stunning tropical destinations.

In Nassau, your family will enjoy breathtaking beaches and fun activities like swimming, snorkeling, shopping and more. At Castaway Cay, you’ll discover a pristine island brimming with special Disney touches that is completely outfitted for family fun and relaxation. Reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, this island oasis is home to clear turquoise waters, powdery white sand beaches and the signature lush landscapes of the Bahamas.

While the ports of call are sure to be a big draw, just wait until you see the ship! In case you missed any of the details about all the enchantment that awaits on board, check out the video below for a quick look at the Disney Wish.

 

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to live out my fairytale dreams in the Grand Hall, embark on a “port misadventure” aboard the AquaMouse, indulge in a date night at Palo Steakhouse and take my daughter to the “Toy Story” Splash Zone for the first time. And, as a huge Marvel fan, I am especially excited about Worlds of Marvel … More details about that first-of-its-kind cinematic dining adventure are on the horizon!
