Disney Cruise Line Adds New Galveston Itineraries

It is my opinion that Disney listens to their guests more than any other company of which I am familiar. As proof of this fact, Disney Cruise Line has responded to guest feedback by announcing new 2013 itineraries from Galveston, Texas. Select 8-night Western Caribbean cruises from Galveston have now been changed to a Bahamas itinerary. The six-night and seven-night cruises will remain as originally planned, but select eight-night cruises are being switched to include stops in Key West, Castaway Cay (photo shown above) and Port Canaveral, which will include transportation and one-day park hopper passes for the Walt Disney World Resort.

In order to provide guests with some shorter cruise options as well, some of the 8-night cruises have been modified into two 4-night voyages sailing to Cozumel.

For guests who were booked on the original eight-night sailings, Disney has already begun contacting each guest to provide them with the best options for their travel dates and destination wishes. Guests have until August 24, 2012 to make their changes. If the guests move their booking to a different sail date, the original booking date is used to determine the price of the new cruise.

These itinerary changes only affect cruises sailing from the Port of Galveston on the dates shown below. The itineraries are shown as well.

    Key West was always one of my favorite places to go. This may sway my husband to go to Galveston to get on the ship.
