Read This Before You Sail on A Disney Cruise

Disney cruise staterooms are larger than the average industry standard so you will find plenty of room to make yourself at home. One of the most popular staterooms is the Deluxe Family Stateroom with Verandah which sleeps up to 5 guests so is a great choice for a family.

If you sail on a Disney Mexican Riviera Cruise you will have a great stateroom no matter which category that you pick.

There is so much to do on board the Disney Wonder. We have spent months on board and we really think she is the Best Disney Cruise Ship.

So What Disney cruises to Mexico are available for 2018 and 2019?

2 Night Disney Cruise San Diego

2 Night Disney Cruise San Diego 2019

disneycruisesandiego2018

We have to say that we really think that a 2 night Disney cruise is too short. Really only consider it if you just want to see if you like a cruise, or if you absolutely can’t take a longer vacation.

If you are looking for dates for a Disney Cruise from San Diego in 2018 the Disney Wonder sails on 4/27, 5/4, 5/11, 9/28 and 10/5 on a 2 night cruise.

If you want to get a taste of everything which a Disney cruise has to offer you can sail on a 2 night Disney cruise out of San Diego on 4/12/2019, 4/19/2019 and 10/14/19 and 10/18/19.

You will sail out of San Diego on a Friday and return on a Sunday. There is one port stop on Saturday in Ensenada Mexico.

These dates are block out dates for the on board booking offer. What does this mean? if you already have a place holder booking held for a future Disney cruise, you cannot use it for these 2 night San Diego cruises. These cruises are usually very popular and sell out quickly.

Sailing into Cabo San Lucas on a cruise is a very special experience. The bay is just breathtakingly beautiful. Once a small fishing village, now experiencing a tourist boom (mainly from the increasing number of cruise ships arriving in port) Cabo still retains it’s considerable beauty and charm.

Located on the Southern Tip of the Baja Peninsula Cabo offers a huge choice of things to do – ranging from sport fishing to snorkeling, kayaking to relaxing on one of the white sandy beaches.

Mazatlan

The port of Mazatlan with it’s 14 miles of sandy beaches, Golden Zone Shopping and Old Town are known as The Pearl of the Pacific. Mazatlan is a busy commercial port and this is where the cruise ships dock – you will be taken on a free tram ride away from the port and towards the town. Here you can either take a taxi to the interesting and authentic Old Town or pick up an excursion bus.

Make sure you stop by and watch the Cliff Divers They are always happy to dive into the waters below – for a fee of course!

Other excursions include sport fishing, brewery tours, visits to Old Town or just realxing on one of the many beautiful beaches.

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is perhaps my favorite Mexican Riviera Port. The charming donw town area is well worth a visit. Excursions include swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, whale watching, sailing,zip lining, and horseback riding.

What is So Special About A Disney Cruise?

A Disney cruise usually costs just a little more than other cruise lines with similar itineraries so is it really worth paying the extra? Most guests would agree that it is. There is something for everyone on a Disney cruise.

Of course when most people think of Disney cruises they imagine that it is aimed a families with young children. They would be right as Disney has one of the very best kids programs at sea and is designed to make it very easy for families to enjoy their time on the ship.

But Disney cruise line also thinks of the adults. It really goes out of it’s way to provide for the grown ups too. They adult only areas are really well designed and are (unlike some other cruise lines) kept child free.

The Disney Wonder Staterooms are large than average and are particularly well designed.

The restaurants are innovative and most guests enjoy the fact that you ‘rotate’ around 3 different restaurants but keep your wait staff each day so they are familiar with your party and their dining requests. Whether you want a gluten free bread roll or a chilled glass of water with lemon waiting at your table every evening your server will have it there for you.

The entertainment on a Disney cruise is of course of very high quality. Having sailed on many cruise lines I can say that no other cruise line really comes close to being as good as Disney.

And of course you just have that Disney cruise experience. That little bit of Pixie Dust which once you have experienced it just keeps calling you back to find that magical vacation once again.
