Disney Cruise Line brings the mouse’s unique approach to entertainment in the Caribbean with a trio of cruise ships: Magic , Wonder and Dream . Ships are popular with families, of course, and Disney does a good business selling land / sea packages combining cruises with a visit to the Magic Kingdom, but these ships are worthy cruises in their own right, too.

Disney Cruise Line: Ships Cruising the Caribbean
The 877-passenger Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder are sister ships with a few design differences: art deco for the Magic, art nouveau for the Wonder. Both feature excellent Disney entertainment, from live shows to first-run movies. Disney’s “imaginers” outdid themselves, especially in designing the specialty restaurants on board; the food is far from standard theme park fare. The ships have nightclubs, shops, a spa, gym and children’s program, but they do not have a casino.
Disney Cruise Line: Caribbean Ports
Both the Magic and the Wonder are located in Port Canaveral, on Florida’s east coast, near Cape Canaveral, about a 40-minute drive from the Orlando area and Walt Disney World. Melbourne International Airport is the closest commercial airport to the port.
