Disney Cruise Lines has released its itineraries for the 2013 season and Vancouver is once again a home port.
Starting May 27, the Disney Wonder will depart Vancouver 16 times throughout the year, travelling through the fjord at Tracy Arm and docking in the Alaskan ports of Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. Disney debuted its Alaskan cruises in Vancouver last year, carrying approximately 90,000 passengers and contributing $40 million to the city’s economy.
The organization switched to Seattle as the departure hub for 2012, but Vancouver’s closer proximity to Alaska and positive feedback from travellers contributed to Disney’s decision to reinstate Vancouver as the departure port for Wonder next year. A Disney cruise is an ideal pre or post conference idea for delegates travelling with families.
