On May 19, Disney Cruise Line announced its schedule for fall 2015 trips. The family cruise line will offer two sailings to Hawaii aboard the Disney Wonder. The ship also returns to West Coast, offering departures from San Diego and Galveston, Texas.
For its first Hawaiian sailing, departing Sept. 7, the Disney Wonder will depart from Vancouver,B.C. and end at Honolulu. For the Sept. 17 sailing, the sailing ends at Vancouver. The DCL’s Hawaiian cruises also make stops at Hilo (Hawaii Island), Nawiliwili (Kauai); and Kahului (Maui) on the first sailing, and reverses the stops for the second.
During these cruises, DCL guests may take in such sights that make Hawaii such a popular travel destination. The Big Island offers waterfalls, rainforests at the Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes. At Kauai, guests can soak up the sun the beaches or see the Waimea Canyon, sometimes called "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Maui offers a range of sights and activities, from shopping and dining to the Haleakala Crater at Haleakalā National Park. And while visiting Honolulu, guests may explore Oahu through a variety of activities: visiting the beaches of Waikiki, the Dole Plantation or Pearl Harbor, for instance.
These sailings mark the second time the Disney Wonder, on of Disney’s classic ships, has taken DCL guests to Hawaii. The 2,700-passenger ship first sailed to the islands in 2012. Rates for these itineraries start at $1,650 per person, a price that reflects a standard inside stateroom and double occupancy.
