Disney Cruise Line Sails to Jamaica for the First Time Departing from Galveston, Texas
(November 5, 2012) Disney Cruise Line will visit Jamaica for the first time with new itineraries departing from Galveston, Texas in late 2013. The new seven-night Western Caribbean sailings will call on Falmouth, Jamaica, as well as Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico.
While in Falmouth, one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved Georgian towns, guests can sample the city’s history and culture, take a trip through time on a horse-and-buggy ride, shop for arts and crafts and taste Jamaica’s signature jerk recipes. Bamboo raft rides along the Martha Brae River offer exceptional views of the island’s lush tropical scenery and nearby Ocho Rios is known for its spectacular Dunn’s River Falls.
Also in late 2013, Disney Cruise Line will sail seven-night Bahamas cruises from Galveston, calling on Key West, Nassau, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. A tropical paradise reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, Castaway Cay is the ultimate escape, with powdery white sand beaches, turquoise blue waters and swaying palm trees. Always a favorite port of call for guests, Castaway Cay is the place for those seeking adventure, relaxation or quality time with the family.
