Disney Wish Arrives in Port Canaveral

3 days ago in "Disney Wish"

Posted: Wednesday June 22, 2022 7:09am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Disney Wish arrived at Port Canaveral in Florida earlier this week after traveling nearly 4,768 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean from Bremerhaven, Germany.


The Disney Wish will sail year-round from Port Canaveral, offering a series of three- and four-night Bahamas cruises to Nassau and Disney’s private island oasis, Castaway Cay, beginning July 14

On June 29, Disney will live stream the christening of the Disney Wish.

The event will include an exclusive look inside some of the ship's most highly anticipated features — like AquaMouse, the first-ever Disney attraction at sea; first-of-their-kind dining adventures themed to “Frozen” and Marvel; an immersive lounge set in the Star Wars galaxy; and a real-life wonderland for kids at Disney's Oceaneer Club.

Check back here on June 29 2022 at 11am ET for the live event.

Yeah it sucks. I was supposed to be on the test cruise leaving this Friday which they canceled. Originally Disney just shortened our test cruise from 4 to 3 nights, then a day later canceled it. I am wondering if they are going to keep the test cruise scheduled for the weekend of July 9th.

There’s still the christening cruise and a few more preview cruises before any paying guests.

If CMs are not guinea pigs, inaugural guests are!

I believe they pretty much just paid government taxes/fees and gratuities.

That only happens to first time cruisers on itineraries out of Miami...Oh. I kid, I kid. This is all "New Ship" drama. Seems like The Wish is still being refined and rather than push the maiden voyage, which could still happen, they are canceling the test cruises for CMs in order to complete the final touches.

How do you get dropped from a cruise? 😳

They shouldn't charge for a test cruise!

my friend had to pay for her cruise this coming weekend...highly discounted but she still paid.

I hope Disney has the decency to refund the $0 these folks paid.

My neighbor was supposed to cruise yesterday and was dropped. My friend is supposed to cruise this weekend and was also dropped.
