Three Reasons To Enjoy A Disney Cruise From San Diego In 2019
As we settle in to more chilly days of winter, most of us start dreaming of visiting tropical destinations. We all know and love the Caribbean and Bahamian Disney Cruise Line sailings out of Port Canaveral. But did you know about the two, four, five and seven-night voyages out of San Diego? Let’s take a look at the top three reasons your next Disney Cruise Line sailing should depart from this Southern California port.
A Disney Cruise Line vacation can be more than what happens between embarkation and debarkation. Take time before or after your cruise to explore the incredible sites and activities of San Diego.
The world-famous San Diego Zoo is a can’t-miss experience! San Diego Zoo Safari Park, the zoo’s sister attraction, presents a unique opportunity to view more than 3,500 exotic animals in a sprawling 1,800-acre facility. Many animals are free to roam in vast open habitats.
History buffs should venture into Old Town San Diego, which is brimming with historic buildings, shops and restaurants. In 1769, the area became the first permanent Spanish settlement in what later became the state of California. This area is regarded as the “birthplace” of modern California.
San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter offers 16 blocks of Victorian-era buildings containing modern restaurants, boutiques and nightclubs. Nearby, Balboa Park is home to over a dozen museums, plus theaters and gardens—all in a lushly landscaped Spanish Colonial setting.
And for the ultimate Disney fans, there is a special kind of adventure before you sail away. Add on the Adventures by Disney Southern California Short Escape, and experience behind-the-magic visits to The Walt Disney Studios and Disney Archives as well as a private tour of Walt Disney Imagineering. Plus take a visit to the happiest place on Earth – the Disneyland Resort!
Once you’ve enjoyed all that San Diego has to offer then it’s time to set sail on a cruise to Baja or the Mexican Riviera. You’ll dock in picturesque seaside towns where miles of beaches ideal for sailing and scuba diving await. Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta are waiting for you to explore. Experience world-class sport fishing of Cabo, the renowned wineries of Ensenada, or check out the beauty of the jungles and canyons as you zipline over the trees in Puerto Vallarta. There’s something for everyone on the Baja and Mexican Riviera cruises setting sail from San Diego.
The Disney Wonder cruise ship is full of fun and relaxation. It is home to 11 decks overflowing with family-friendly restaurants, themed pools and more. Kids can play alongside their favorite Marvel Super Heroes in the Marvel Super Hero Academy while the grown-ups enjoy adult-exclusive dining and a luxurious spa. You and your family can enjoy delicious southern cooking and live jazz music at Tiana’s Place, or can relive Anna and Elsa’s Frozen adventure in a unique Broadway-style stage show.
