Disney’s first-ever cruise out of New Orleans sells out in just an hour: Report

Disney’s new Caribbean cruise from New Orleans sold out in just one hour after going on sale to the public, according to the Sun Herald in Gulfport, Mississippi. (I wonder if Princess Tiana from “Princess and the Frog” was able to snag a pair of tickets?)

“You wouldn’t believe the people that jumped on that,” Brenda Walker, co-owner of the Cruise Planners franchise “Coast Cruises and More,” told the outlet. “It sold out in one hour. The whole cruise.”

That’s up to 2,713 passengers in  875 staterooms.

The first four-day expedition on the “Disney Wonder” ship is set to depart February 2020, marking the company’s first time sailing from Louisiana.

“It just shows you how eager people are to cruise local,” Walker added.

In September, Disney announced plans to establish a new home port in New Orleans. The cruise line also announced a highly anticipated return to the Hawaiian Islands; cruises out of Puerto Rico; and popular itineraries to tropical destinations from Florida and California.

The Disney Wonder will have six cruises during its stay in New Orleans, including four-, six- and seven-night Western Caribbean sailings; a seven-night Bahamian cruise; and a 14-night Panama Canal voyage. The departures will occur Feb. 7 through March 6.

Among other itineraries involving the Wonder:

• The ship will offer Southern Caribbean sailings during two seven-night voyages departing Jan. 19 and 26 from San Juan, Puerto Rico, followed by a five-night Bahamian cruise.

• Beginning on March 20, the ship embarks on seven sailings from San Diego to Baja and the Mexican Riviera, ranging from two to seven nights,

• Disney will return to Hawaii after a five-year hiatus, with two cruises on the Wonder: a nine-night voyage to Honolulu from Vancouver, Canada, on April 29; and a 10-night sailing back to Vancouver on May 8.
