LST | via PR Newswire | 2023 Disney Cruise Line Fall Itineraries Offer Family Fun | CELEBRATION, Fla. — In the year 2023, Disney Cruise Line will begin offering amazing fall vacations that carry families from coast to coast. These vacations will include unique sailings with spook-tacular surprises, holiday cheer, and the fleet’s first-ever departures from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On board the Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime Cruises, adults and children of all ages will have the opportunity to experience the magic of the holiday season. These cruises depart from Florida, California, and New York.

“We are excited to provide families with experiences that create lasting memories,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Cruise Line. “With offerings for the entire family, specially curated activities for both Halloween and the holidays and a brand-new home port in South Florida, our guests will have more ways than ever to experience the magic of Disney at sea.”

Cruises themed around Halloween on the High Seas will resume in the middle of September and continue through October 2023. On these cruises, which are not particularly spooky, passengers will have the opportunity to trick-or-treat at sea, celebrate the season at Mickey’s Mouse-querade party, eat, drink, and be scary with their favorite characters while they are dressed in Halloween costumes, and celebrate the season at Mickey’s Halloween party.

Very Merrytime Cruises, which celebrate the spirit of the holiday season, will take place on Disney Cruise Line ships beginning in early November and continuing through December. These cruises will be exceptionally cheerful and bright. On certain cruises, the Disney enchantment will take on a whole new meaning with characters decked out in festive costume from head to (mistle)toe, a special tree-lighting ceremony, Christmas décor, and special visitors in the form of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.

On July 28, 2022, reservations will become available to the general public. You can get additional information by going to
