Disney Cruises Australia Opens Up 2 More Epic Sails for Aussie Families

For any Australians desperate to sail on Disney Wonder in local waters next year, we’ve got some good news! There will be TWO more Disney Cruises Australia voyages on sale this week (October 13th to be exact) and the cruises look out of this world!

You may have heard that Disney Cruises is sailing into Australia and New Zealand for the first time ever. However, bookings sold out in just ONE day and most travel agents now have waitlists.

The original Disney Cruises Australia are sailing out of several locations including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland. A lot of families missed out or are currently on waitlists hoping to secure a cabin.

But, good news – there’s another option to experience the Disney Wonder down under AND take in a new location too. Enter Disney Cruise’s Transpacific Sailings! 

Transpacific – meaning across the Pacific and all the way to Hawaii! Aloha! 

There are TWO Transpacific voyages on Disney Wonder, which go on sale on 13 October, to set sail on 13 October 13 2023 and 16 February 2024. 

Here are the details:

  • 13-night voyage from Honolulu to Sydney departing October 13, 2023, priced from $3,950 per person twin share 
  • 15-night voyage from Sydney to Honolulu departing February 16, 2024, priced from $4,800 per person twin share 

The cruise ship is the same ship as the smaller Disney cruises – the Disney Wonderhome to 11 decks overflowing with restaurants and pools. You can expect plenty of Disney-related fun during the two-week adventure too (more on what’s on deck below).

These are once again expected to sell out in record time and many travel agents such as Mr. Chocolate’s Travel are taking pre-bookings if you’d like to put your name down.

How it works:

After securing your cabin, you will need to either get yourself TO Honolulu or Sydney. 

If you are opting for the Sydney to Honolulu journey, once you get to Honolulu, it’s up to you to find accommodation (if you’d like to stay a few nights) and book your flight back to Australia.

If Hawaii has been on your family’s bucket list, then this might be a good opportunity to see this beautiful part of the world AND experience a Disney Cruise at the same time.

Disney Cruises Australia here we come! 

What’s in store on a Disney Cruise? Eat, drink, swim, play, relax, all the while experiencing the magic of Disney.

There are roving Disney characters ready for photos and to meet and greet but there are also live musical performances including Frozen, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Cinderella and Aladdin. 

End the night with a Mickey Party set to DJ beats, nightly fireworks and a pirate shindig on the vessel’s deck.

Facilities-wise, there’s the Aqualab – a massive water playground as well as three themed pools including Goofy’s Pool. There’s also the D-lounge for chilling out and the Disney Oceaneer Club – a huge playground plus imaginatively themed games and activities.

There are even the Edge and Vibe clubs for tweens and teens only, with computers, video games, and music. For the adults, there are plenty of adult-only areas including the Crown & Fin pub, cocktail bar Signals and a day spa and salon. 

Magic at Sea also does an adorable Royal Court Royal Tea for the little royals in your world as well as the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique – a special salon for little princesses and princes.

Magic, a Mouse House and meals too! 

Room-wise, you’ve got several different options to choose from, some with ocean views, others with private balconies, and plenty of Disney-themed options including:

  • Inside Stateroom
  • Oceanview Stateroom
  • Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah
  • Concierge Stateroom with Verandah

The dining setup rotates so each cruise will take you to a different location with a different theme from some of the popular culinary options from Disney films. This includes Tiana’s Place from The Princess and the Frog, and Tritons, named after Ariel’s father in The Little Mermaid. 

We’re not sure whether Disney Cruises will be bringing any more cruises to Australia in the future – we expect they will given the massive response they’ve already had.

However, this could very well be your last opportunity to experience the magic of Dinsey on water and indulge in an epic trip to Hawaii to boot. So, who will be putting their name down??
