Skift Take

Passengers and tourism officials are excited by the itinerary additions, which include Disney Cruises sailing out of New York, Miami, and Galveston, Texas, and making port calls to Hawaii and Canada.

More than anything, 2012 has been a year of “firsts” for the Disney Cruise Line.

It started back on Feb. 28, when the Disney Fantasy — still awash with that “new boat” smell — became the first DCL vessel to sail into New York Harbor.

Then, on March 1, the massive ocean liner was the first Disney ship to be christened in New York City [the Magic, Wonder and Dream all were christened in Port Canaveral, Fla.] in a spectacular nighttime celebration.
