    Is there a Alaska cruise leaving in the port of Galveston or New Orleans.

    Hi Marieta!

    I’m so happy you came to planDisney to ask about Alaska. Between the wildlife, scenery, and  glaciers, everything about Alaska is exquisite! I truly hope you will be able to book an Alaskan itinerary on the Disney Wonder for next year. 

    As a Louisiana resident, I understand why you are asking about whether you can sail from New Orleans or Galveston to get to Alaska with Captain Mickey. Disney Cruise Line will sail from Vancouver, Canada for all its Alaskan itineraries when those resume in 2022. Vancouver is a beautiful city and a real treat to be able to explore in conjunction with a Disney voyage. But it does mean that Galveston and New Orleans would not be an option if Alaska is in your binoculars.

    You could still be able to experience the Disney Wonder from Galveston and New Orleans to other destinations. Having sailed from the Big Easy, I have to say it makes for a delightful destination pre- or post-cruise. New Orleans combines the best of food, music, sightseeing, and nightlife. "Laissez les bon temps rouler" (let the good times roll) indeed! 

    It might require more effort to get to Alaska, but I promise you that it is SO worth it! Hands down, this voyage was our family’s favorite cruise destination. Then again, it’s hard to beat seeing whales and glaciers and getting to take photos with snow-capped mountains in the background. Best days ever!

    Marieta, I hope this has you eager for an Alaskan adventure!  Cruise back to planDisney if you need more help deciding on a Disney cruise. Have a WONDERful voyage!

    Happy Sailing!
