    Hello! I'm in the very early planning stages and I'm wondering when ALL vessel/cruise-line options for booking a cruise in Dec or Jan become available. How long before the voyage? We will likely be booking for Dec 2021/Jan 2022.

    Hi there, Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you found us and brought your question to us while in the beginning stages of planning for a Disney Cruise Line vacation!  I always tell others that you cannot go wrong with a Disney Cruise Line vacation – there is so much fun to be had onboard including character greetings, incredible live entertainment and shows as well as fantastic food and incredible service throughout!  There is something for everyone to enjoy and I think you’ll be hooked once you experience it; I know I was!

    There is not a set schedule as to when the itineraries and sail dates are released, but it’s usually anywhere from about fifteen-eighteen months ahead of a sail date.  Currently, itineraries are available through the end of 2019 and those were just recently released.   I suggest keeping a close eye on the Disney Cruise Line and the Disney Parks Blog sites starting about eighteen months out as they will first be announced officially there!

    In the meantime, I recommend continuing to familiarize yourself with all that Disney Cruise Line has to offer Guests, even exploring some of the currently available onshore excursions; if you don’t have a destination in mind, seeing some of the current offerings may help narrow it down!  But with new destinations and Disney Cruise Line constantly adding destinations, I can guarantee you will have some great itineraries to choose from when the time comes for you to book your reservation!

    Please come back with any other questions you have as your planning continues, Melissa!
