    We are looking at the October Panama Canal cruise on the Magic. We have previously done this cruise on the Magic and it was all during the day with a narrator on board that you could listen to on deck. Will this cruise be the same?

    Ahoy there, Marilyn! Welcome aboard planDisney! 

    A fellow Panama Canal itinerary cruiser! I feel like there are so many special things about this sailing and I was so glad to see it pop back up on the schedule - even if it's not on my favorite ship, the Disney Wonder! We spent a fair amount of time during our transit of the canal in 2017 just sitting on Deck 4 while listening to Ret. Captain Puckett talk about things from his storied career as a Panama Canal Pilot! Talk about an incredible job! 

    When it comes to next year's Panama Canal itineraries on the Disney Magic, while we don't know the specifics, if I were to take out my charts and make a sailor's educated guess, I would hope that this hallmark of the journey would be making another appearance. Remember though, entertainment - even something like the narrated transit - is always subject to change, and it's best to check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app when you embark to see what magic is in store! 

    I have such fond memories of this sailing, and if not for a little one, we'd be right there with you. We'll just have to live on vicariously through all the castaways, both Eastbound and Westbound in 2023! 

    Thank you so much for your question, Marilyn, and if you have any others as you continue planning for arguably the best itinerary around, be sure to drop us another line here at planDisney! 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
