    Are the 2022 Panama Canal cruises sold out or is there some other reason I can't find them? Please tell me that 2022 dates even if they are sold out, I can keep checking in.

    Ahoy there, Monica! Welcome aboard planDisney! 

    Ah, a fellow Panama Canal enthusiast, I see! My wife and I sailed on the Westbound Panama Canal Itinerary in 2017, and we still talk about it as probably our favorite cruise of all time. Not only because it was 14 glorious nights aboard the Disney Wonder - our favorite ship in the fleet - but also because we were on the first ship ever through the canal's new locks! Talk about making history at sea! 

    When it comes to 2022 Panama Canal cruises, I have good news and potentially upsetting news. The good news is that they aren't sold out, but the potentially upsetting news is that you likely don't see any in the system because the only scheduled Panama Canal Itinerary has already happened this year. Back in March, the Disney Wonder sailed west through the canal to reposition to the West coast and has remained there during its Alaska season in advance of an extended season sailing out of San Diego. Previous years saw the Disney Wonder sailing back East during the fall to homeport in Galveston and New Orleans, but 2022 is taking a new approach! 

    So unfortunately, Monica, there are no plans for any 2022 Panama Canal Cruises. That said, with the recent release of the remaining 2023 itineraries, you'll see that the Panama Canal cruises are planning to return - with the Disney Magic heading West for the first time! 

    I know that's likely not the news you were hoping for, but I thank you for your question! I hope that if you are looking to sail in 2022 that you find a cruise that will work for you, or if you're really set on the Panama Canal (and why wouldn't you be?) that you circle the dates in 2023 to secure your spot! If you have any additional questions as you take on planning. please drop me another line here at planDisney!

    Here's to fair winds, following seas, and new adventures!
