    Kyle from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    there used to be sail dates and itinerary books onboard they no longer offer that can we still get one via mail the online version makes it more difficult to compare cruises

    Ahoy there, Kyle, and thanks for sailing our way here at planDisney! 

    Ah, the itinerary brochures - those were the coolest things that ever showed up at our house when we expressed interest in a Disney Cruise Line vacation - right alongside those Disney planning DVDs...or even - GASP - the VHS tapes that we'd watch over and over again. Kids these days don't know how good they have it, not having to wait for a cassette to rewind...

    Huh, it finally happened...I've become my father...

    While I deal with this existential crisis, I'll offer this suggestion: While I wasn't able to confirm the availability of these documents to be sent through the mail, I do know that whenever new itineraries are released, they create a similar PDF file that you can download and print from the Disney Cruise Line website. While it's not printed on fancy paper and in booklet form, it still allowed us to see all of the available sailings at a glance! 

    In fact, when my family was making plans for our Summer 2023 sailing, we printed it out and broke out the highlighters and different color pens to circle our favorite itineraries. We settled on a 7-Night Northern Europe itinerary sailing from Copenhagen, and we can't wait to keep planning for that vacation! 

    But true to form, you should've seen all the "back-of-the-envelope" math and schedule calculations we left in the margins, I'm sure if we were to find a cruise planning booklet like before, the printed-out sheets would be nearly identical in that respect! It may be an inexact solution, but we obviously made it as fun as we possibly could! 

    I WISH I had better news for you, Kyle, but I hope that at least gives you an idea of how to make DOLE whip when life hands you a few pineapples! Thank you so much for your question, and if any other issues bubble to the surface as you continue planning and narrowing-down your shortlist of cruises, please leave me another message here at planDisney! 

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