Based on an overwhelming response to its first Hawaiian itinerary, Disney Cruise Line® is adding a second Hawaiian cruise to its 2012 schedule. 

The new 14-night itinerary departs Oct. 14, 2012, from Los Angeles. It includes stops at Kahului, Maui; Nawiliwili, Kauai; Honolulu, O’ahu; and Hilo, Hawai‘i; plus Ensenada, Mexico. In addition, there are eight relaxing days at sea.

Bookings open today for Platinum and Gold Castaway Club Members. Silver Castaway Club Members and first-time Guests can book beginning Monday, Sept. 26.

The addition of a second Hawaiian voyage complements a diverse array of 2012 itineraries departing from the West Coast, including cruises to the Mexican Riviera, Pacific Coast and Alaska.

If you’d like more info or don’t want to miss out on the fun, give Margaret a call or email.
