Disney Cruise Line has announced significant itinerary changes for the Disney Wish.
The Disney Wish will not return to Port Canaveral as scheduled on Friday, September 30, 2022 as Hurricane Ian hits Florida. The current 4-night Bahamian itinerary on the Disney Wish will now return either Saturday, October 1 or Sunday, October 2, depending on weather conditions.
Guests sailing on the Wish cheered when the captain announced the change.
Our @DisneyCruise Wish was supposed to return Friday. The captain just announced we won’t be returning until Saturday. Listen as the diners in Arendelle erupt in cheers when the announcement is made. #HurricaneIan pic.twitter.com/nZNM5Sdeg7
