Disney Cruise Line (DCL) and The Canaveral Port Authority have made a new 20-year agreement to expand the DCL’s operations at Port Canaveral. In addition, DCL will make Port Canaveral the home for two of their three new ships in the upcoming years.
The new agreement lasts for 20 years, with two additional five-year renewals.
Initially the agreement call guarantee remains at the current level of 150 calls, but increases to 180 calls in 2023, and up to 216 calls in 2024 through the remainder of the 20-year term.
The agreement also continues DCL‘s exclusive operation from Cruise Terminal 8, in addition to providing preferential use of the Port’s Cruise Terminal 10 for a third homeport vessel.
The planned waterside and landside improvements to Cruise Terminal 8 and Cruise Terminal 10 will accommodate the growth of DCL’s fleet. The new ships are expected to be delivered in 2021, 2022 and 2023. Two of the new ships will call Port Canaveral home for at least their first five years of operation.
All four of DCL’s cruise ships in its existing fleet made Port Canaveral their home port when they debuted. DCL‘s two biggest ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, are currently homeported at Port Canaveral year-round, while the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder rotate home ports.
